G'day everyone

A client sent me two files, namely an xliff.wsxz file and an xliff.zip file. The zip file is a zip file that contains only an xliff file. The wsxz file is a zip file that contains a number of file, including a tmx file and two sdlxliff files. The client says that these files should be dealt with using Trados 2009. Can anyone please tell me how? Neither of the file have icons that look like Trados icons.

Thanks
Samuel

It's a package... Dec 5, 2012

.... just use Open package and select the wsxz. This will open a wizard that creates a project with the files. You then switch to the files view for the project and double click on the files to open them for translation. Once you're done you create a return package by right clicking on the project name and selecting create return package.

Regards

Paul

Can't see the package... Dec 5, 2012

The menu item "Open Package" lets me select sdlppx, sdlrpx and stppk files. There is no filter for "All files", so I can't select the wsxz file. Must I rename or convert the wsxz file first?

Thanks
Samuel

Not sure... Dec 5, 2012

Hi Samuel,

I am using 2011, so can't double check what you see, but this is what I would expect:


Certainly these WorldServer packages were supported in 2009 as well.

Regards

Paul

This is what I see:



Strange, the client said specifically "opened on SDL Trados Studio 2009". Perhaps the client doesn't know that he's using 2011? Perhaps there is some kind of update that I had missed?

Maybe this is the reason... Dec 5, 2012

.... see http://kb.sdl.com/kb/article?ArticleId=3077&source=article&c=12&cid=23

Looks like we introduced this with 2009 SP2 9.1.0.1264. What version are you running? I know you don't want to go to 2011 but there is no reason to not upgrade 2009 to the latest build.

Regards

Paul

Aah, yes, I'm using SP1. I'll upgrade to SP2, then.

Can't I just unzip it and translate it? Dec 5, 2012

The translatable content seems to be the sdlxliff files. Can't I just translate them and rezip the folder? Or does translating the package also update the TMX file in it?

Added: After having installed SP2, I tried to open the package again, but it complained about the lack of an xliff file, and when I tried to copy the xliff file that the lcient had sent separately into the wsxz file, it complained about corrupted source files, so I'm afraid the client will have to send me TTX files like he used to before, if he wants to have the work done.

I'm not sure if translating the sdlxliff files is a valid thing to do because the wsxz file itself appears to be broken, so I can't tell if any error messages I get from trying to open the hacked version in Trados is due to the hack or not.

You may as well get to the latest build.

I just followed the instructions in the KB you linked to... there was no mention of SP3 on it. I'll upgrade again.

Oh, before I do, can you confirm that SDLTradosStudio2009_SP3_2229.exe is the latest file to download?

SP3 would be worth trying as there have also been fixes in the cumulative updates to SP2, and also SP3. You are quite a way behind.

Trying to open a xliff.wsxz with Studio 2015 Aug 4, 2016

Hi,

I'm trying to open a xliff.wsxz file in Studio 2015 as part of my SDL Certification, using the sample files provided by SDL, but I cannot open it and have no option to select that file type. Any recommendations, please?

Thanks,
Elisa

How do you try to open it? You need to use the command "Open Package" as this is a package (a zipped container with SDLXLIFF files inside).
