Hi there,

Is it posible to translate IDNN-files in Studio 2019? I have 15 books in INDD-format to translate, so I am a bit desperate
Thanks in advance,
Ann Louise

Ask for IDML files instead, or use the Language Terminal May 4, 2019

Hello,

While INDD represents the extension given to all InDesign files created in the standard way in any version of InDesign, IDML (InDesign Markup) is an XML format which allows users of different versions of InDesign to open up the file without a problem.

Typically, IDML files are smaller than INDD files, since non-embedded images aren’t included. IDML is the standard format for translating InDesign files.

TWO OPTIONS

You can ask for IDML

Hello,

TWO OPTIONS

You can ask for IDML files instead, or convert the INDD files via the Language Terminal - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4GrkPtowpI&feature=youtu.be

Language Terminal’s free InDesign online converter allows you to work with InDesign in any CAT tool that handles MemoQ files (SDL Trados does). Free registration required.

Steps (once registered):

- In Language Terminal, drag and drop the INDD file in the InDesign conversion section.
- Select source and target language, then press convert.
- Once the conversion is completed, click on the file name to download a ZIP file.
- Extracting the ZIP file produces an MQXLZ (memoQ ZIP) file and a reference PDF.
- Change the MQXLZ extension to zip and unzip the file.
- Translate the extracted MQXLIFF file in SDL Trados.
- When done, add the translated and finalized MQXLIFF file to Language Terminal.
- The MQXLIFF file will be converted to a translated INDD file.

Note: SDL Trados can also translate MQXLZ packages directly, you can try skipping the “renaming and unzipping” step.
