The context is here: http://tinypic.com/r/33e55so/8

In the source column, this text is displayed as untranslatable tags. How the words "Agoura" and "Dermatology" can be translated? I have tried to convert these tags into inline tags, but MemoQ only found tags "city" and "specialty", whereas specialty name="something" it considers untranslatable.

The context image does not seem to be accessible. Can you repost in some other way?

Hi,
I can see it. It is just one line; I decided to post a pic, because Proz doesn't show tags.
Open the link and look for "city name" and "specialty name". Or try this link: http://oi57.tinypic.com/33e55so.jpg

Create an XML filter Jun 25, 2014

The process requires some steps, which can be easily mastered once you have played with it for a while.

Now, basically what you want to do is create an XML filter. To do so, use "Import with options" (not just "Import"), click "Change filter and configuration" and, in the "Document Import Settings" dialog box do the following:

1. Click the "Tags and Attributes" tab.
2. Click "Populate". You should see a list of tags (among which you should see "city" and "specialty".
3. Now click "city". You should see a list of attributes (among which "name"). Select the attribute, and enable the "Translatable" checkbox in the "Attribute settings" group. This makes the contents of attribute "name" translatable.
4. Do the same with any other tags/attributes you want as translatable.
5. Click away until the files are imported. You should get segments in the translation grid for the bits and pieces you want to translate.

This should do it. Since this takes a bit of time, you might want to save these settings by clicking the diskette icon in the "Filter configuration" line of the dialog. This way you can tweak the settings without creating them from scratch (simply choose the settings again in the "Filter configuration" drop-down list). Also, when you get more files from this same type in the future, you can easily reuse this filter with the new files and save a lot of time. Make sure you use a self-explanatory name when you save the settings, or you will be confused later on.

I hope this works for you!

Great. With this "Populate" option you can basically collect the structure of any file/set of files (you can apply the filter to all the files in one go) and tweak the translatables/non-translatables to pleasure.

Good luck!
