I just receive .sgml (wordPerfect) files to translate. They ask me to compile a DTD, but I can't, I don't have any .dtd file on my computer.

How do I create a DTD file so I can have access to the file?

Thank you for your help!

Use Tag settings wizzard Mar 5, 2008

Consult the File Format Reference Guide (a PDF-file, installed on your computer together with SDL Trados). A detailed description of how to do that is enclosed there, inculding screen shots, so I will not repeat all this here.

In a nutshell: Go to Workbench, Options, Translation Memory Options, tab Tools and click Tag settings (or in Tageditor, Tools, Tagsettings). Click there on New, the Wizzard will start. Chose what you want to do, and when you come to a screen with a button "Import", import the file you've were provided by the customer. Follow all steps and you're done.
