Custom metadata 9.3.1 to 10.1

I need to upgrade all of our metadata for 9.3.1 to 10.1. The metadata is in a modified FGDC format with some custom fields (entities). What we would like in the end is to have all of our metadata in an editable format without the read only FGDC portion. We of course would also like to have our custom fields in an editable format.


We have and existing legacy xsl stylesheet that was used with 9.3.1 from what I read I understand that this may not work in 10.1.


And I think we also may need a metadata translator so that we can export the metadata. We have in place a tool to export all of the metadata to xml format from the 9.3.1 SDE so that no data will be lost if something goes awry in the upgrade.


I have download the ArcGIS Metadata Toolkit 101SP1 and am reviewing it's pdf.


I am inserted suggestions on the best way to accomplish this task and/or other resources I should be looking at.


Thanks so much for any input!
