You can use the latest version of Wordfast Classic[1] to convert a TTX file to a doc, translate/proofread and then convert it back to the TTX format. The TTX file should be segmented first. Even pre-translating it in a trial version of Trados 2007[2] against an empty TM should be enough. To do so, they need to open Trados Workbench > Tools > Translate > Add (to select the TTX file) > (check) Segment unknown sentences > Translate.


  • Open the (segmented) TTX in MS Word.
  • Press Alt+Down to start translation
  • When you are asked to tag the file, answer affirmatively.
  • Translate!
  • Cleanup; this will create a TRANSLATED version of the TTX file in the same folder.

Make sure you do not change the file names and locations during the translation.[3]
