MXLIFF documents are primarily intended for translation inside Memsource Editor or to be imported into Memsource directly via the UI. To import an MXLIFF file into SDL Trados as a translatable file, change its extension to XLIFF first. (.MXLIFF files are not automatically recognized by SDL Trados, so they are imported as reference documents.)
Please note: When translating MXLIFF documents outside of Memsource, we cannot guarantee how the files will be processed by other software.
Known Issues with SDL Trados
Issue: While translating MXLIFF in SDL Trados, the resulting MXLIFF document cannot be opened nor imported back to Memsource.
Solution: SDL Trados adds additional information to XLIFF documents that are not a native part of an MXLIFF document. In order to produce a valid MXLIFF document, the option Do not store segmentation information in the translated file needs to be turned on in the XLIFF File Import Settings.
