Adding tags to target segments
Thread poster: FAIRTRAD

Sep 5, 2017

Hi all,

I have been looking for this answer for months.

I sometimes need to put some words in italics or in bold in the target segment only. This means there will be extra tags that are not present in the source segment.

Other CAT tools have specific format buttons for this, but I could not manage to find the function in XTM online. If I add manually , for example, it does not recognize it as a tag.

Has anyone got the solution?

Thanks in advance

XTM supports adding text formatting that is not present in the source text. However, the feature has to be enabled first in XTM configuration.

You can find more details about this feature in XTM user manual:
Please look for “text formatting” in the manual.
