I'm a developer. I have created an .sdlxliff file by myself, based on the XLIFF 1.2 Standard. (Source: It's essentially an .xml file, so I save it as xml with the extension ".sdlxliff". But I can't open it with Trados 2015, even if I created a same file as the example in the forementioned Wikipedia page. It keeps telling me Trados doesn't support such file type. Can anyone tell me why it doesn't work? Might need technical support on this.
