    Lost on how to change text via .idml in an existing .indd project

    wordgeektranslation

      Hello there,

       

      Very very new to Indesign and at a bit of a loss... my normally adept googling has hit a wall.

       

      Here's the breakdown, very grateful for any advice:

       

      - I received an Indesign project for a translation job (with subfolders: Document fonts, Links, a mystery file, and the actual .indd file)

      - In order to carry out the translation, I had to export to .idml and use another software platform to edit.

      - Now I have a COMPLETELY MODIFIED .indd file

      - I'm hoping to somehow replace all the text from the prior .indd project with the new text in my .idml

       

      The file opens fine in Indesign and I can save it as an .indd, my issue is I hoped to send back to the client the same package they sent to me (with subfolders: Document fonts, Links, a mystery file, and the actual .indd file), but as I understand it, the .idml file does NOT contain all this info.

       

      Thanks in advance for your help...

       

      Daniel
