I am facing a rather complex situation. I have a big file where in the target section I need to mark as external instances of Name= (with a find/replace operation probably / in the second string below); however, I am not sure how to do this, as in a couple of my attempts the file would not open in TagEditor, coming up with an error.

Name=Text View


Name=Text View




This is what this bit of code looks like in TagEditor:

A solution Feb 27, 2008

After some experimentation I found the solution.

In the target element I tried a global find for Name= (case sensitive / whole word matching). And I replaced it with

Name=

So the target segment looks like this:

Name=Text View

instead of this:

Name=Text View

After translating, I save ttx file as xliff and the full translation unit looks like this:



Name=Text View
Name=Προβολή κειμένου
