You need to customize the XML
Mar 12, 2016
You can just open the XML file in Studio, but you will probably see more than just the translatable content.
XML is a standard, and this means that you may have hundreds of different flavours of XML files. These files often come as an export from a Content Management System or a Publishing or Authoring System and they usually contain not just what you need to translate, but additional information of technical nature.
This means that you need to analyze the structure of the XML file to find out which elements need to be translated and which ones not. Hopefully, the client will be able to assist you in doing this. You then need to create a "custom XML" filetype (based on the default AnyXML in Studio) and adapt it, so that Studio only shows you the translatable content.
