Hello!

Is there anyway we could have a filter created to translate Mindjet files?

Here is the software's website: http://www.mindjet.com/

They have a 30-day trial version that developers could use to create and test the filters.

Thanks!

Which file format? Jun 4, 2012

Dear John,

What is the file format generated by Mindjet? XML, HTML,....?

If you have a sample file, you can send it to me in private.

Kind regards,
Yasmin

Dear Yasmin,

It is a proprietary format with the extension .mmap

I hope you can add this filter soon. I don't know of any other tool that can handle these files, gives Wordfast one more USP!

Best,

Dear John,

Many thanks for sending me sample files.

I have managed to find a way for translating such MMAP files of Mindjet MindManager Professional.

- The MMAP file is a compressed archive. When I changed its extension to ZIP, I was able to Extract its contents. I copied Document.xml to translate it.

- If you open Document.xml in a text editor, you will see that the translatable parts are identified in the attribute: PlainText.

- To translate Document.xml in Wordfast Pro, I just created a very simple two-line *.properties file:
paragraphPrefix.0=PlainText="
paragraphSuffix.0="

- To open the XML file in Wordfast Pro, go to Edit menu > Preferences > Formats > New > Text-based Filter.

- Click the [...] button to locate the (*.properties) file. Make sure the "Extension" textbox shows *.xml and save the settings (OK).

- Now, you should be able to open the XML file in WFP (File menu > Open file).

- After translation, replace the original Document.xml with the translated one, zip the files again, and restore the MMAP extension.

- Now, you should be able to open the translated MMAP in Mindjet MindManager Professional.

Here is a quick demonstration: http://www.screencast.com/t/O4VeUK1Qfj0q

I hope this helps.

I think it would be much easier if the Mindjet MindManager developers add a two-way option to the application itself for importing and exporting back the XML file.

Kind regards,
Yasmin Moslem
