XML Elements - All objects

Author-it XML Format for Translation

Every Author-it object will contain an object element. This element will contain general properties that apply to all types of object. None of the elements within the object element require translation, and should not be changed.

Data within the Object element should not be translated:


Internal ID used within Author-it to identify the object, not visible to user.


ID used by Author-it to identify an object and allocated at object creation time. Can be considered unique across all libraries (though translated objects will share the same GUID).


The object description as it appears within the Author-it editor. This is for internal purposes only and does not appear in any published outputs.
