Hello!

Every time I download a xliff file from a client's platform to be imported in Studio, I get this message:

XLIFF validation error on line 1offset 49: The value 'YML' is not valid according to any of the memberTypes of union.

What does it mean?

The platform where I export the file is called Transifex.

I also know that when I translate the file with Studio and try to re import, it does not work well.

Any idea?

Francesco

It means that your XLIFF file is not well-formed Oct 30, 2015

This XLIFF file is either corrupt or does not adhere to the specifications.
In which program has this XLIFF file been created? Which XLIFF version is it?

Did you check with your client whether it is meant to be compatible with Studio?

Another source of error might be the download, which might corrupt the file. I have quite often experienced that XML files are corrupted when being sent as mail attachment and I suggest that they always be zipped before they are transferred. Download should work better though, but maybe the download process did not terminate correctly.

I suggest you ask your client to send you the XLF file zipped, any you then try to open the unzipped file in Studio. If it works, you know that the problem is related to the transport. If it does not, then it is a problem of compatibility.

Thank you, Water.

The client does not send me the file, I extract it from Transifex. In theory I should be able to extract the file from Transifex, translated it and import it back.

It never works well, I suspect because of the warning.

I wonder if there is something in my Studio settings that should be changed.


Is there a way to FIX the xliff file and eliminate the warning?

Thanks for your input, very appreciated.

Regards,

Francesco

Test the compatibility without downloading Oct 31, 2015

Francesco

I know that you are downloading the file and because we don't know whether the error is introduced by the download or due to an incompatibility, I suggested that you ask for the file to be sent to you in zipped format so that you can find out whether it works then with Studio.

If it works, you will know that the error is introduced by the download, if not it is incompatible with Studio. There is not much you can change in the XLF settings in Studio.

It would also be important to know which version of XLIFF these files are. Is it XLIFF version 1.2 or 2.0? Studio does not yet support XLIFF 2.0.
