Trados InSource!

Trados InSource!

By Trados AppStore Team



Trados InSource! is for the professional version of Studio only, because it uses the project automation api.

The basic functionality is the automatic creation of Studio projects, based on translatable files being dropped into watch folders that are defined by you.

You can have as many watch folders as you like and these can be local on your computer, or in Dropbox, Google Drive or any other location you wish to use.

Each watch folder has its own project template, so you have good flexibility in being able to automate the project creation process for different clients/domains.

The structure of a "watch" folder

You can add as many watch folders as you want, but they must have following structure:

Example of folder structure:

To add a new watch folder in the "Watch folders" area, click on the "Add folder" button. A new window will be opened from where you can select your watch folder. 

Once you have added your watch folder, remember to add a project template template that you wish to be used for all projects added into that watch folder and "Save" your settings.

If there are folders with files you your watch folders when you add them, the project requests will appear in "Project Requests" area.

There are two ways you can check for new project requests:

  1. Manually using "Check project requests" button Or using the "Timer Manager" enabling this option you

When a new project request is added to "Watch folder" if the timer is enabled a new notification will appear in Studio with the name of the project and the request path.

This notification will appear also when you start Studio if a new project was added to watch folder when Studio was closed.

From the notification area you can create projects for the project requests. A confirmation message will appear after the project was created and the notification will be removed for created project.

Newly created projects will be available in Studio Projects View.

How to create a project from Project Request

Select project name from "Project Request" grid and click "Create Projects"

! Important:

1. If there are no project templates available for you to select once you have added your watch folders, you need to import these into Studio first. Go to File-> Setup -> Project Templates -> Import

2. Ensure that the custom template has Language Pairs configured. It can be checked from Studio: File -> Setup -> Project Templates -> select the custom template - > Edit -> Language Pairs -> Add

3. Ensure that the Project Location is filled under the Project template from Studio: File-> Setup -> Project Templates -> select the custom template- > Edit

XLIFF Manager for Trados Studio


XLIFF Manager for Trados Studio

By Trados AppStore Team

The ProblemYou need to share files for translation or review and the people you are sharing with don't use Studio, they can't support SDLXLIFF, and they want to use a CAT tool. You also do so much of this you need to have a better way of managing the process. You want to be able to share one XLIFF on a multi-lingual project and have the translators complete the target language.The SolutionThe XLIFF Manager is the solution to this problem as it provides the following core features:- export your Studio projects as vanilla XLIFF 1.2 files- export your Studio projects as Google Polyglot XLIFF files- choose whether the target language should be set or not on export- choose whether you export all the segments in your files or not- import the translated XLIFF files back into Studio and update your Studio projects- map unsupported languages from your clients system in support of the import- generate reports of the changed work- be in control of the end to end process with a project management view in StudioPlanned Enhancements for the future updates- progress bars while waiting for the export/import. Useful for large projects- support for tracked changes in the import- add support for an XLIFF 2.1 export- add support for an SDLXLIFF export (to help with the management of an SDLXLIFF file workflow outside of a package)- we're open to suggestions in the RWS Community!To learn how to use this application, please please check the Documentation tab.
