Dear All,

I have translated a Transit project using Memoq 4,5. Everything went fine and I've exported the project pressing "Export Transit Project" button in Memoq.

I want to view it in Transit and see If everything is ok before delivering to my client.

I can't find the option to receive a completed project in Transit and help files don't offer any solution to me.

Any help is much appreciated.

Yigit

Opening a project with Transit Satellite 3.0 Jul 3, 2011

Hello,
Did MemoQ export a .pxf or a .txf? If it is a .pxf, when you start Satellite you are asked if you want to "receive an external project". Otherwise select Project | Receive. Select your .pxf and you will be able to view the source and target segments. If the client sent a .pxf, they will expect a .txf from you or the target language pair.

.txf File Jul 3, 2011

Hi Roberto,

A colleague solved my problem. Regarding your question, Memoq exports a .txf file when you complete a Transit project using it.

Thanks for your help.

MemoQ exports a .TXF file, ready for delivery to the client. Normally one cannot open a TXF file in Transit but there is always a solution.

Add .zip extension to both TXF and PXF files. Open the *.txf.zip file with Windows Compressed (zipped) Folder (do not decompress, simply open it). Copy the translated file (Turkish translation has .TRK extension) to the desktop.

Then open the *.pxf.zip file with Windows Compressed (zipped) Folder, and paste that *.TRK file. Delete the zip extension from *.pxf.zip file. Now you can open the "translated" file with Transit Satellite.

Many translators prefer other CAT tools, e.g. MemoQ, DVX or Wordfast to translate Transit Satellite projects. But one should always check the final version in Transit Satellite.
