Hello,

After discovering this sofware thanks to a client, I would like to use it to avoid incoherence, mistakes at the end of my translation project.

I tried to use it but it doesn't work!!I use it for Russian into French translation. I am not sure to use it in a good way. It is my first steps...When I downloaded it should have been document but I couldn't find it or did they me by document "help tool"?

If somebody can tell/help me to start with this Apsic : I would like to check *.itd (SDLX) files (bilingual) and compare the translations because some translated strings are different for only one original string.

Thank you very much in advance.

QA in ApSIC Xbench Sep 22, 2010

Sandrine,

Very quickly:

  • Create a new project (Project - New).
  • Add your .itd files to the project. Don't worry about the Glossary Properties dialog box, just click OK. Click OK to close the Project Properties dialog box. The .itd files will be loaded.
  • Go to the QA tab. Make sure "Inconsistency in Target" is selected in the List of Checks and click Check Ongoing Translation.
  • Xbench will display a list of errors. To edit a segment in SDLX, highlight the segment and press Ctrl+Alt+Enter (or right click and select Edit Source).


If this doesn't help, please read the excellent help (Help - Contents).

ApSIC Xbench is a powerful tool, but it could be confusing for beginners.

Hynek

Change regional options Sep 28, 2010

Hi Sandrine,
to check Russian files without having Russian Windows, you should change your Regional and Language Options to Russian (in Windows XP: Start>Control Panel> Regional and Language Options > in two tabs "Regional options" (1st one) and Advanced" (3rd one) change the settings to Russian and then restart your computer.

Thank you Katarzyna and Hynek Oct 26, 2010

Thanks to your 1st step, Hynek, I could manage to see something appeared but following the Katarzyna's instructions, I still can't see Russian letter but ????????? so it means that ApSic doesn't recognize cyrillic letters. Does anybody have a solution?

Thank you very much in advance.

Sandrine

Solution from Apsic company Oct 26, 2010

Hello again,

I wrote to Apsic company and they proposed to me 2 solutions :

1. (Katarzyna solution) The current version of ApSIC Xbench is not Unicode-enabled so you cannot see Russian or Japanese characters unless you change the Locale for Non-Unicode programs in the Control Panel to such languages (to simulate that you have a Chinese or Russian Operating System). This approach requires an approach and is the recommended one by Mcirosoft for non-Unicode programs.

2. If you use Windows XP, one more convenient approach is to use the free download Microsoft AppLocale, that is a an application launcher that allows you to specify a locale different from the one in your system for the application launched. So you would use Applocale to lauch ApSIC Xbench with a Chinese or Russian locale. This is more convenient because it does not require a reboot.

I did the 1st one but it doesn't work.
I downloaded the Applocale software and now it works.

Thank you again.
Have a nice day.

What's the difference between XBench and QA Checker 3.0? Nov 7, 2012

Since we're in the topic, allow me this question. I know that SDLX's QA Tool and Studio's QA Checker + Terminology Checker 3.0 are fairly similar. So I wonder if there are any advantages on XBench compared to Studio's QA tool?
