when I try to import a translation job file (.xliff) it says :

The uploaded xliff file does not seem to be properly formed.

My xliff files version is 2.0 and it seems your plugin just supports until 1.2. How could I either convert the file from 2.0 to 1.2 or update the plugin in order to accept 2.0 version?

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

1.- I double check our documentation and WPML only accepts XLIFF files up to v1.2:

I also recommend you to visit this link where you will find more information regarding XLIFF v1.2 structure: hidden link and might help you re-format the v2.0 XLIFF files

2.- Please increase the PHP Memory Limit. Minimum requirements are 128Mb:
You can add this to wp-config.php to increase WP memory:

/** Memory Limit */
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M' );

- Add it above the line /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

Kind regards,
