Hello Linguists,

I bought recently SDL Trados Studio 2014 and I am currently translating a project of 20 000 words. My associate who proofread my translations doesn't have SDL and I am wondering if the application "SDL Converter for Microsoft Office" on the Welcome Menu can convert the Word file back into XLIFF file?

If so, is the project going to be updated with the changes in the Translation Memory when I convert the file back in XLIFF or I have to go through my TM manually?

Thank you in advance for all answers,
MER

Hi Marie,

In SDL Studio go to the "Review tab on the ribbon and click on "Export for External Review" in the "File Actions" panel. Your file will then be converted into a bilingual Word file which you can send to the proof reader. They should not change the name of the file or anything at all in the source column. When you get your file back you can first check it in Word and then use the button "Update from External Review" and your project will be updated with the changes. There's also the Help for a more detailed explanation.

Ben
