In memoQ, there is this useful tool that let's you define words, like all words in [square brackets], as uneditable tags. It's really useful in gaming translations with a lot of variables in the text. Is there a similar tool in Trados? It's possible I'll have to switch to Trados to work with a certain client.

Embedded content processors Aug 8, 2017

Trados Studio has embedded content processors, which work with XML files and Excel files.

The implementation, though, is not quite straightforward and intuitive—which is typical of SDL, I’d say. I find memoQ’s approach much more usable and practical.
