How to export Snagit text for translation/localization

I have Snagit 11.1.0. Is there a way to export text layers in a .snag file so that they can be translated/localized?  I need to export the native .snag file so that it's not flattened. The L10N vendor needs to extract the text (as can be done from Photoshop or Visio) so that the files can be translated.

For anyone finding this post via search...Snagit now has a solution for translating text in markup, as of Snagit 13.1 and later (released Jan 2017). The feature extracts text from image markup (callouts, text boxes, etc) into an XLIFF file. When you get the XLIFF file back from the person who does your localization, import it back into Snagit. Snagit duplicates the original images and replaces the source text with the translated text from your XLIFF file. Then Snagit alerts you to any files that may need attention or tweaking.

This tutorial walks through the feature in detail.
