Hey translators, can I convert a docx to an xlf?

This one client demands that we send them bilingual XLFs so they can extract TMs (we can send them TMX files but for some reason they just don't want them) and I'm having a hell of a time trying to figure out how to convert these "unclean" docx files. I've seen that it's possible in Rainbow, but Rainbow is so complicated and buggy that I cannot for the life of me figure out how this would be done -- I open it and it showers me with error messages. I see that this can be fixed by clicking on something called "launcher" but I see that exactly nowhere. I'm sorry if I sound crazy computer illiterate, but I'm rather new to this! I offer eternal gratefulness to anyone who can offer advice and free booze/food to anyone in my geographic location.
