I cannot clean a txml file that I translated with WF Pro 3.2.2. Originally it was a segmented ttx file, which I saved as txml. But after finishing translation I cannot clean it up. What should I do? Thanks for your help. Regards, AT

You cannot "clean clean" a ttx file into its original doc (or whatever it was) within WFP.

If you (manage to) open a ttx in WFP as txml, ttx is considered the source document. So when you use "save translated file" it will save as a ttx file again.

Question: who wants the clean output? Normally, if you get a ttx from a client without the source file, you cannot create a clean output in TagEditor either.

Basically, translation software can only create a clean output file if you have the original source file.

Agency is reponsible Jan 19, 2014

I get txml files and after translating , return it to them. Soon after I get the clean file.
Then based on this doc appearance/spacing/typos, I correct the txml and send back.
The agency may be holding back the source for various reasons.
It is not for us to reason why, but for us to do and return ( paraphrasing Tennyson) and let the agency do the rest.
