So, I'm trying to get Studio to accept TMX files created with my own aligner and TMX generation tool.
The TMX files pass lisa.org's TMX validator and work as intended in Trados 7 and Trados 8. I'm pretty sure they are kosher, although there might be some subtle problem with my TMX implementation. Studio doesn't complain about the files and imports the text correctly, but it applies the userid of the Studio user and the current system time instead of the userid and creation time specified in the TMX TUs, and it completely ignores the "Note" text field. At this point, I think this is a Studio bug.

After a horribly lengthy troubleshooting session, I found a workaround: if I change the o-tmf (original format) property to what Workbench uses in its TMX exports (TW4Win 2.0 Format), the import works as intended. This is pretty inelegant and it could potentially cause some minor problems down the line. The TMX spec that I have found doesn't say much about what o-tmx one should use, I assume it's a free-for-all... Anyone have a suggestion aside from spoofing the Workbench string? I'm assuming that many people will use LF aligner with Studio (note: until I roll out an update, current users can either import the TMXes to Workbench, export and then import to Studio, or just edit the o-tmf string).

Here's a TMX sample as produced by LF Aligner:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE tmx SYSTEM "tmx14.dtd">
<tmx version="1.4">
<header
creationtool="LF TMX maker"
creationtoolversion="2.01"
datatype="unknown"
segtype="sentence"
adminlang="EN-GB"
srclang="EN-GB"
o-tmf="aligned"
>
</header>
<body>
<tu creationdate="20101114T180539Z" creationid="LF TMX maker 2.01"><prop type="Txt::Note">this is a note added to the TU</prop><tuv xml:lang="EN-GB"><seg>Text</seg></tuv><tuv xml:lang="ES-ES"><seg>Texto</seg></tuv></tu>

</body>
</tmx>
