I'm not that used to working with TagEditor, but I know how to load an ini-file and I think the purpose of the ini-file is to set rules for the tags, right?

Well, now I got a job from a client with an ini-file, but also with a dtd-file and two xsl-files. What's the purpose of the dtd-file and the xsl-files? What do I do with them?

Somebody help? It's kind of urgent.

Off the cuff... Dec 10, 2009

Maybe the ini file is for one of the xsl (xls?) files and the dtd is for the other... hard to tell. But try to open the xsl file in TagEditor. If TagEditor needs a settings file, it will ask for it. My off-the-cuff suggestion.

DTD and XSL Dec 10, 2009

Hi Annika,
the DTD file is in my opinion not that necessary if you have a valid INI. The XSL file will most probably used to display your translation in Internet Explorer, if you are working on an XML file. However, you haven't provided much information, so I may be exactly wrong.

ttx and xsl texts to work with, dtd and ini define settings? Dec 10, 2009

The xsl documents can be opened in TagEditor and they are in two different langauges - maybe it's just reference material.

It just seems odd to me, though, because I also got a normal ttx file with text to translate and when I run a word count on it I get the same analysis as the analysis file that was sent along with the other files. I never got a proper PO, just a Trados analysis (word count and hits in the memory).

It doesn't look like the text in the ttx file and the two xsl files is the same text.

Is the DTD just used to create an INI?

Sorry Dec 10, 2009

Hi Annika,
sorry, but I don't think I can help you much without proper knowledge of the background. Quite the opposite: I'm afraid of creating even more mess with my assumptions.
I just recommend that you ask your client what they actually want and to provide you with clear instructions on what to do. Asking your client is not a shame.

Thanks! Dec 10, 2009

Thanks for your help. I did ask the client, but it's late in the day and the project coordinator had gone home. The senior translator of the project in-house didn't really know what the xsl-files were supposed to be either...

I'm guessing I can ignore them for now since it seems it's only the ttx file I need to translate.

xsl and dtd Dec 10, 2009

Hello,
I think you can indeed ignore both files.
Xsl is a stylesheet file defining a layout for the xml file, whereas dtd is the document type definition file (defining the syntax of all the tags and their possible structure within the document).
For translating the xml in Tag Editor, all you need is the ini file. If you open the resulting xml file after the cleanup, you might get asked where the dtd file is, but you will not need it for the translation.
Best regards,
Ansgar
