Dear all,

I have translated an sdlxliff file in another software. After that I have reimported this file into my studio 2011 project by just replacing the untranslated sdlxliff file with the translated one. Everything works correctly. However, for some reason, the file numbering is incorrect. Instead of having each segment numbered with a different number (1, 2, 3, etc until the last segment), all segments are numbered 0. Is there anyway I can fix this problem?

Thank you in advance for your help

Fabrice

Probably.... Sep 2, 2013

... open the original file in Studio again and pre-translate with a TM created from the sdlxliff you have got back from the other tool. This is no guarantee it will work, and we don't support this either because we have no idea what the other tool may corrupt in the sdlxliff.

What tool did you use for this?

Regards

Paul

CAT tool used and tag penalties Sep 2, 2013

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your answer. We are using Memsource editor. Actually, we already did that but for some reason the source file has also been tagged differently than in the original document. The best result we had is by creating a TM with no tags by using the "import as plain text option". However, the results are still poor after pre-translation process. Maybe you can give us some tips on using the tag penalties while importing files into the TM.

Thanks

Fabrice

Segment Numbering Sep 3, 2013

What we really want to know is what causes the segment numbering to change between translating the file in MemSource Editor and replacing the file in Trados Studio. Is there a way to avoid or correct this problem?

Thanks,

David
