InDesign®: INX and IDML

INX is a document exchange format of the desktop publishing application Adobe® InDesign®. memoQ currently fully supports INX files created in versions CS2, CS3, and CS4 of InDesign®.

The new document exchange format, “IDML is an XML-based format for representing InDesign content. Essentially, it is a major revision of INX, InDesign’s previous XML-based file format. IDML addresses INX shortcomings, in an effort to represent InDesign content in a human-readable format—something that can be reasonably assembled and disassembled by a competent XML programmer.” (Source: Adobe InDesign Markup Language (IDML) Cookbook, Adobe System Incorporated, 2008)

memoQ fully supports importing and exporting IDML files.
