Hello,

I don't know if this has been solved before since there seem to be many issues with xml files, but my head is about to explode with this one.

The thing is that when opening the file with Notepad ++ I can see that there are around 2.000 words. But then, when I try to open it with Trados I can only see 5 (the 5 words that show up when you double-click on the file and it opens up in Firefox).

I really don't know what to do anymore for Trados to correctly identify the file type and let me access the file and get the proper word count.

Can anyone help me with this matter? Any hints would be greatly appreciated icon_smile.gif.

XML files often require... Aug 6, 2013

... a custom filetype. Perhaps the default XML filetype simply doesn't pick up the translatable text because it hasn't been prepared in a way to make this easy to handle.

If you can share the file with me I'll happily take a look for you?

Regards
