Hello community,

Quick question regarding .xml and .xlif-files:

One of my clients asked me to provide him an ideal structure of xml-files to work with it in Trados 2007 (the company insists to use 2007).

Hello community,

Quick question regarding .xml and .xlif-files:

One of my clients asked me to provide him an ideal structure of xml-files to work with it in Trados 2007 (the company insists to use 2007). So, are there any specifications, beside the standard xml-blabla I could communicate him? It's mostly for Trados to interpret the files correctly without corrupting the translated files. I only remember that Trados got problems interpreting xml-files under certain circumstances: for example, I am not able to fade out html-tags when they are outside CDATA-tags, or certain line brake tags will not be correctly written when saving the translated files - so any xml-expert out there? Is there anybody who could describe me his/her ideal xml-structure? BTW: What is the advantage of xml?

Sorry for all the questions and thanks in advance for your support (-:
