I wonder if Trados can handle Transit NXT ppf files?

Not with Trados Feb 5

Hi Ganerdene,

Trados doesn't support PPF files, but MemoQ does. I know it from experience.icon_smile.gif

Good luck!

SDL app doesn't work somehow Feb 6

I got the plugin but it doesn't seem to work. What is wrong?

I've installed this plug-in in Studio 2017 (running on Windows 8.1) and it works fine.

You'll have to filter on untranslated segments and clear them, since Transit populates them with the corresponding source segments.

memoQ 2015 (and probably more recent versions too) also imports the termbases and translation memories. It gives you the choice, how to import Transit's segments statuses.

CafeTran Espresso 2018 doesn't import the terminology or translation memories included in the Transit package. But it groups Transit's tags to the minimum and excludes segment-spanning tags.

No luck Feb 8

I have Windows 10, and it gets stuck after initialization.

Broken on Windows 10 Feb 8

The plug-in doesn't work on Windows 10. A project is created, the Transit files are placed in the target directory (nl_NL), without the necessary conversion to SDLXLIFF.

That sounds like a rather drastic solution. Did you report the problems to the developers of the plug-in? I guess that they would be interested to support their tool on the latest Windows version too.
