Dear All,

I am not familiar at all with Transit and just received some .pfx files to be translated. One part was already done by some people, but I cannot manage to count it out using Transit.
What I wanted to do is export the TM (I have Transit 3.0 Satellite PE installed) as a .tmx file and import it into MetaTexis in order to work on a software I know well and make a precise quotation. Any help is welcome !

Thanks a lot

Transit - Metatexis Apr 24, 2008


A TMX export with Transit Satellite is not possible. All you could do is ask somebody with the full version to do this for you. However, this is not without problems. Two different people did this for me before and I always got a TM back that included untranslated segments, which was worthless for me.

The only thing you could do is extract the language pairs from the pxf (a pxf file is nothing else than a zip file, change the extension and you will be able to extract them), translate those using Metatexis, import them into Satellite afterwards to check whether everything went well (no issues with character sets etc.).

While translating, I would however keep Transit Satellite open to check for dictionary entries, fuzzy matches etc.

Hope that helps at least a bit.
