My experience with Language Service Providers is that you simply tell them what version of Frame they have to use on your files. This is part of your contract and they should include it in their quote.
Also, I send .fm files and receive .fm in return. I've never exchanged MIF files with the various LSPs I've used over the years.

Thanks, Barbara! And yes, I got to that link from a google search of "framemaker 12 save as framemaker 8" so I just copied and pasted that address, but when I click on the link from my e-mail below, I can't get to it either. Weird. Here it is the long way, via google: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CC4QFjAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fforums.adobe.com%2Fthread%2F1379901&ei=YAusVK73O5b7apbNgYgL&usg=AFQjCNEmBz8_NOBAwUe6aEJml4HRTut4Bw&sig2=1lld3EvqIObHaVS4tVPRUg Thanks, Lise On Tue, Jan 6, 2015 at 10:16 AM, Barbara Ash <barb...@urgoal.com<mailto:barb...@urgoal.com>> wrote: Lise, You need to request .mif 7, and they need to make sure to change the file extension to .mif when they save.

Framers, A little googling did not clarify anything for me, so I thought I'd ask here. I'm on Frame 8; none of the added features in subsequent releases seemed relevant enough to me to justify upgrading (and it works fine for me on Windows 7). The issue I have is that I need to send some manuals out for quote to be translated, and I want to make sure that the files they send back to me, can be opened in Frame 8. (I figured it's better to clarify upfront, rather than chance running into issues later. I have no idea what the translation companies are able to provide, but Murphy dictates that if I don't clarify, I'll run into issues.) Now, I know you can't save a file opened in Frame 12 directly as a Frame 8-compatible file, but it looks like you can save as .mif--can that be opened in Frame 8? According to this thread, https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1379901, there are two different MIF versions? What format do I need to request they return, so that I can open the translated files, once translated? Thanks, Lise -- Save the earth. It's the only planet with chocolate. -- Save the earth.
