Hello,I am trying to use the Transit plugin in Trados Studio 2017, but it doesn't work as I would love to.
I can open the Transit package, but when I try to open the file that's in the package I see an error message "Windows cannot open this type of file (.FRA)":
On my computer, I see in the folder of this project 3 folders and one file:
"de-DE" with two files: XYZ_docx.FRA and XYZ_docx.DEU
"fr-FR" with a file ending on XYZ_docx.FRA
I guess that the trouble comes from the files with the language codes in their names (docx.FRA and docx.DEU) as these are not recognized as a Word file. But what can I do to resolve this problem?
When opening the Transit package, I had to select a template. I selected "Default", is this correct?
Thanks a lot for your help!

This isn't a problem. They are not Word files and are not supposed t be opened in Word. If they were DOCX files originally (and I can see they were) only Star Transit will be able to convert them back.

The template is there to provide settings for your project. Only you will know whether the default is correct or not. If you have set up the default template to use the Transit filetypes, and with the appropriate resources you wish to use on this project, then it is probably correct. But many users probably create templates for different customers with different resources, so for them the default may not be correct.
I hope you see what I mean... this isn't really a question we can answer.
Thanks a lot for your answer.
I found the reason: you have to go to "Project Settings", then "File Types", then activate "Transit bilingual documents"!!! Now the files are recognized as Transit files
