XML files can be handled in Wordfast Pro as follows:

  • You need first to have/create a rules (*.properties) file.
  • Go to Edit menu > Preferences > Formats > New > Text-based Filter.
  • Use the [...] button to browser for the "Conversion rules" (*.properties) file.
  • Make sure the "Extension" textbox shows *.xml and save the settings (OK).
  • You can change the filter name later.
  • Now, you should be able to open the XML file in WFP (File menu > Open file).

This tutorial illustrates how to prepare a "conversion rules" (*.properties) file to handle XML files.

For practice, you can download example files.
