I could not locate this anywhere else. I just recently had a regular Trados file to translate, did the job, spell check etc, etc.....send it off to the client....then I get a message saying the file is a DAT. file and he can not use it. What? I did not save it any other way than it was received.....anyone else have that problem and how does not get resolved?
Thanks.

This has nothing to do with Trados Mar 2

To prevent Outlook from attaching winmail.dat when you send an email:
- Click File in Outlook.
- Select Options.
- Go to the Mail category.
Make sure HTML or Plain Text is selected for Compose messages in this format: under Compose messages.

HTH,
Natalia
P.S. There is a tiny application Winmail opener, just in case (however, I doubt your client will be happy to use it, so better change the options in your Outlook)

Hi Helene Mar 2

I cannot help you with MAC as I have never worked at MAC, however, I would suggest sending an archived file instead of a plain .sdlxliff (use any program to create a ZIP or whatever is used on MAC).

See other suggestions at https://discussions.apple.com/thread/700416
