I have a lot of files. The files are organized in folders. Names of the files are often same in different folders. Is it possible to import the folder of this project with its subfolders and to export then translated files into the same subfolders?

Thank you

Import folder structure Nov 20, 2013

When you import files into your project, simply select 'Import folder structure.'

Of course! Nov 20, 2013

You simply use the import option "Import folder structure..." and choose the root folder from which you want to import, and when the time comes to exporting the files, choose "Export (stored path)".

There is one caveat though: depending on your export path rules (see the Settings - Export path rules in your project), the filename of the exported file might end up having the locale of the target language, something that could cause trouble to your customer.

You can easily change the export path rules so that only the original filename is used when exporting the files. Check the online help for more information.
