Hi,

I have two huge files (54k words) to review and I have downloaded two .xlf files from XTM Cloud so that I can review them using SDL Studio 2017.

Does anyone know what happens with the tracked changes? Will they be transferred to XTM?

Thanks

I doubt that the tracked edits will be transferred. As far as I know, XTM Cloud can't import SDLXLIFF files, but only it's own XLF file format. This means you're going to have to open the XLF file in Trados (which will convert it to SDLXLIFF), edit it, and then export it back to an XLF file in the end. The XLIFF standard does not have a standardised way of containing tracked edits. The SDLXLIFF format's method of tracking changes is not standard in all XLIFF files but is unique to SDLXLIFF.

If you open an SDLXLIFF file with tracked changes in MemoQ, MemoQ will recognise the tracks and will apply those edits to the MemoQ XLIFF file, but that is a special case, because the SDLXLIFF file is the "source" file, whereas in your scenario the XTM XLIFF file is the source flle and the SDLXLIFF file is the intermediary file.

Thanks Samuel. I forgot to mention that I got the liffs from XTM itself (exported them).

I just imported back one of them to see what happens (while the Track Changes was still on - visible edits). Nothing happens. None of the edits are imported.

I'll accept one them and try to import it again and see if the changed seg appears in XTM.
