Studio 2011: Workflow for translation of changing source files
Thread poster: Dmitry Moraru
Oct 24, 2012

Dear colleagues,

I am trying to implement a workflow for maintaining a multilingual web site. The content in source language (English) is maintained by our site development team, then checked out from revision control system (svn), translated and reviewed by SDL Trados Studio 2011 (using standard project packages) and finally html/php is generated for target language.

However some of the source pages (English) may be changed later (or even when translation is in progress) by developers. What is the correct way to handle source changes in Trados project?

I would like to rebuild sdlxliff, re-apply the translation to the unchanged part of the page, translate/review the changed parts and re-generate the targets. Unfortunately I cannot find how to refresh the sdlxliff after the initial "add file/folder". Please suggest.

... then you would create a new Project based on the previous project and use Perfect Match to ensure everything you did before is as it was but now you have the new content too.
