Hello,

Does anyone out there knows where can I find some tutorials or better documentation to SDL Passolo?

The documentation/online help is rubbish. It's actually outrageous, that such a powerfull tool has such a bad documentation.

Please help me with some tutorials and a better documentation to SDL Passolo.

Thanks.

Wish you all a nice weekend.

What do you need to know? Apr 9, 2011

Passolo is so simple that there hardly is a need for a tutorial. Save the translation bundle and double-click on it, so Passolo will start.
If you do not see what needs to be done ask your customer, who should be an expert for Passolo (if they want you to use it).
You can apply filters, so you see only the cells that needs to be translated. After each translated cell click on the hook at the bottom.

TOPIC STARTER
changing target directories Apr 9, 2011

I find the topics "target directories" and "simulate translation" insuffiecient explained.

I got an old project file. The project contains over 500 files. I have other local paths and I need to change the target paths within the project. If I would do this manually, I would need a lot of hours of work before I can start the actual work... the documentation isn't helping at allicon_frown.gif

I'm trying for at least 2 days now to change the target paths within the project for multiple files at once at I can't figure it out...icon_frown.gif

Does anyone has a tipp form me on how to change the target paths for multiple files at once? A logical tipp please, and not the "help" the Passolo documentation is offering.


Same problem with the simulation of translation. At least this feature is somehow logical and one does not necessarily need any help, but the fact is that the documentation at this point needs a really big improvment.

All the best and a nice weekend.

You are right Apr 10, 2011

Projects of this complexity should probably not be done with Passsolo. I get only very simple jobs from one customer for P. So I'm sorry but cannot help you in this case.

Please clarify some details Apr 11, 2011

Hello,

what would you like to change? It's not completely clear to me.
I have other local paths and I need to change the target paths within the project.

Does it mean that you have moved the referenced source and target files to different local folders and now want to change all folder names?

In the project view open the Folder tree and right click the folder you want to change. Select Change Folder from the menu. The corresponding chapter in the online help can be found when searching for "change folder" or "change path".

Changing the paths of selected target file in done by changing or creating a target path rule and then applying it to selected files in the project.
