Can we automate translation simulation in SDL Passolo?

I am looking into pseudo-translation (transaltion simulation) as I would like to weed out development errors before we do the actual translation.

It is possible to manually start pseudo-translation, but I would like to know if it is possible to set up Passolo to do pseudo-translation with each build.

(One language would be enough, as we would primarily like to check if strings are actually translateable - and if the text might be cut off (UI is the same for all languages).)

Only a suggestion Jan 30, 2014

As there is no separated forum for Passolo (I don't know why), you should repeat your question in the SDL Trados Support forum.

Would never have guessesd Jan 30, 2014

I am aware that SDL owns Passolo, but I'd never guess that a Passolo question should be asked in the Trados forum, as the tools are so different. Thank you, I will try that.

I will wait for the answers to your question in the SDL support forum Jan 31, 2014

I have been intermitently working with Passolo since version 5.0 and being the user base so small and the program so different from Studio, I am always looking for learning something new from the fora. Maybe I should propose to form a forum dedicated to Passolo only.

Saludos

Yes translation simulation can be automated Feb 3, 2014

Hello cbcoti,

I don't know how your developers are automating SDL Passolo in their build system, but there 2 possible solutions.

a) The pseudo translation can be automated with the command line parameter /simulate
b) The pseudo translation can be automated with the function call PslTransList.SimulateTranslation() the COM object model

Detailled information can be found in the online help and in the automation help, both available from the Passolo help menu.

Hope this helps.

Where can I find more detailed information? Feb 3, 2014

Thanks a lot, Achim.

When I read the help, some details are not clear to me. Can you point to additional material that I can read?

Which solution? Feb 4, 2014

Hello,

Both solutions are described quite detailled in the help files. Nevertheless the developers that are responsible for the build system and/or peseudo translation automation must plan, design, implement and test such a customized solution. SDL can offer training and consulting if necessary.

If you have detailled questions I can try to answer them.
