I am relatively new to Trados and was sent ttx. files from a translation company to download and translate.
I have been totally unable to download them correctly. Either they won´t open or they appear scrambled.
What should they look like when opened? Is there some technical knack I am missing?

Thank you for any tips or help you can provide.

Kind regards,

Version correct? Feb 12, 2008

If you're sure you're using the same version as the client, the files may have been damaged during download. Have the client zip the files and download again. That will prevent damage of the ttx files.

Hi Jean,

Did you make sure to open them in TagEditor? TTX files are for TagEditor.

Hi Jean,
the ttx files are TagEditor files. Sometimes to open them, you need an .ini file. Maybe you should ask the person that send you the translation to provide you with the correct ini file to open them.
