How to best view a Trados Studio Analysis report file in XML format ?

Hi everyone,

I received a Trados Studio Analysis file from a customer of mine.
Usually I receive Analysis report files as Excel files, but this time they sent me an XML file.
As you know, XML files are not meant for 'the human eye', rather they are primarily used as input for (other) software.

I googled a bit and found this free website that takes my Trados XML file as input and shows it in a readable format.
http://www.lsp.net/cat-online-weighting.php

I'm good for now, but I was wondering how you handle such XML analysis files?
Is it possible to import them directly in Studio for viewing or do you perhaps use another stand-alone software to comfortably view them?

Kind regards

I am not familiar with that tool you refer to, and it didn't work for the xml that I tried.

When Studio analyses a project, the analysis xml's is/are stored in the project subfolder named "reports."
Xml files can be opened with Excel (right-click and choose open with...) "as xml table" (this is preselected under "select how you would like to open this file"), just click OK. Let excel create a table based on the xml source data.

This might not be the easiest display, but I think it works.

Hi Lianne,
I already tried that and Excel indeed does its best to format and show the table but it is not really practical/useable.
One would expect that Studio itself can import, format and display its own generated XML file ...

Thanks a lot for your suggestion though!

Kind regards

TO3000 Sep 21, 2016

I use Studio xml reports in TO3000.
However, it's not 100% compatible, as I mentioned in blog post I wrote on this topic:

Emma, thanks for your reply.
I will have a look at TO3000. Too bad though it is not 100% compatible with the Studio Analysis files.

BTW. It was your blog that led me to the 'CAT weighting tool' yesterday ..
Thank you!

Hi Lianne,
Just wondering if your test with TO3000 importing Studio XML analysis file was succesful ...

Copy xml to Reports folder of some other project and change filename Jul 26

Hi,

When I'm getting analysis(1) in xml format from SDL Studio, I create some new project (or I take one existing) and make analyse. Next, I go to the Reprots folder of my project. There is the xml file with analyse(2) I made. So I copy file(1) to the folder, remove file(2) and change file(1) name to name of file(2). In this new project Studio shows the analyse I got(1).

I know, it may seem stupid but it works

What seems stupid to me is that the PM sent you an xml report in the first place rather than an Excel or html report.
