I am using SDL Trados 2014, and received a package from a client, containing one file. Later, the client sent me two more files in native format (.docx).

After adding the two new files to the project, and translating all of them, I tried to make a return package, but I can only add the original file to that package, not the two new ones.

Is there a solution to this?

Return just the sdlxliff files Jun 28, 2015

I believe Studio is set up so that you can only return the translation of those files that were part of the original package.

The solution would be to just return the translated sdlxliff files, rather than have them as a return package - or ask the agency to send an updated package with all the files included.

Looks like Jun 30, 2015

Looks like that is true, so I have nothing to do here. Thanks anyway.
