I have just upgraded to do an urgent small job, and the option "Create Return Package" is grayed out!!! I've scoured the Internet to try to find the solution, to no avail.. I need to send a return package which the client can read using Studio 2011.

Save the file Apr 30, 2014

Hi! I had this problem a while ago, I am not sure right now how I solved it (but it worked fine), I think I just saved the working package (Save as...) in a separate folder. The same works with batch tasks, you cannot perform a batch task (e.g. pre-translate) until you save the bilingual file. If this doesn't help, I will try to look into this problem.

Change status of the project! Apr 30, 2014


Can you change the project status from "Completed" to "In Progress"? Maybe that will work!

I've had this problem today and tried Maria Popova's solution. It really worked. Thank you!

Solution: Select the project and, in the Home tab, click on "Revert to In Progress" in the Tasks menu.

I set to "in progress" and it did not work. Oct 8, 2015

This project was created by me in Studio 2015 using the source files. It was not created using a package. If anyone can help I really appreciate it.

To be able to create a return package, you should have used a project package created with the Professional version of Studio with files to translate. If you create a project locally in your machine, as you said you had, you can't create return packages.
So you needn't worry!
