LaTeX from Scientific Workplace

I am using this program "Scientific Workplace", which seems to have a proprietary-non-standard version of LaTeX, i.e., a version that cannot be readily interpreted by standard Latex readers; I uploaded a .tex workplace file to someone who has a LaTeX reader, and no matter how he tried to open it, all he got was a garbled mess.

Does anyone know how to go around this, i.e., does anyone now if there is a special way of saving a file in Sci Workplace, or some other trick so that a Sci. Workplace-version Latex file can be read by standard LaTeX readers?
