Wf Pro and pretranslated sdlxliff Mar 21, 2016

Hello Silvina,

In case of Wordfast Pro 3.x, all you need is to receive a *pretranslated* sdlxliff file from your client.
This format will include a sort of bilingual table with language pair information embedded.

Then you open it with your Wordfast Pro, translate the Wf-native txml copy, and at the end you save the translated file (Wf Pro converts it back to the sdlxliff file).

You may find more information at: https://www.wordfast.net/wiki/Wordfast_Professional and http://wordfast.fi/.

Good luck!
Marcelina

In case of NO TM? Mar 21, 2016

Dear Marcellina,

Thank you very much for your fast reply

Kind regards

Actually, the technical Trados Studio term is prepare: you can "prepare" a project in Trados Studio with or without a TM (or with an empty TM). Once the project has been "prepared", you get an SDLXLIFF file that can be opened by other tools that support the SDLXLIFF file format, Wordfast Pro being one of them.

Misalignment - warning messages after importing into Studio Mar 30, 2016

Dear Marcellina and Dominique,

Thank you very much for your support ♥

My client told me that after importing into Studio the pretranslated SDLXLIFF file ¡file with Wordfast, generated the following errors:


XLIFF Inline tags mismatch detected. Please run the Tag verification to see details
XLIFF Validation error on line 18 offset 2709: La seuqnza di chiavi "2" contenuta nel keyref contiene alcuni riferimenti errati"


Could you give me some advice on how to solve it?

Are they due to some errors with tags in Wordfast Pro?

I really want to begin this project using WF


Thanks in advance for your support
