Dear all,

I need to make a word count/cost estimation for the translation of a (huge) .xml file in Trados.

As the client doesn't want to pay for the code, I will have to remove it from the word count.

Does anyone know how to do that?

Not sure about your file, but this works very well to quickly strip out HTML code:

Define an XML filetype Oct 22, 2011

To be on the safe side, you will need to define a new filetype for your XML.

The process is roughly as follows:
1. Exclude all untranslatable sections from display in the Editor (i.e. also from the analysis)
2. Define all translatable content between the respective XML tags as translatable (i.e. include it in the analysis)
3. Use the following regular expression to display embedded HTML code as tags: </?[a-z][a-z0-9]*[^><]*>

A few examples to explain the process Oct 22, 2011

Hi Floriane & Yuri,

To do this you need to only parse the translatable text into Studio. This is because it is the text in the editor that will be counted. To do this, if you are seeing code snippets in the editor, you need to create a custom filetype.

This is not always too tricky... depends on the xml file you have... but there are some examples below that might shed some light on this topic for you if you are unfamilar with this process.
