Hi Edwin, I work with SDL on a regular basis. I am copying this reply and your messaage to an engineer friend of mine inside SDL in Ireland. I am sure he will either be able to provide the answer or point me to someone who does. It will be Monday or Tuesday before I hear back from him though.
Meanwhile, which version of Trados are you using?

I am trying to translate some documents into French with SDL Edit, which allows *.mif files as input. When I start a new translation, I select the *.mif file, and then it creates four intermediarary *.itd files (one for the text, one for x-refs, one for index entries, one for variables and number formats. My question is that when I translate these four documents and reexport them to mif, I end up with four documents. Is there some way to re-import my translated index entries, variable entries, and numbering formats back into my main document? thanks, Edwin Tudsbery http://www.frameusers.com/ for more resources and info.
