Additional notes

Powerpoint (PPTX)

Redokun also imports slide notes but it does not import hidden slides.

InDesign (IDML)

Redokun imports all content inside the spreads from all layers. If your file contains more layers in more languages, read this guide.

If you want to set up the perfect translation workflow when working with Adobe InDesign files, check out our ebook: Make InDesign file translation simple and fast.


Special import settings are available for XLIFF files exported from Articulate Rise 360 and Articulate Storyline 360. 

XLIFF files created with other platforms (eg. Intellum Evolve) work out of the box using the generic settings.
