If my client sends me a doc file and I translate it with my Wordfast Pro 3.2.2, can I convert the ttx file into a ttx file? How is it done?
Or should I ask the client to send me ttx files?
Thanks for your support. Regards, AT

Thank you, Dominique. I read the article. How effective is the method described there? I have never dealt with ttx files. Rgds, AT

I think it works, as long as the TTX has been segmented in Trados Workbench (if your client hasn't done it for you, you will need to do it yourself, and for that you will need to have a copy of Trados, which you probably don't have).

I can't say for sure as I don't use Wordfast Pro myself and none of my clients ask me to translate TTX files. The best way to find out is to try it yourself.

I do it all the time. As Dominique says, it needs to be pre-segmented, or, rather, pre-translated. IF you receive a ttx, use workbench to "translate" the document, then open the ttx in WFP and clear all targets (alt+shift+delete) and start translating. Then use "save translated file" and it will automatically be saved as ttx (after you optionally rename it).

If you receive a doc file, follow these instructions:

Thank you, Dominique and Lianne. I received the segmented file from my client and was able to translate it and save it. Regards, AT
