I have two huge XML files (800,000 words in each one) that I need to use as reference.

I have tried to align them with WinAlign 7.1 but the program crashes.

Any suggestion on how to do it?

I guess they are both more stable for handling huge files..

Split files in smaller chunks Dec 12, 2006

Had the same problem with a large XML file the other day.
The solution I went for was to split up the document (in Notepad or XML-Editor), but this, of course, means that you have to be familiar with manipulating source Xml code.

Disappointing Trados behaviour - mind you, WinAlign had problems aligning a - perfectly edited XML-file - 100000W file. I spilt it up in three parts and it worked, so in your case you may need to split up your doc in ca. 20 smaller files (35000W/file) - good luck.

Just suggesting: what happens, if you align the corresponding ttx -files?
