I have Transit NXT Freelance lisence (SP 6) and need to send my translation to a proofreader who doesn't have Transit. How do I go about doing this? I rememer there was an option for exporting language pairs to bilingual Word tables for proofreading, but this was years ago and probaly in Transit XV.

Would have been an alternative if I could make it work Aug 14, 2013

Thanks for your reply. If I could make it work, this would have been an option, but strangely nothing happens when I try (as described in the documentation, I have deselected the Print to File option). Printing to PDF from other applications works, but unfortunately not from my Transit NXT installation. I can however print to xps format.

Anyway I think that a bilingual Word table would be better as corrections can easily be made with track changes. PDF readers do in my experience not have this option. That's why I haven't focused on the PDF problem as yet, but perhaps I have to

Installl FreePDF Aug 14, 2013

You'll have to install FreePDF first. Then you convert the PDF to Word via SolidPDF or a free tool. Then you can track changes. Yes, I know ... a lot of steps.
