Hi everyone,

I have packed the translation of a Transit NXT project as a tpf file (I cannot choose any other format). However, the client needs a txf-file. Is there any workaround for this?

Best regards and thanks in advance,


PS. My operating system is Windows Vista Home Edition and the details of my Transit NXT version are: Version 4.0 SP2 Build 781.4

Manual txf file Oct 8, 2010

You can only send back txf files of projects that you received as pxf. How did the customer send the files to you? If you received a pxf file from the customer, this probably means that he/she uses Transit XV. Unfortunately, Transit NXT language files can not be opened in Transit XV. You need to convert the language files first.

If nothing else works, maybe you could convert your target language files to Transit XV files (Button "Reference Material" on the bottom of your Transit NXT window --> convert NXT -- XV) and send them to your customer. The conversion works for whole folder structures, you don't have to convert file by file.

If you have to also send back terminology, you could try to create a txf file yourself. For this you probably need:
- target language files (converted to XV format, see above)
- prj file (copied from the original pxf file)
- terminology files (folders copied from your created tpf file)

Zip all these files together and rename "zip" to "txf".
