Dear All,

I am translating an AuthorIt xml file in Trados Studio 2011. The client sent me the XML itself together with a SDLFILETYPE file including the settings. I have used this to add the AuthorIt file type in Project Settings/File types.

The problem is, that the Heading and Table texts do not appear as a normal translatable segment in my Trados Studio. When I choose the "All content" filter, they are there, but locked (greyed out) in the target column, so I cannot edit them.

I have translated xml files before, but I am quite new to AuthorIT xml format and I have never had a similar problem before.




Is it possible to translate these segments directly in Trados Studio 2011?

Shall I use TagEditor (it was not included in my freelance package, but this is a big project so I would purchase it)?

Is it something to see with setting up the project (I allowed source editing)?


Any kind of advice would be more than welcome.

Thank you, and have a nice day!

Anna

It is resolved now by adding a few lines to the Parser in Project Settings.
