Qt Linguist Manual: TS File Format

The .ts file format used by Qt Linguist is described by the DTD presented below, which we include for your convenience. Be aware that the format may change in future Qt releases.

  ! Some notes to the DTD:
  ! The location element is set as optional since it was introduced first in Qt 4.2.
  ! Macro used in order to escape byte entities not allowed in an xml document
  ! for instance, only #x9, #xA and #xD are allowed characters below #x20.
 <!ENTITY % evilstring '(#PCDATA | byte)*' >
 <!ATTLIST byte
           value CDATA #REQUIRED>
 <!ELEMENT TS (defaultcodec?, context+) >
           version CDATA #IMPLIED
           language CDATA #IMPLIED>
 <!ELEMENT defaultcodec (#PCDATA) >
 <!ELEMENT context (name, comment?, message+) >
 <!ATTLIST context
           encoding CDATA #IMPLIED>
 <!ELEMENT name %evilstring; >
 <!ELEMENT comment %evilstring; >
 <!ELEMENT message (location?, source, comment?, translation) >
 <!ATTLIST message
           encoding CDATA #IMPLIED
           numerus (yes|no) "no">
 <!ELEMENT location EMPTY>
 <!ATTLIST location
           filename CDATA #REQUIRED
           line CDATA #REQUIRED>
 <!ELEMENT source %evilstring;>
  ! The following should really say one evilstring macro or several numerusform elements,
  ! but the DTD can't express this.
 <!ELEMENT translation (#PCDATA|byte|numerusform)* >
 <!ATTLIST translation
           type (unfinished|obsolete) #IMPLIED
           encoding CDATA #IMPLIED>
 <!ELEMENT numerusform %evilstring; >
