Hi!

I am presently working in Translation Workspace XLIFF editor and need to merge source segments as the split in sentences will render an improper translation. Can anyone please advice me on how to do this?

This is my first time using TWS, so if anyone can let me know the way to deliver these files, that would be great. I think I know that but just to be sure.

Thanking you in advance.

Kind regards

Irene

I don't know how to do this, but I would assume that if the option Translation > Expand Segment is greyed out, the source text format does not permit merging that particular segment.

Thanks very much for your advice, Samuel! I have just checked and the 'expand segment' option is not greyed out so I will try that.

Thank you very much! : )

Kind regards

Irene
