Dear colleagues,

I received an XLIFF file from the client, which I opened and translated in SDL Trados Studio 2011. I now want to send it back as an XLIFF file. Do I need to click on "export for external review"?

Thank you in advance and sorry if this is a repeated question. I couldn't find any related topic that would answer my question.

I think I figured it out. Simply need to click on "save target as.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Saving options Sep 16, 2013

"Save" (Ctrl+S) will save the bilingual XLIFF file, which is what you have been asked to deliver.

"Save target as" (Shift+F12) will give you the target file in its original format (you need the original source document to produce this).

And, since you mention it, "export for external review" exports the bilingual XLIFF file as a bilingual table in Word, so that it can be reviewed by anyone who doesn't have Studio.

HTH,
Emma

Another way (using Translation Workspace Xliff Editor) Sep 16, 2013

There is another way:
Open Translation Workspace Xliff Editor - Tools/SDL XLIFF Converter
There you will find the option to convert the file.

I can't see how this could possibly help the OP. She has translated a file in Studio and wants to sent it to her client. Why would she want to open it in another application?
