IDML (InDesign Markup Language)  is an XML representation of an InDesign document or components. IDML files provide an interchangeable format for Adobe InDesign documents, as well as a way for third-party tools to modify and assemble InDesign files.

Formatting guide:

  • Complex vector graphics may cause Text United's filter not to process the file. Consider removing them from your document and placing back in the target file (after translation)
  • All text in Story elements (text frames) will be read by the IDML filter, even if placed outside the document borders.
  • Text placed in Notes will not be considered as translatable content.
  • Different formatting options (bold, italic, etc.) will add tags in Text United translation editor
  • After the period mark, the text will be divided into multiple segments.
  • Fonts, pictures and other imported files in the inDesign document will not be saved with the file, therefore they need to be re-linked after translation
  • Pictures and importable files can be embedded in the document, but will affect file size.
