...on not disabling HTML in forum posts, half of Alice's post didn't make it. But there are ways to get it. Here is Alice's full post:
I've just been sent my first XML file to translate with Wordfast. I suspect that it ultimately came from InDesign, since this was an alternative to a TTX. However the XML info at the top is very Microsoftey:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?glt;
<w:wordDocument xmlns:w="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/word/2003/wordml" xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml" xmlns:w10="urn:schemas-microsoft-com: office:word" xmlns:sl="http://schemas.microsoft.com/schemaLibrary/2003/core"
and then it gets all binary looking. No sign of a DTD.
So I'm wondering if this is really an XML document at all. I did download +Tools and read the manual and the articles at the Wordfast website, but my first attempt with Extract gives me an alphabetical list, which is not quite what is wanted.
Word of course understands the document, but I'm not sure what sort of code I would create if I just translated right in Wordfast + Microsoft Word as usual.
Any advice appreciated.
... and even if you encode the XML, ProZ.com's forums still turn some of it into smileys and all you can do to prevent it is to add spaces into the XML code.
