If you want to learn the basics of XML translation, I just wrote and uploaded an article on the subject.

You can find it at
XML translation

Let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Sylvain

Corrected URL Jun 24, 2005



That URL won't work in my browser. Try this one:
http://www.your-translations.com/translators_knowledge/
and the click the "XML translation/" link and the next link too.

I'll read the article when I get back from holidays, but it looks promising in a single glance.

good, clear beginners articles on HTML and XML Jun 24, 2005

Hello Sylvain,

I've just read through your HTML and XML articles on your web site. After having taught SGML to technical writers and translators for 2 years and XML implementation to test teams and technical writers over the past few years, I found your 2 articles to be very well adapted to audiences that are not highly technical. You mention in your articles that you tend to oversimply things, and that is very good because so much what is written tends to assume that the reader already knows something about it.

I'll definitely point novice readers to your articles on these topics.

Thanks Jef Jun 25, 2005

Always nice to hear.

I am compiling a list of websites offering tutorials on these subjects. If you have resources to recommend or if you see improvments to be made, drop me a note.

Cheers,
Sylvain

Hy Sylver,

Is there a straightforward way to convert a pdf file to xml, translate it as a tagged document (I am using Wordfast and tagging seems to be OK, at least with html), and convert it back to pdf? I have Acrobat to save files as xml 1.0, but did not find a way to convert it back. What I am looking for is a simple solution for dummies...

Many thanks in advance,

Cheers,

Lev

Not that I am aware of. There is probably a techie way to mess around with it but we are definitely not talking about "for dummies" here.

PDF is a pain. It was never meant to be translated in the first place, nor even edited.

I think that if you really have to work with PDFs, the best way to go is a good OCR program. You can find a lot of posts related to PDF on Proz.
