When using CafeTran Espresso 2018 as an interesting alternative for SDL Studio 2017, there are occasions where one has to deal with the feature Tracked Changes of Studio.

The first occasion is where the translator opens a Studio package in CafeTran Espresso 2018 and inserts tracked changes while reviewing her own or someone else's translation. Personally, I don't think that this scenario will be used very frequently.

The second scenario is more likely to happen: a translator creates a translation of a Studio package in CafeTran Espresso and sends the translated package to his client for review. A reviewer adds tracked changes in Studio and returns the reviewed package. The translator will have to process these tracked changes in CafeTran Espresso.

In order to use this second scenario, CafeTran Espresso will need the following enhancements:
  • Filter on segments that contain tracked changes
  • Accept or ignore individual tracked changes
  • Accept or ignore all tracked changes at once

Note that I'm not requesting a feature to create Studio-compatible tracked changes in CafeTran Espresso 2018.
