TRADOS DTD settings files, what are they?

Bear with me, I am not actually familiar with TRADOS much. I am not a translator either. What I am is an XML DTD designer, and a new one at that. Our translator is attempting to use TRADOS TagEditor to read our files and it is unable to use our compound DTDs because it does not have the .ini file(s) it needs. Our translator has talked to TRADOS about it and they told him little about what this is, only that I needed to supply it to him.

I have been all over the TRADOS website and can find little about what the DTD settings file (ini) is or how to create one. Our current DTDs are compound, using public identifiers and a catalog file to reference each other. I am assuming that it is this structure that TRADOS is having issues with, but I do not know what to do about it.

Can anyone shed some light on this, or point me toward a resource that could help.

Thanks.

There is an extensive help on DTD settings. In Workbench: Options - Translation Memory Options - Tools - DTD Settings - Add - Help.

You can use DTD Settings Wizard to create the INI file.

Hello,

the ini file takes the information from a dtd file for translate a xml file with TagEditor.

Normally your translator can create the ini file with the DTD Wizard in TagEditor.

With kind regards

Hans
