I have all my files dealing with my translations on my PC.

Now I am planning to use my laptop during a vacation in order to continue with a current translation.

Which files do I need to copy to my laptop in order to include the current files I am working on, the reference material I have included with the project, and the TermStar dictionary?

And how do I go about moving the stuff back to the PC once I am back home?

Transit configuration files + projects Aug 24, 2010

first install Transit on the laptop, then overwrite the following folders that you find under (assuming C:\ is your main drive) C:\Program Files\Transit XV:
Config (Transit configuration files are here)
BIN (this is not strictly necessary)
DB (all you dictionaries are here, however you need to link them again using the wizard)
Projects (all your project and respective language pairs are here unless you changed the default path)

Remember to install the same service pack you have on your PC.

As to the reference material, if you include previous project as reference material, then you simply need to copy the folder "Projects" (provided you didn't change the default path when you create or receive a project).
