Using the Tag Settings Wizard for XML?

Hi all,

I have a very simple XML file, that basically consists of lines like this:
data key='AccessControlCodeError' value='Invalid code'/

(Each line starts and ends with angle brackets, which are not visible in the Proz forum.)

When I run the Tag Settings Wizard to create a custom .ini file, it suggests that the element "data" should be external.

Off course, this means that all text will be greyed and untranslatable in TagEditor.

When I tamper with the .ini file manually, I'm able to change the element type to "internal" or "placeholder", but the text still comes up as red in TagEditor, ie as tags rather than translatable text.

Obviously, I want simply the text to the right of value=' to come us as translatable.

Is there any way for me to configure this in the tag Settings Wizard???

TIA,

/Jan

tags and translatable text May 3, 2007

If it looks like this:
data key='AccessControlCodeError' value='Invalid code'
and data is the name of the element (the entire thing is and will be a tag; internal or external does not matter)
you need to (I think) add or define value as a translatable attribute.

You can do this in Tag Settings Manager (no need to upset the Wizard) in which you select the ini, hit ‘Properties’, hit ‘Elements’, then data, hit ‘Properties’, hit ‘Attributes’...
In the name field you may need to add value, & click ‘Add’. As far as I can see you’ll be required to check the check box for value...

That's it, or should be.

Haven’t done this ever myself, though; kind of curiuos if it’ll work.

Bye!
