The ProteinPilot Software data dictionary (ProteinPilotDataDictionary.xml) defines fundamental chemical building blocks such as elements, amino acids, and modifications. Its schema is described in “Overview of the Data Dictionary File Schema” on page 9 of the Users Manual. This file is located in: C:\Program Files\AB SCIEX\ProteinPilot
The ProteinPilot parameter translation file (ParameterTranslation.xml) contains workflow parameter sets (which describe modifications, substitutions, digestion agents, instrument settings, quantitation schemes, and more) as well as information about how these workflow parameter sets relate to what is shown in the Paragon Method dialog box. This file is located in: C:\Program Files\AB SCIEX\ProteinPilot\WorkflowDirectory
Note: Modifications made to the ParameterTranslation.xml file can be used only in the same version of ProteinPilot Software in which they are created (for example, 3.0 .xml files work only in ProteinPilot Software 3.0. While 4.0 .xml files work only in ProteinPilot Software 4.0).
