I have a rather big translation job with deadline approaching soon.

Now, the extremely serious problem seems to be that when creating the project from Indesign idml files (CS5), Studio has deleted (or hidden deep underground) some content that is relevant.

In this project there are ab. one thousand cars with some table type technical information (engine, power, transmission etc) and free text of each.

Studio does not offer the technical information tables to translate, and when I save the target, they do not appear in Indesign (even in untranslated form). They clearly seem to be deleted by Studio - they can't be found with Indesing's search options. In original idml files they are there.

In Indesign the text in tables seem to have some kind of tags in them. When examining them with storyeditor in Indesign, it shows that all the deleted items are enclosed in "dataset" tags (there are additional tag pairs - at least "data" and "hi" - inside the dataset block).

You can delete those "tags" in Indesign, tediouly one by one retaining content (I don't know the name of this delete or conversion function in English as my Indesign is Finnish), but it is not an option in this case.

In Studio, there are some options in idml filter, but they don't seem to help, or can this problem be solved with some kind of entry in Document structure part of IDML filter?

My Studio is up-to-date
