XML files can be handled in Wordfast Pro 5 as follows:

  1. You first need to have/create an extraction rules (*.properties) file.[1]
  2. Go to the Wordfast Pro menu > Preferences > New Project Preferences > Filters.[2]
  3. Click on the Add button.
  4. Choose the file format Text-based filter (*xml).
  5. Give your filter a name (e.g. the client's name).
  6. Use UTF-8 for the encoding and target encoding unless the XML source file is in another encoding.
  7. Use the Browse... button next to "Extraction rules" to locate the extraction rules (*.properties) file.
  8. Make sure the "Extension" field shows *.xml and save the settings by pressing OK.
  9. Now, when creating a new project, you can add the XML file and it will use this newly created filter. If you have more than one customized XML filter, you will be able to choose which filter to use when adding the XML file.
