I've received a file with extension .xml with mediawiki content to translate. I'd like to know if there is a way to do it with Trados 2007 or DSL TRados 2009 or if there is any other editor that facilitates this task.

Many thanks!

If it's XML then you... Jun 27, 2013

... should be able to do this with Trados 2007 or Studio 2009. Ideally you'd create an XML filetype to match the contents of the file you received. In Trados 2007 this would be an INI file, and in Studio 2009 it would be an sdlfiletype.

Go to the product help in Studio 2009 and search for XML where you'll find some help on how to do this.

The default XML may extract the text anyway, but if you have translatable content in attributes, or in CDATA for example then custom settings is really the way to go.
