I use tageditor from Trados 6.5.
My client asks me to translate a large Powerpoint file with Tageditor.
Never done it but I have read in different topics that is is easier than in T-Windows.. Good.. but when I try to open the file, the system asks for an ini.file... The client says I do not need it, when I try to use one of my ini-files, it does not work.
What can I do ?

.ppt or .ttx? Oct 11, 2005

Hi Martine,
I use tageditor from Trados 6.5.

Which version are you using (full version number including the 'build number', please - go to Help - About... to find out)? Do you happen to know what version your client uses?

but when I try to open the file, the system asks for an ini.file...

Which file are you trying to open - the source .ppt file, or a .ttx file provided by your client?

Best regards,
Ralf

Trados Tageditor 6.0.0.309 (Build 309)


IIRC the capability to translate PPT files was introduced with TagEditor 6.5. TE 6.0 doesn't recognise the file type - that's why it asks for the .ini file.

Best regards,
Ralf
