I keep getting a "can't read rtf file.." messagae. These are Word files. I would like to align the files to extract the memory, but i does not work and it's driving me bonkers!

If anyone can help, I'd be most grateful.

Did I mention that i am using Trados 7.0?

Try saving the files as RTF Mar 2, 2007

Hi there!

That happenned to me once (working with TRADOS 6.0) and it solved by saving the files as RTF, then aligning them.

I guess that whatever turns DOC files into RTF files from WinAlign didn't work that time.

I hope that helps.
Regards,
Jerónimo

Use PTtools from Wordfast instead Mar 2, 2007

Save the docs as .rtf and Use PTtools instead.
Then export to TMX 1.1. Hope it helps.

Yo can dowload them here: http://rhodes.globat.com/~wordfast.net/index.php?whichpage=downloadpage
