Dear colleagues,

I received an XML file for translation with the following structure:
/? xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?/ /SRC_VALUE/ Original text //SRC_VALUE/ /TRG_VALUE/ ? //TRG_VALUE/

I need to translate the text from SRC_VALUE element into TRG_VALUE element. Is there any option to create such rule? For example in the .csv rule one can select which column is the source and which is the target text.

I tried to create new XML rule but in vane. Please, give me an advice.

Nadya

P.S. I am using Trados 2014.

Copy text from SRC into TRG and translate only every other segment May 20, 2016

So I ended with copying text from SRC into TRG element and translated only every other segment. Thus, when translating I benefit from the TM function (search, concordance, autopropogate, etc.). After translation I had to clean the odd segments and make sure that only the even segments have translation. After generating the target file I got the required result and did not do any post-processing.

The only cons of this workaround is the time that I spent preparing the file. I am not familiar with XML and copying and pasting 1,000 segments was a paint and took me about 3 hours. I did this in Notepad++.

If anyone have better idea, please, share it.
