Exporting part of a project

My client has given me a project consisting of 2 files. I have also set up the project in Transit to include the 2 files.

Now however my client tells me that I should send him the first file as soon as I have finished it.

My question - is it possible to export just one of the two files? If I click Project - Export, this will surely export both files, even though I have only translated one of them. Or do I simply delete the untranslated file, then repeat the export when I have finished the second file?

Thank you for any help.

Transit XV Smart, SP26.

Both options are possible May 8, 2010

Hi Rob,

You can export all the file as many times as you want. after the first export delete the untranslated one.

The other possibility applies for both exporting and importing as well:

During the import or export:

On the dialog box, where the button "Import" or "Export" exist, there is another button called "More":
- click it, a list with the project files will appear in the left lower corner of the dialog box,
- check the selection box "Impor\Export individual file(s)"
- Select the file(s) you want to import\export.

Not in case you use this option to import only some files instead of importing all the files, the UNimported will still be seen, when you open the project, but Transit will not be able to open their language pairs, as they still has not been imported.
So, remember to import those files, before you start working on them.

Best regards

Thanks ATT,

I used the Export option with the "More" button. Everything worked as you said it would - thanks a lot!
