Adobe InDesign Markup Language (IDML) documents

Fine-tune the settings that tell memoQ how to import Adobe InDesign Markup Language (IDML) documents.

memoQ imports ICML and INDD, too: The INDD format is Adobe's native InDesign format. The ICML format is a subset of Adobe's IDML file format specification.

Need Language Terminal to import INDD: If you import an INDD document, memoQ automatically turns to Language Terminal to convert it. If you don't have Language Terminal profile, or it isn't saved in memoQ, the import won't work. To track the import: In Project home, choose Translations. Click the InDesign import/export tab.

To learn more about importing documents with options: See the Document import settings main page. Or, see the page about the Document import options window.

How to get here

  1. Start importing an Adobe InDesign Markup Language (IDML) or an Adobe InDesign Document (INDD) with options.
  2. In the Document import options window, select the INX documents, and click Change filter and configuration.
  3. The Document import settings window appears with the Adobe InDesign Markup Language (IDML) settings.


What can you do?
