If the XML type is not known or undefined, then you can use the file type Any XML as default. Once you have translated a couple of files, check that your target text is properly embedded in the XML formatting code.
I have only one huge file, about 100K words, this is the reason I want to make sure in advance that I am doing everything right.
If your Trados editor is not showing the tags correctly, then you need to change the parser. There are various ways of doing this which are a bit beyond the scope here, but which are basically described in the Trados Help under File types. Your client may be able to supply you with an .INI file which defines the XML and this may save you quite a lot of work.
I will do that and ask the client for more details and the INI file.
