It is very easy to remove the editor's name in MS Word. Is it possible to do the same with SDL Studio 2014?

Where can you find the name of editors in SDL Studio ?
I just wondering where it is.

User names are stored in the TM and in the SDLXLIFF Jun 17, 2015

Every segment you translate contains three timestamps: date of creation, date last modified and date last accessed. The first two also contain the name of the user. This metadata is stored in the TM (for each TU) as well as in the SDLXLIFF file (for each segment).

In the TM, it can be changed using the maintenance function in the view "Translation Memories".

So it is NOT possible to change or remove the name in the SDLXLIFF file. I thought it had a similar feature as MS Word's "remove personal information," with which you can easily remove all the personal information saved in a Word file.

I have failed to find the "the name of the user." in the sdlxliff file.
I opened it with text editor and checked it out from headr to the last "group".
But, it does not have my name in it even once.

In TM, it should be there. But it's so simple to manipulate it.

That is just impossible.

If SDLXLIFF had your name on it, You can delete it. Absolutely.
But, (Un)fortunately, it does not have your name on it.
So, simply, it is impossible.

Depends how you're working... Jun 21, 2015

... if you are using tracked changes as you work then the name of the editor is stored in the SDLXLIFF. There is no anonymise feature here, but you could easily search/replace using regex in a decent text editor.

Might make a simple OpenX application too if there is a demand for this? Just a button on the Files/Project View to anonymise selected files.

Nothing but too expensive program. Jun 21, 2015

1. Close SDL Studio

2. Open some "Text editor" you like (Notepad etc..)

3. Now open a text file (format is sdlxliff)

4. Go to folder
(in case, Franch -> Englush)
Woring_folder\Project_name\en-US

5. Your file is like this;
Some_name_of_source_file_format.sdlxliff

6. "Find and replace"
Find: author="Foo"
Replace: author="Boo"
(where, Foo is Your name in short
Boo is some other name or something else)

7. Save & Close the sdlxliff

8. Open SDL Studio.


SDL Studio is nothing but too expensive program for editing simple text.

SDL Studio is not intended "for editing simple text" Jun 21, 2015

This software is intended for completely different purposes.

Perhaps another, and more complete way... Jun 22, 2015

... in case you are receiving sdlxliff files with changes from multiple authors is to use this regex:

Search
(author=").*?(")

Replace
$1anon$2

So replace anon with whatever name you would like in the track changes. This will replace it in the Studio Editor, but it does not completely anoymise the SDLXLIFF because we also store the deleted/amended details with the username as well.

So you could also run this one:

Search
(?<=(created_by">|last_modified_by">))\w+

Replace
anon

I didn't run a really comprehensive check on this so back up your original first, but this seemed to work for me. I guess with a little ingenuity you could combine these two searches into one expression.

Open in a SQLite editor...

... and replace the author's name with sheer nothingness?
