I just got an xlf file for proofreading, and when I open it with OmegaT, I only get the target segments in the source field, as well as in the destination field (which makes it tricky to proofreadicon_razz.gif)

The xlf file seems to be well formed (with source and target fields), when I open it with a text editor.

Any idea for making source segment showing up?

This is the normal behaviour. OmegaT has limited XLIFF support, which accepts only files where source=target.

To use OmegaT on files already translated, you can prepare the file with Okapi Rainbow.

Okapi can create a specific OmegaT package, where the existing translation will be transformed into a TMX.

As far as I know it supports the XLIFF and it is easy-to-use crossplatform translation tool:
