I translated a .XLIFF file (XLF file) in Studio 2014. Studio converted the file automatically in a SDLXLIFF file.

The client is working with Wordbee. According to him this CAT doesn't import SDLXLIFF.

So, I have to deliver a .XLIFF file, but all I got is the SDLXLIFF and I have no clue how to convert it.

Is there anybody who can help me please? (quite urgent!)

Export? Dec 22, 2016

If you imported the .xliff in Studio, can't you just export (from the batch tasks)? This usually creates the target file in the same format as the source. Isn't it working for you?

No, when I export the .XLIFF, it converts automatically to SDLXLIFF.

My logic tells me that you should have the option somewhere to "save as target". I seem to recall that you can right-click the project in the project list and then select (I think) "batch tasks" and then there is an option to generate the target file, which should be XLIFF.

Save as Target Dec 22, 2016

If the file was an .xliff it should be an .xliff when saved as target text.
File > Target Text save as (or something like that).
The following dialogue box should offer .xliff automatically.
