I have tried changing the extension from .mxliff to .xliff. Studio opens it, but it gives me a validation error...

Maybe SDL could develop some kind of file type for mxliff?

BTW, the xliff files open no problem in MemoQ... icon_smile.gif

Any ideas? Thanks!

I had a similar dilemma Jan 8, 2015

and I gave up and now I am translating a big mxliff file in Memsource Editor.

You can't handle an mxliff file well in Studio, especially if some segments are already pretranslated (they will not be imported).

If it works for you in MemoQ, use MemoQ.

I had to go back to Memsource, because I had to use the online TM.

There is a plugin for Studio that will allow you to use the Memsource server as a TM provider, but it works only with some Memsource licenses.

tried... Jan 8, 2015

the file is so big that both the offline editor and the online editor are really slow... impossible to use... MemoQ handles it very well, and imports the pretranslated segments, but not the segments statuses...

you don't find the online editor slow?

Also, the fact you can't program the key combination is very frustrating...

Does the validation error prevent you translating? Jan 8, 2015

What is the message exactly? It might just be that it's an information message and doesn't cause a problem at all.

You may also find that adding the *.mxliff wildcard expression to the XLIFF filetype (not the SDLXLIFF filetype) will be easier as you then won't have to edit every file. Studio will just open the *.mxliff files using the standard XLIFF filetype.

You problem here... Jan 25, 2015

... is most likely that we have an additional option for XLIFF most tools do not and unfortunately it's the default. In the filetype options go to Settings and check "Do not store segmentation information in the translated file". My guess is memsource has no idea how to handle this information and doesn't like it.
