batch-translating MusicXML files

Post by mmike » Fri Sep 17, 2021 10:26 am

to move away from the ever growing dead (dying?) horse thread ....
Does anyone know the FinaleScript way to do this to a batch of files?
Dolet 7 can do it:

Full batch translation
Dolet 7 lets you translate an entire folder of MusicXML files into Finale files, or an entire folder of Finale files into MusicXML files. If you have a lot of files to transfer, this is an enormous time saver.
Works with more versions of Finale
Dolet 7 works with Finale 2011 to 2014.5 on Windows and Macs.

Open Finale without opening a file > go to Plug-ins > Miscellaneous (at least that's where I have it) > MusicXML > Translate Folder to MusicXML > Browse for Folder > choose which one you want to translate > go
The newly created XML files are all placed into that same folder.
Before starting, in MusicXML Preferences one can choose compressed or uncompressed XML versions.

FYI, more recent versions (Finale 25, 26, 27) can do it via the File -> Export menu.
