Disable BOM and missing < target/>
Thread poster: ropoman

Sep 21, 2013


We get our translation in XLIFF Format and have problems reading the file into our CMS.
The are two problems:

1. The XML contains a BOM at the beginning of the file. The Java CMS is using Xerces to parse and complains about an invalid prologue. Can I disable writing the BOM?
2. When the source of the translation is only a blank, the output file contains a translation unit with the < target/ > missing. The XLIFF standard says that there are pairs. Is there a workaround?
