Resources InDesign Markup Language Resources 

Smartling supports Adobe InDesign’s IDML file type. See Translating Adobe InDesign Files for more information.


IDML supports the includeOriginalStrings directive.  By default includeOriginalStrings is true. This means that when downloading the translated version of the file if a translation is authorized but not published or pre-published the original string will be present.  To exclude incomplete translations from the file you can set includeOriginalStrings to false.
