Hi everybody,

I am trying to open an xml file for translation purposes. I have not got a DTD file and I will not get one, either. I have tried opening it with a schema, I have tried opening it with rules (under file type), I have tried everything under the sun (that I found in the Internet). Whatever I do, in project view the file always has 0 words. I only get the start and end tags when I open the file.

When I look at it in an xml editor, everything is fine.

Where did I go off the track and how can I remedy it?

I was able to open the file in WordFast Pro, but it is (despite filtering) still chock full of tags and the like.

There are two types of lines in the file:

< DynamicLabel ="Move [tags] Mother" Translation="Move [tags] Mother" / >

< StaticLabel ="Father" Translation="Father" / >

Only the second instance of 'Move [tags] Mother' or 'Father' needs to be translated (i.e. everything after Translation=" without the tags for embedded content and before "), anything else may not be touched.

What also bothers me is that the parts that need to be ignored AND the parts that need to be translated are both between the same delimiters < and >.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Hi Ulrike,

Did you end up finding a solution? I'm having the same problem right now.

Best,

Not really a Solution but a Workaround Mar 1, 2017

I finally figured that there are numerous types of editors and eventually found one that only showed the text (beats me, how that works; I am only a user) and took it from there. In my case it was LanguageEditor. Copy&Paste is your friend...

Thanks! Mar 1, 2017

Thanks! I'll try that if the client can't come up with a schema/DTD file.
