Hello !

Bilingual files are formatted to contain 2 languages, for example English and French. You may receive an empty bilingual file where the second language is empty, or a (partially or completely) pre-translated file where the second language is (partially or completely) filled.

Hope this answers your question.

Nicolas.

TTX Pre-translated Dec 11, 2013

Nicolas is right! One more note is that if the TTX file is partially translated, WF Pro will only shows translated segments which could be confusing. That is why it is important to tell the client to check the option "Segment unknown sentences" during the pre-translation process in Trados which will be copy-sourced by default.

Kind regards,
Yasmin
