Hello,
I am quite new in Trados and xliff files.
Now I am translating an xliff file and in one translation unit I have the text to be translated and < br > in the middle.
What does < br > mean? Shall I leave it? Is it going to affect somehow the format of the final text?

Thank you in advance,

Núria

Xliff DTD Aug 26, 2008

Hi,

I have never translated an xliff file before but xliff is in XML ( a markup language ) and therefore, it should follow the structure or format set out in a DTD , Xliff's dtd is located here,
http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/xliff/documents/xliff.dtd

and there didn't seem to be a br element. I suspect that this is an html element, often written as br which stands for a line break. Probably it would not hurt to leave it as is.

Hope that helps.

Cam

It is a line break, similar to Shift-Enter in Word. And yes, it affects the format.
