I need to put a pre-written dialoge into graphical chat boxes using Adobe InDesign CC 2015.
I've finished the Chatbox and everything I'm doing now is
Copy and Paste,
Align correctly to other chatboxes,
Copy and paste again and so on.
This task really is repetitive and I fear that I might make mistakes due to this.
Is there anything I could do to make this more or less automatic? I can change the Chatbox Design if needed.
One possible approach would be to fill out a XML file and insert it in the Chat Windows I already did. That would be incredible cool.

You can download an example of the chat Design here:

I hope someone of you guys might know how to do it. I know that this question isn't about basic design rules but rather about usage of a specific tool.
I hope someone is able to help me.
Thank you :)
