We have a client who sends us .ai files in batches for an ongoing project.
So far we've been working with now outdated workarounds, which nobody is willing to pay for as they do not add value to the translation. Export and import are very time consuming and prone to error, not to mention the dependency on third party tools as well as the not inexpensive Adobe Illustrator license.
A native Studio file type for .ai files would be the best way of directly processing these files saving a lot of time, money and nerves. Thank you.
