Transit NXT: Enable that external translator can export TXF into original format?
Thread poster: David Spanner
Feb 24, 2010


Our problem is the following:
An external translator received a PXF file from us that was saved by him as a TXF file.
The translator is unable to export the document into the original file format (e. g. MS word), so he can only send us the document as a TXF.

Is there a possibility to enable the recipient to export the file into the original file format while creating the project?

You should send him the COD file with your PXF Feb 24, 2010

In order to enable a translator to export the text he translated in transit back to it's original format, you have to include the file's COD send him within your PXF.

This is to be choosen when sending the project (creating the PXF) by choosing "Transit Options" from the Send Project dialog, then chceck the option "Send COD".

in this way, the translator should be bale to export the Word file and check the final output.

Thanks and regards
