In later versions of FrameMaker, there are two MIF versions you can choose: MIF #.#, where #.# is the current FrameMaker version you are saving from and MIF 7.0, which is the pre-unicode version of MIF. You don't want MIF 7.0, you want the current version. So, if they are using FrameMaker 12, they would save as MIF 12.0.

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.
