XLIFF and InDesign

Just a quick post to see if anyone else out there who finds this article via Google or wherever is interested in solving some of the translations issues with InDesign by using XLIFF.  XLIFF is a standard XML-based format for storing translations, simplifying your translations workflow by making the actual containing format for the translations standard – and then having various software vendors implement import/export features to/from XLIFF.

Currently InDesign does not have any integration with XLIFF.  However, InDesign 4 is scheduled to have a great deal more XML support, and there is a possibility that we can get a workable XLIFF import/export workflow happening.  Anyone else interested?

    The Okapi framework already offers an InDesign filter to XLIFF.
