If you mean TMX, you can use the free TMX Validator from Maxprograms. It will point you to places which do not conform with the TMX standard.

You can fix the TMX file in a good text editor or an XML editor.

Piotr

Hi , Piotr: in this context I would like to ask you if TMX validator locates the errors or if it only shows that the memory is not valid? I remember to have used this application many years ago, but it only indicated that the memory was not valid.

I also remember using TMXValidator many years ago, but Maxprograms didn't exist then (as far as I can tell), so it must have been a tool from a different vendor.

TMXValidator from Maxprograms will point you to the line where the error is.

Here is the link: http://www.maxprograms.com/products/tmxvalidator.html

Caveat: It make take time with very large TMX files.

Regards,

Piotr

Thanks a lot, Piotr. I guess you are right; maybe it was a LISA or another vendor tool. Have a nice time.
