I have just started working as a freelance translator and I have recently purchased Studio 2014 (I actually wanted older versions too, but I guess that is impossible to purchase). However, one of my agencies still use Trados 2007 (I think...) and wants me to translate an .rtf and deliver it as a bilingual .rtf.

How do I do this?

Is it in some way possible to create a bilingual .rtf using Studio 2014 (or with any of the OpenExchange apps)? I have downloaded the SDL legit! app, so I can convert into .ttx or bilingual .doc, but what about bilingual .rtf?

Thank you so much for any help!

Open the converted file in Word and save it as rtf May 13, 2014

The option appears in the File menu. By the way, rtf seems to be the "native" format for TRADOS 2007 when working with Word files.

I have available the demo (free) version of TRADOS 2007. You could use it for segmenting Word files and producing (and testing) bilingual files (.doc, .docx, .rtf, .ttx). The limitation is that you cannot produce TMs larger than 100 TUs.

If interested on the TRADOS 2007 demo just email me.
