Hi all,

I decided to try the Transit Package Handler plugin for Studio. I just created a project with a Transit package that I got from an agency.
I created the project in Studio using the Transit plugin and when I open it there is no file in there to translate. Do I have to add the word file manually? The package definitely has a file in there. Also what happens to the translation memory and term database that is in the Transit project package. Does this automatically transfer to Studio?

If anybody is using the Transit plugin in Studio, please let me know how you do it.

Thank you.

Best regards

Just follow the wizard May 21

I just followed the wizard. A Transit NXT package was opened and the embedded reference material was imported into a newly created TM. Once I had loaded the segments in the Studio grid, I got loads of matches from the TM.

You can sent me your package for a check.

Yes, but no file to translate May 21

Hi Hans,

Thanks for that. I did it exactly like that but can’t see a file to translate.

Do you have the word file you do the translation in on screen when you open the project. Am I missing something?

Unfortunately, I can’t send you the package due to confidentiality issues.
I tried this with several packages that I received.

Thanks

@Hans: What Operating System are you using? May 23

Hi Hans

Can you please let me know what Windows version you are using.
I use Windows 10 and going by another thread on this topic this might be the cause of the issue.

Also, if it’s not too much trouble can you please send me a screenshot of the file view once you imported the package. As I said, there are no files in mine after importing the Transit package.

Thanks heaps.

Best regards

Annett

Windows 8.1 May 23

Hello Annett,

Can you please let me know what Windows version you are using.


I'm using Windows 8.1 on my MacBook Pro (Parallels). I can test with Windows 10 which i have on my iMac (Fusion), if you want.

Also, if it’s not too much trouble can you please send me a screenshot of the file view once you imported the package. As I said, there are no files in mine after importing the Transit package.


The converted project is listed in Studio's project list, with the name of the original Transit package. Upon opening it, its content is displayed in Studio's grid, like with any other project, originally created with Studio. Okay, there's one difference: all untranslated segments are pre-populated with their source (because this is what Transit does with its projects (language pairs)).

No luck on Windows 10 May 23

Hi Annett,

Indeed no luck on Windows 10. I remember that it worked alright, a couple of months ago, when I installed the plug-in.

Good luck with trying to find a solution that works for you! (I'll write you privately, to name 2 candidates for CAT tools that also can handle Transit files.)

Hans
