Some translation methods support multiple file formats. Use the Format combo box to select the format you want to use.

Select the exchange package format. This must be compatible with the editing tool of the translator. Following formats are supported:

Format Description
Soluling project The exchange package is a Soluling project file (.ntp). If your translator does not have a Soluling license, she can download a free translator's edition from our home pages.
This is the recommended format when sending data to a translator.
Soluling package The exchange package is a Soluling exchange file (.ntpx) that contains the project file and optionally source files and the files needed to handle them. If your translator does not have a Soluling license, she can download a free translator's edition from our home pages. Use this instead of a Soluling project if you want to include the source and library file into the exchange package. Include them allows the translator to build localized files and test them.
XLIFF The exchange package is an XLIFF file (.xlf). Use this if your translator uses an XLIFF compatible editing tool such as Trados.
TMX The exchange package is a TMX file (.tmx). Use this if your translator uses a TMX compatible editing tool such as Trados.
Text The exchange package is a text file (.txt). Use this if your translator uses a text editor such as Notepad.
Excel 97-2003 The exchange package is an Excel 97-2003 file (.xls). Use this if your translator uses old Excel.
Excel 2007 or later The exchange package is an Excel 2007 file (.xlsx). Use this if your translator uses an Excel 2007 or later.
OpenDocument Spreadsheet The exchange package is an OpenDocument Spreadsheet file (.ods). Use this if your translator uses Open Office.

Depending on the selected translate method, the above list may only contain some or even one format.
