Can xml files be translated in SDLX? If so, where, how? When I open SDLX, xml files don't appear in the list of translatable files.

Thanks!

Sure you can Jan 31, 2008

Open SDLX. Click on the Project tab and select Import files into a new project. A list of document types opens...scroll down to select xlm files and continue to import the files into a new project.

Hope that helps.

Thanks! Is there something like tag settings? Jan 31, 2008

Thanks, Kathi,

I managed to open the file (create an ITD), but now all I see is a red vertical line where each translation unit should be. When I opened this file in TagEditor I had to create a new tag settings file, as it has this unusual structure. Is there something similar I can do in SDLX (I'm using SDLX 2007) to properly see the contents of the file?

Thanks again,

Nora

I had to create an XML filter first Jan 31, 2008

Hi Kathi,

Thanks again for your help. I finally figured out what I was missing: when selecting the xml file type, I didn't have an XML filter and that was causing the file to fail to open correctly.

I created the XML filter/analysis file using my file, imported the XML file into a project, and everything is working.

I'm happy that I won't have to deal with all the tags in TagEditor!
