I've just started using Swordfish III, and so far am quite happy with it. However, when I converted the translated XLIFF file back to the original format (MS Word), the text language in the resulting file is still set as the source language (cz) and not the target language (en-GB). I set these during the initial conversion to XLIFF, and can see nothing in any settings to adjust it now. So why doesn't my translated file get encoded in en-GB?

Use Word to change language settings Dec 28, 2014


You can use Word to change the language of the document. Swordfish will not change it for you.

Simply select all text with Ctrl + A and then apply the desired language settings to the text.
