Yesterday I translated a small file in Studio and sent off the returnpackage. The project was saved with the extension .sdlrpx. Today the customer noticed I had forgotten one segment, and asked me to send the corrected file.
I had already removed the project from the project list. When I tried to open the project the extension should have been .sdlproj. When I double clicked on the .sdlrpx-file, Studio could not open it.
So in a hurry I translated the file from the original package. But this left me wondering where the .sdlproj-file might be? And what is this .sdlrpx for?

.sdlrpx means something like SDL Studio return package Jul 23, 2015

Originally you received an .sdlppx package from your client, and when you create the return package, it will have the sdlrpx extension. (notice ppx and rpx in the extensions.)

You should not try to open the package (I think you need to import it, though I have never tried it myself), but rather open the original project. Surely you still have it on your hard disk so that you could open it, even if you have removed it from the list of projects. Look for a file with the sdlproj as extension.

Yes, I was confused Jul 23, 2015

Its the habit of Studio to save files on the former location instead of asking for the right location every time. The project file was in quite different folders from the other stuff.

change the return package extension Jul 24, 2015

Hi,

You can change the SDL Trados return package extention into .rar and you will find all the inside folders you have already delivered. Then, you can amend all what you need in the bilingual file. Finally, rezip the folders again and after that change the extension from rar into .sdlrpx.

Regards,
Muhammad
