Hello ForeignDesk fans,

Could anybody please tell me how to set up a project in ForeignDesk to translate an XML file?

I get the feeling that this is done in the FDPA module, Build tab. But that is all my intuition tells me, and I need the hard facts. I would really like to learn more about ForeignDesk, it's a localization tool I enjoy.

Ideally, I would also like to know how to change back the FD project to XML to deliver it to my client.

Thanks for your help. And if anyone would like to take care of these technical steps for me for a reasonable fee please contact me in private.


PS. I'm running FD 5.7.1
