Conversion Principles of Trados Studio 2011

Standard

What comes in as, will come out as –

Add text file -> manage as bilingual (sdlxliff) file -> convert backs to text file upon “finalize”

Add text file -> manage as Trados tag Editor file –> manage as bilingual (sdlxliff file) –> converts back to Trados Tag Editor (upon “finalize”) AND text file (yes, you can as long as you have the original text file … by using “Save Target As”)

Add text file – convert using PDF converter – manage as bilingual (sdlxliff file) –> converts back to THE TEXT FILE, NOT PDF, upon “finalize”

* now you know why PDF made from scanned documents won’t work on Trados.

There is simply no text file to begin with*
