I am using Studio 2009 Professional SP3

A translator has sent me a translated SDLXLIFF file to check, not as a package and not as a project.

Is there any way of opening this in Review mode?

If I Open Document it opens in translation mode and although it appears in the Files view I can't open it in Review mode because it is already open in translation mode.

If I don't Open Document or if I close it having opened it, the file does not appear in the Files view so I cannot open it there for Reviewing.

It may be that I am missing something obvious. Can I create a project with an already translated document in order to review it, or is there a simpler way?

I look forward to all your helpful suggestions.

Thanks.

Review mode for individual file Aug 8, 2011

After you open the individual sdlxiff file, you must first save it. It then will appear as a project with one file in the Project view. Return to the File view and the sdlxliff file will, of course, also appear there. Right-click the file to access the review mode option.

Thanks. I am undecided as to whether this counts as missing something obvious or not.icon_wink.gif

Not obvious, really. Basically, opening and then saving a file (be it a bilingual sdlxliff or even your original source file) using "Open Document" will create a working project, so you can then perform any tasks you would normally from within a project (particularly useful if you just want to analyze without all the setting up of projects and assigning of TMs etc).

Maybe use a Review Project? Aug 8, 2011

Hi,

One option might be to create a Project for Review that contains all the language pairs you work with. Then when you get single SDLXLIFF files like this you can add these files to the Project already created and open them for review.

Another might be if you already had a Project for this you could replace the one in your target language folder (rename the original just in caseicon_wink.gif) with the one you were sent and then open it for Review with all the TMs and Termbases available that you wanted to work with.

Regards

Paul
