The title says it all. I have a large sdlxliff file and it's getting even larger as I proceed. So the process gets slower by each segment. I need to split it, translate them and merge them to a single file again. The application SDLXLIFF Split/Merge is not available anymore on translationzone. Any ideas?

Text editor? Jun 5, 2016

Isn't this something that you can do with a text editor too? By copying the file header and closing tag to chunks of the large file?

Or: Make several copies of the file. From the first copy you remove the lines 2000-end. From the second copy you remove the lines 1-2000 and 4000-end etc.

There is an app/plugin in the translationzone webpage that does exactly what you are looking for:
