We have 14 files which our translator needs to translate. However, files have ext ".doc.ttx" and we think they are Trados 7 Tag Editor files. We got TRADOS TagEditor here. Unfortunetly our translator does not have Trados, but uses Wordfast. How can we convert these files into a format acceptable to Wordfast.

Many many thanks,

I don't know about Wordfast, but Hearstome XLIFF Editor will do just as well and the translator can download a trial version which will work for a month.

Another tool with a free version and TTX support (although I did not test it) is MemoQ.

The translator could also download a trial version of Trados and translate these files in TagEditor without a Translation Memory, or maybe the TM will be small enough for demo mode.

TTXExpress Jun 26, 2007

You could try TTXExpress, which is a macro that converts TTX files to RTF (for use in Wordfast) and back, once the translation is complete.

You can find it here:

It should be added that TTXExpress may not be able to correctly convert all TTX files to RTF and back. You should therefore try it out first and see if it will work for you.

HTH.

When I used TTXpress before I bought Trados I found that for some reason every file gave an error message the first two times I tried to convert it, but not the third time. So if it first gives an error message it might be worth it to keep trying.
