Hello!

As the topic subject says, I need to create custom segmentation for a project.
I'm sure this has been discussed before but it's not easy to find the instruction all over the Internet so any help is highly appreciated.

The TM I have is segmented correctly but I also need to create sdlxliff file with custom segmentation.

Can you please advise me how to create sdlxliff file with custom segmentation?

Best regards,
Dimmo

Source Segment Text Corrections, Trados 2014 Mar 23, 2015

Here is what I have found. Hope this would be helpful.

"About Source Segment Text Corrections

You may want to edit the source segments in the document if you have small typos, such as a spelling mistake. You can then choose to update your TM with the corrected information and update the original source document by selecting File > Advanced > Save Source As.

The ability to edit source segments in the Editor view is a setting that you can select in the project settings. You can enable this when you create the project or during the project lifecycle. To edit the source segments from the Editor view, press Alt+F2. The segment is surrounded by a orange box to indicate that you can edit the segment:

Source Editing Restrictions
You cannot edit the source text for:

Project packages for which source editing was disabled

Locked segments
Documents containing tracked changes or comments in the source text

SDL Edit (*.itd) documents. Studio allows you to edit the source segments in the Editor view but cannot save the changes to the source *.itd text.

NOTE
If source editing is disabled for the project, you cannot edit the source of any translatable file in the project."
