Studio 2011 SP2R - Adding bold tags to MIFs
Thread poster: PFH
Jan 25, 2013

We have a project consisting of FrameMaker 10 docs which have been processed through Studio 2011. One of the issues we encountered is strange behaviour when adding formatting tags like bold tags to parts of the translated segments. When we build out the MIFs, in some places the bold text appears in the MIF file but in other places, text which has clearly been bolded in the Studio editor (and where the CF tags are visible) does not appear bold in the MIF. It appears that the formatting is not being written out to the MIF in some cases.

This is a pretty big problem as some languages (German in particular) need to bold UI options etc..

Has anyone experienced similar, and is there a fix for this problem? Seemed to be straighforward in Trados 2007 and worked without problems, but not so in Studio 2011 with newer MIFs.

Can we see one? Jan 28, 2013

Hi Paul,

If you have a MIF file and the translated sdlxliff that won't convert correctly it would be useful to see them. If you can share please send it to me at
