I'm a complete newby to Trados and we got directly the 2009 Edition. Now we have a client that sent us an XML file together with a SDLTradosTagEditor.ini File. I assume one was able to configure Tag Editor with this ini file to afterwards use the XML File.
But how does this work in 2009? Is there even a way to do that with the old ini file?

I was looking through the File Types options dialog, but could not find anything.

Any ideas?

Cheers from icy Switzerland.

Depends on what you shall deliver Jan 22, 2010

If your customer has simply ordered a translated XML file back, then go directly for Studio. Otherwise include the ini file in Tageditor (save the ini on your HDD and open the XML in Tageditor, when asked for the ini, say "I want to look for it" and show TE where it is located), then save the xml file as TTX. Use the TTX and translate it in Studio.

If you go directly for Studio, go to Tools - Options and click on File types. On the right side you will then see a list of file types already configured and buttons for open or create a new file type. Create a new file type, give it a name, then chose, that this will be a setting for XML files, import the ini send by your customer and save the created file. That's particularly all.

INI file does not contain case sensitive element descriptions Jan 22, 2010

Thanks for the quick replay.

Two points:
I figured there is no separate Tag Editor in Studio 2009?

But it worked with the Filetype Import of the ini file. Just unfortunately I'm getting this message: The imported INI file does not contain case sensitive element descriptions.

How do I make them case in-sensitive?

Indeed - Studio is ONE programm.
You can ignore the warning AFAIK - this is I think just a difference in handling of XML files by TE and Studio.
If you wish, you can also try to create a new SDLFILETYPE using the xml file itself instead of the ini. The way to do it is the same, but instead of importing the ini you import the XML. This way is not good in Studio, if you have more than one XML, because the import operation supports just one file. In that case it is better to create INI in Trados 2007...
