I am trying to open a SDLXLIFF file from a client to do a revision of a document already translated, however OmegaT is only showing the target segments, and is using displaying as source. The actual source segments are nowhere to be found.

Am I missing something? I've never tried OmegaT for a revision before.

Thanks

I'm not sure if it is wise to use OmegaT for revision of an SDLXLIFF file, but: what you describe is what happens if you're using OmegaT's built-in XLIFF filter instead of the Okapi plugin's filter. OmegaT's own XLIFF filter is a monolingual filter (it works only if your XLIFF file conforms to certain specifications).

You need to:
1. Install the Okapi filters.
2. In OmegaT, go to Options > File Filters > disable "XLIFF" (near the top), and make sure "SDL-XLIFF files (Okapi)" is enabled (near the bottom). Also, select the filter and click the "Options" button to see what options you have:

okapi filters

The Okapi filters are here:
https://okapiframework.org/wiki/index.php/Okapi_Filters_Plugin_for_OmegaT (page)
https://bintray.com/okapi/Distribution/OmegaT_Plugin (download page)
https://bintray.com/okapi/Distribution/download_file?file_path=okapiFiltersForOmegaT-1.5-m36-dist.zip (download link)

Installing plugins in OmegaT is tricky: you have to copy the .jar file into the C:\Program Files\OmegaT\plugins folder (or similar), and you may have trouble doing this if your computer's security settings want to prevent you from doing so.

Done. Thanks for the help.

Precision for Mac users: The folder path to install plugins of macOS is actually OmegaT>Contents>Java>Plugins.

Thanks again.
