I simply cannot figure out what I am doing wrong here.

I have exported a Studio memory to TMX format, and when trying to import it to Wordfast I am told there is an invalid XML character.

How do I fix this without having to install e.g. Olifant or something like that?

I no longer even bother to try importing TMX directly into Wf. I open them in Olifant and save them as Wordfast TMs.

Once Olifant is installed, the entire process takes less than one minute.

Why not Olifant? Mar 14, 2012

If you know a better way to remove the invalid XML characters than Olifant, please let us know! Olifant is free and a mere 575 KB download: why wouldn't you want to install it, especially since you have been prepared to install SDL Trados Studio, which is at least 1000 times bigger?
