Hi all,

I apologise if this topic was already covered, but I have done a little research on these forums and I could not find any answer.
I will try to make as straightforward as possible.

I have a customer who uses only Wordfast.
I "only" have SDL Studio 2014.

Is there a SAFE way to accept Wordfast files from customer (I assume they would come as .txml file, wouldn't they?), import them in Studio, translate them, convert them back in Wordfast format and send them back to the customer?

Same question applies to any project related file, i.e. TMs and glossaries

Thanks a lot for your help.

If you don't want to buy another tool, I would use WFA to avoid compatibility issues. It's a free, cloud-based version. Strictly speaking, Studio is not a cross-platform tool.

Hi Paolo,

Many translators using Studio handle TXML files with the TXML filetype that is freely available on the OpenExchange.

This article mat answer most of your questions:
