Kevin: When I absolutely have to provide someone with an RTF or Word version of a Frame manual, I use BCL easyConverter Desktop (Word Version) (http://www.pdfonline.com/easyconverter/). It's $20 and produces better output than the Frame12 to RTF option - although it's definitely not perfect.

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
