I have received some files from a client and I am still busy with something else and haven't had time to analyze the issue, so I was wondering if anyone knows if I can process inc files (I think they are include files for a web page) with Trados (preferably 6.5).
Thank you.

Quoting the FileFormatsRef_T65 Dec 14, 2005

(you can download it here - and it is recommended to do so, as this add describes ho to process such files)

OVERVIEW
You can translate HTML, XML and SGML files directly with a minimum of preparation using Translator’s Workbench and TagEditor. This chapter describes the HTML, XML and SGML
translation process.
It explains the role of the DTD settings file in processing these file types and shows you how to use the DTD Settings Wizard to create and edit DTD settings files.
Supported ML File Formats
TRADOS provides explicit support for the following ML file formats:

  • HTML documents (HTM, HTML) up to version 4.0, including any derivatives such as Active Server Pages (ASP), Active Server.NET (ASP.NET), ASP.NET (ASPX and ASCX), Java Server
    Pages (JSP), Include files (INC) and PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP) files.
  • SGML documents (SGM, SGML).
  • XML documents (XML, XSL). XML files with unrecognized file extensions are also supported as long as the file includes the XML declaration, (?xml version='1.0'...?), and the extension
    does not conflict with file extensions for other supported file types.


Kind regards
Jerzy

Why not make some of the files available to us, then we'll have a look? A yousendit.com URL addressed to yourself should do nicely.

Hi Elvira,

A quick fix to .inc files is often to rename the extention to .htm, using any freeware batch renamer.

Most of the time it works, provided you translate them in TagEditor.

After the cleanup, simply rename back to *.inc.

The "proper" way though, is to read through the material posted by Jerzy above...

Thanks, it works in TagEditor Dec 14, 2005

Sorry for not researching myself, but I had to hand in a school report and I didn't have time to search myself and I wanted to make sure I don't have any problems with the files, as the deadline I have received is rather short.
I could open the files in TagEditor without any problem. I actually thought I would have to convert them to html. Thank you all for your timely replies and patience.
