Hello dear memoQ users!

I'm trying to import a bilingual xml file in memoQ (7.8.175) using the Multilingual XML filter.

In the Import rules tab:
memoQ xml import

I've clicked on 'loc' for the 'XPath for selected row' and I get /Proj[1]/File[1]/TextItem[1]/TranslationSet[1]/base[1]/@loc

In memoQ help (, they say to edit the 'Content XPath' box from:
//entry/string[@lang="de"] (where DE is the source text).

Following the same logic, I should edit my Content XPath for //TranslationSet/base/[@loc="en"]

I did the same for FR-CA: //TranslationSet/tran/[@loc="fr-CA"]

But it's not working. MemoQ tells me that I need to set-up at least one source language and one target language.

Any idea on this? The memoQ help doesn't explain how they came to the edit they suggest.

Many thanks!
