I have exported the MemoQ files in mqxliff format and added the mqxliff file extension in Editor xliff file, separated by colon from sdlxiff - Trados still says it doe snot recognize the file type.

Is there some other setting in Trados I am not aware of?
I asked my colleague to try to open with his Trados Sutdio 2015 and he has no problems opening the file I created.

Kindly advice what I am not seeing,
Thanks a lot.

MQXLIFF in Studio Oct 10, 2016

Hello El Cavanaugh,

So I can assist you further could you send me in an private message the 6 digits order number of your license?

If you are working with SDL Trados Studio 2014 you would need this app to open MQXLIFF in Studio:

For Studio 2015 users the app is already installed in the software.

Kind regards,
