Dear all,

Is it possible to translate XML files using Poedit?

If not, can I import it in Word, translate it and export the translation back to an XML file?

Thanks in advance!

Nicole

Try the Okapi Framework Apr 10, 2013

There are lots of different ways (especially if you happen to be a programmer, or if you ask one). Many CAT tools can work with XML directly (XLIFF is XML), but if you, for some reason, prefer POedit, you would probably need some kind of failsafe workflow, for preparing the PO files and merging the translation back into the original file.

I would really recommend trying the Rainbow app from the Okapi Framework. It has a feature to create "Translation Kits", that can easily be Post-processed by the same app, after translation. Rainbow has a few pre-defined import filters for XML, that you can customise, or you could use the Generic XML filter.

The Okapi Framework has many other great tools as well, for segmenting, quality checking etc.
