Hello Dear Experts,

I work for a client who usually sends me a Word file with the ST included. He insists that the delivery be a bilingual file of the same file format. I use Trados Freelance edition 2014 which enables me product a clean target file. I am not professional with Trados yet. How can I create a bilingual file without doing that manually.

All the thread I could find talks about converting SDLXLIFF files into TMX, but even when I do that I am not sure to create the word file that I want.

P.S. the client does not want a TMX file and do not understand about TMs at all.
Thanks for your help.

Go to the Welcome tab in Studio, select SDL legit RH pane and convert your SDLXLIFF file to a bilingual Word file.

Cheers,

Bernard

conversion fails all the time Jun 14, 2014

Thanks Bernard for your advise. I followed it but I am always faced with the following error message

'Converting file to bilingual doc failed'. Do you have any idea what wrong did I do?

Can you send me your file via my e-mail for me to have a go?

Thanks,
