Getting a xlf file from a SDL Xliff one

I have a question about xlf format.

I have a file to translate with Wordbee. As I want to translate it offline with SDL Trados Studio (mostly to be able to apply my own TM), I import an XLF file.

My problem is that as soon as I modify this XLF file, it becomes a SDL XLIFF document, and wordbee refuses to import it back, with this error message:

"Name of the file - Export.xliff.xlf.sdlxliff[Remove]

Upload failed: File too big or invalid file extension.

Select .xlf file. Maximum file size: 250 MB"

So my question is: is there a way to convert my translated file back to an XLF file so that I can import it back on Wordbee?

Thanks a lot and have a great day,
