Do you know if it is acceptable in development with the translated xml files that displayed as one line in notepad, but displayed as same structure with English one in browser?
Meicy, from a strictly technical point of view this is acceptable. However, if all the xml is in one line, this can cause serious problems for the xml parser that has to read your translated xml file - especially if the xml file is that big.
You can try to open the cleaned, translated xml file again in tag editor - you will notice, that the translated xml file will take much longer to open. It can even be that you cannot open the file at all or will have to wait a few hours...
Regarding the possilbe (and actually most likely) problems, it is not acceptable, from a client's perspective, - especially not as it was your faulty setting that caused the problem.
However, I'm wondering why clients who give you a 120,000 word xml job for translation do not care about the translation process and let you alone with creating the necessary ini file on your end - you are obviously not an xml specialist but a translator. This is an absolutely irresponsible attitude of your client's project manager.
I think it might be acceptable in the build as long as xml can be displayed properly in brower, but I don't have enough technical backgroud to ensure it. Any comments are welcomed!
Don't mix things here. The parser of the software on client side will have to read your xml - and not your Internet Explorer.
