Today we updated the CopyFlow Gold for InDesign CS4 translation tool to version 4.9. Most of the new features and fixes concern XLIFF. The XLIFF format used has now been upgraded to 1.2. The XLIFF is now completely valid. The XLIFF is compatible with SDL Trados Studio 2009. During QA we discovered certain translation memory (TM) would 'strip out' Adobe line feeds. This version includes a fix for that problem.
We no longer support the optional and unadvised use of INX for XLIFF skeleton files. From this release forward - all CS4 XLIFF is based on the newer and we think, more reliable Adobe InDesign document format, IDML. The use of IDML skeletons has also enabled us to do better job round-tripping: Index and Tables of Contents material, text variables and other structural document elements.
As always, we recommend updating your CFG translation tool only after a project is completed. It is always best to complete all your outstanding translation round-trips before changing software versions.
In the case of this version 4.9 - as a result of making the XLIFF valid, it is incompatible with XLIFF exported from CFG versions 4.8.1 and earlier.
