Hello, I've been working on this a couple of hours:
Problem: I want to translate a custom XML file in Omegat.
I've tried installing the Okapi filters, but when I put the XML in the Source folder, I get an error.
Then I downloaded Rainbow and created a custom FPRM file, where I define all the attributes of my XML in ITS format.
But there's no way to import this custom definition into OmegaT.

Read through all the manuals, but no use.
I can't just strip the tags and work on the raw text, I need the file to stay in format.

Anyone ever succeeded at this before?

As it's provided by Okapi, not by OmegaT, it's documented by Okapi:
http://okapiframework.org/wiki/index.php?title=Okapi_Filters_Plugin_for_OmegaT


Starting in m24 you can specify a custom filter parameters file for each of the filter that supports options.

Use OmegaT's Options button in the File Filters dialog box to select whether you want to use the default settings, or a custom filter parameters file (.fprm extension) where you have stored your options.

Yes.

Thank you for the update Nov 29, 2017

Dear Didier, Thanks for your helpful comment.

I have a very basic XML file with only 3 attributes (reversed the >< so the code is visible):

>xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
>data xml:lang="de">
>article_content content1="EXAMPLE TEXT 1" content2="EXAMPLE TEXT 2"
typeid="1 (SHOULD NOT BE TRANSLATED)"/>
>/data>



Now I created the following FPRM file:
>?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
>its:rules xmlns:its="http://www.w3.org/2005/11/its"
xmlns:itsx="http://www.w3.org/2008/12/its-extensions"
version="1.0">
>its:translateRule selector="/data" translate="no"/>
>its:translateRule selector="/*/@xml:lang" translate="yes"/>
>its:translateRule selector="//article_content" translate="yes"/>
>its:translateRule selector="//*/@content1" translate="yes"/>
>its:translateRule selector="//*/@content2" translate="yes"/>
>its:translateRule selector="//*/@typeid" translate="no"/>
>its:withinTextRule selector="//typeid|/data" withinText="yes"/>
>/its:rules>


However, I still can't load the XML in OmegaT, even when I select the FPRM file.

When I try to load a project with my XML with the default Okapi filters, OmegaT tells me: unable to read project file.
When I load my custom FPRM file, OmegaT tells me it's unable to load the filter.

Any ideas?

There are a number of things to check.

I recommend using the Yahoo support group:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/OmegaT/info

In addition to being more suited for support, it is followed by Okapi people, in case their expertise is needed.
