Hi all,

I met a problem. Sometimes we got translated sdlxliff file from linguists, and at the right bottom, it indicates: 0.61% Translated, 99.39% Translation Approved. I tried to find the Translated segments, make them to be Translation Approved. After checking every button, still have no clue.

I would super appreciate if someone knows how to solve this problem.

Select all Dec 20, 2013

Select the complete translation, choose Edit > Change Segment Status > Translation Approved.
Save and close the file.

If you do not want to touch any other translation unit, you can use the display filter and select "Translated".

Only translation units marked as "Translated" will show, then you can apply what Renée is telling you.

Good luck

I want to find the Translated Dec 22, 2013

Thank you, Miguel and Renée.

However, my problem is the sdlxliff file is huge, and I need to know how to find the TRANSLATED, then I can easily change the status to Translation Aprroved.

To change status from "Translated" to "Translation Approved" Dec 22, 2013

Hi Christin,

To globally change the segment status in an SDLXLIFF file from "Translated" to "Translation Approved", do the following:

  1. Make a copy of the SDLXLIFF file

  2. Open the SDLXLIFF file copy in a text program like Notepad, Notepad++, etc.

  3. Perform a global replace: conf="Translated" for conf="ApprovedTranslation". (NOTE: Include all the text as shown [conf="..."], i.e., including conf and the quotation marks, otherwise you might corrupt the file!)

  4. Open the SDLXLIFF file copy in SDL Studio to verify that you obtained the expected result!

  5. If all looks OK, make the SDLXLIFF file copy your work file


Best of luck

Doesn’t matter how huge it is... Dec 22, 2013

... the process suggested here will work just fine.

If you have multiple files in your Project and they are also huge then it may be easier to use the SDLXLIFF Toolkit : http://wp.me/p2xDjK-tu

Whilst you can edit the file in notepad I wouldn’t recommend it unless you are very confident about what you are doing as it’s not really controlled and quite easy to make a mistake.

Regards

Paul

Sorry, Paul, at least for me, it does matter how huge it is. In the end, it will indeed usually work, but for large sdlxliffs, it can take a huge amount of time. Certainly enough to think the programm has crashed, or, if you have more experience, brew and drink a cup of coffee, maybe enjoy a walk round the block too.icon_wink.gif This on a 64bit Win7 machine with 16GB RAM.

... in that performance wise it will take a while, and may not even be possible at all since the batch tasks can handle larger files than the editor can. In this case the SDLXLIFF Toolkit is the way to go... although I would guess that in this case most of the file is translated so I guess it’s not so large it could not be worked on unless it was split up in the first case.

Paul

If you need to check the translated segments one by one and then change the status to "Translation Approved":
1. Ctrl + g (In the "Go To" window, choose "Status" on the left, then only check "Translated" on the right)
2. Click "Next", it will jump to the next translated segment.
3. After this, press Ctrl + J, it will lead you to the following translated segments one by one.
