wrong forum Mar 21

You posted this in the PEMT forum, which is why nobody answered. You should move it to the OmegaT forum.

suggestions Mar 24

I don't know the answer, but try these, if you haven't already:

Have you ticked "xliff" in the File Filters in OmegaT? Options > File Filters > XLIFF. There is also a button EDIT for refinements.

Okapi Rainbow Help: http://okapi.sourceforge.net/Release/Shared/Help/tutorial_02.htm

Search for XLIFF on this forum - the issue has been discussed rather often.

Search and/or ask your question on the OmegaT Yahoo list, which has more traffic and is read also by Okapi developers: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/OmegaT/conversations/messages

Check whether the plugin is really installed Mar 24

What exactly happens?

I have installed the Okabi plugin but still no luck.

When you go to Options > File Filters, do you see filters with (Okapi) in the name?

If yes, make sure you uncheck the standard XLIFF filter, and you check the XLIFF (Okapi) one.

Can someone help, please? Thanks in advance!

This is the best advice.
