Dear colleagues,
I have searched the fora high and low but could not find any useful tip.
I have a number of xml files to translate with TagEditor (SDL Trados 7.5).
The client supplied the dtd file from which I obtained the corresponding ini file by using the appropriate Wizard (default settings).
TagEditor opens the xml files but does not show any translatable text. All I see is a number of tags. The weird thing is that the file is previewed correctly, i.e. I can see the strings I have to translate in the Preview window but not in the Edit window.

I guess I have to edit tag settings but I do not know how to do it.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

Cosetta

translatable attributes Jun 20, 2007

The text may be included in translatable attributes.
Can you see the text to be translated inside the body of the tags with COMPLETE TAG TEXT selected?

Ciao Stefano,
yes, I can see the translatable text inside the tag (now you told me).
How can I get it out of there??

Thanks

translation of translatable attributes Jun 20, 2007

In Tag Editor select Tools/Tag Settings, highlight the name of the setting, then click on Properties, select the Element tab, highlight the name of the Tag with translatable attributes, click on Properties, then on the Attributes tab, tick the box of the translatable attribute.
If you have more than one tag with translatable attributes, repeat the procedure.
Click on OK until you close the Tag Setting Manager.
Then open again the XML files in Tag Editor, creating new TTX files.
Now the text should be visible.

Ciao
Stefano
