SDLXLIFF (SDL Trados Studio XLIFF) files

memoQ imports SDLXLIFF files, created by SDL Trados Studio 2009 and higher.

SDLXLIFF files are XLIFF files, but with extra contents that are used by SDL Trados Studio only.

Use this window to tell memoQ how to import an SDLXLIFF file. memoQ can take the following information from an SDLXLIFF file:

  • States - segment statuses from Trados Studio are mapped to segment statuses in memoQ
  • Additional comments - comments in Trados Studio
  • Tracked changes - Trados Studio documents may contain tracked changes (similarly to Microsoft Word or memoQ documents). memoQ can import and export the markup.
  • Translation quality assessment - Structured feedback in Trados Studio may be imported as Linguistic Quality Assurance (LQA) feedback (but only if you import SDLXLIFF documents as part of Trados Studio packages)
