XLIFF Manager for Trados Studio

XLIFF Manager for Trados Studio

By Trados AppStore Team



The Problem

You 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 Solution

The 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 Studio

Planned 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!

XLIFF Manager is the ideal plugin, if you wish to share files for translation and/or review with others, who do not use Trados Studio (unable to support SDLXLIFF files) but still want to work with a different CAT tool.

To manage this type of workflow more easily, the XLIFF Manager allows you to export the SDLXLIFF file(s) to a plain multilingual XLIFF format, allowing you to share one XLIFF file for a multilingual project, thuis enabling the translators to complete the target language translations


Once installed via the AppStore or through the Trados Studio integration...
