Dear colleagues,

I've proofread a project, which was translated by another vendor, and inserted my changes in the files. After having sent my TXF file back to the client, I was notified that a number of files were missing.
I've checked the number of files in the original PXF by converting it to ZIP and counting the files - there are 58 of them. Then I converted the TXF file I'd sent to ZIP, and there were only 45 files in it.
Is it possible that Transit Satellite PE 3.0 only allows for a maximum number of 45 files in one TXF file?
Does anybody know how I can work around this?
Thanks in advance!

Kind regards from Brussels,
Jacob

Only changed files are exported to TXF Dec 19, 2007

Depending on the project settings, it is possible that files are only exported to TXF if changes have been made to them. To test and if necessary circumvent this phenomenon, make a "fake" change (enter something and then delete it) in the missing file(s), save them and export the project again.

Just go to the project folder and manually zip the target language pair files.

Problem solved - indeed only changed files are exported to TXF Dec 19, 2007

Thanks to you both, especially to Endres - I followed your suggestion, which worked out perfectly.

Happy translating & holidays,
Jacob
