Hello collegues,

I've received a translated sdlxliff file and uploaded it in Wordfast.

When I tried to update the TM, the score at the right of the target column remains greyed with 0 score and no TM updated.

I ticked the "Change segment status to translated" in the sdlxliff filter, but nothing.

Previously I had translated an sdlxliff file from scratch, pretranslated with Studio and then translated in Wordfast and it worked.

Do you know why?

Thanks
Lucia

Bugs reported May 10, 2016

Dear Lucia,

This bug has been reported and there is a ticket to fix it. The segments are not committing because they haven't been modified (try adding and deleting a space; it should then commit). This happens when for example you receive a pre-translated SDLXLIFF file or you are editing someone else's work.

However, there is a workaround. When you finish the project and want to update your TM, you can do so from the current project view > Clean-up.

One more thing, I found another bug with SDLXLIFF files when you try to clean-up at the project level:
clean-up fails if you choose the option "Create subfolder by language". This has also been reported and will be fixed.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Best,

John

Good to know May 13, 2016

Hi John thanks for your reply.

I'll check your way and I'll let you know.
The best thing would be importing and translating a file without having to pre-translate it.

But, I think it will be done in future.

Lucia
