Can be done when import the source files into SDLX Oct 2, 2007

During the process of importing the source files into SDLX, there is a check box to "Glue files together for processing".

Select this option to enable SDLX to glue several HTML or
XML files together to create a single large file for translation.

The default maximum number of files that can be glued
together is 1,000. You can change this figure if you wish.
If you select more files than the maximum you have specified, more than one ITD will be created.

The glued files are named: _HTML001.itd, _HTML002.itd
etc. A file named glued.txt is also produced. It contains a list
of all files that have been glued together to create an ITD.

Files are unglued in Project Export.

Yes, you can glue them Oct 2, 2007

You can create an empty TM (with SDL Maintain) and import all the small ITDS.
Once you have the TM, you can export it to a single ITD.

When done with your translation, you'll have a TM.
Apply this TM to the bunch of small ITDs and you are done.

How about other formats Oct 3, 2007

To Yvonne:
I know the gluing solution works for html. Do you happen to know if you can do the same with itds created from InDesign?
