Does anyone happen to be familiar with how to adjust Trados so that it can read an XML file created by Lectora? Lectora is a proprietary software used in the creation of Computer-Based Trainings and its XML files contain tags that Trados rejects, making translation of the files impossible.

Any help would be extremely appreciated!
Thank you,
Randall Stieghorst

XML Schema or DTD required Nov 5, 2004

Hi Randall,
First of all, I have moved this to the Trados Support forum.

By their very nature, XML files are customised to the author's specification (simply speaking, the tags in an XML file are defined by the author) - hence, creating a default settings file is basically impossible.

To use TagEditor on any XML file, you will need to create a specific .ini file, using the DTD Settings Wizard on the basis of the DTD file or XML schema which the author of the XML file should be able to provide.

HTH, Ralf
