Bork Bork Bork! For ixemple-a, rooondtripping un ippTroonsletor XLIFF file-a loses a lot ooff infformeshoon. Bork Bork Bork!
  • Some-a CMSes cleim to ixport/import zeeoor content in XLIFF. Droopel is oone-a, boot I hefee-a't beee-a ible-a to get my hoonds oon ixported XLIFF from it. Bork Bork Bork!

  • Yooo coon use-a Tredos to troonslete-a Troonslete-a-toolkit's XLIFF feeles
  • Tredos doesn't hefe-a a reel XLIFF filter; it treets XLIFF is XML, boot it is smert inooogh to protect zee-a sooorce-a text
  • Zee-a file-a moost be-a sooorcecopied (yooo coon do zeet using msgee-a)
  • To troonslete-a, simply oopee-a zee-a XLIFF file-a in TegEditor. Bork Bork Bork!

OomegeT 1.7.2

SDLX (booild 7014)

Werning: Impty terget tegs in SDLX will be-a displeyed is <0/>, und zeese-a moost be-a deleted beffore-a sefing is XLIFF igein, oozeerwise-a zeey ire-a inclooded in zee-a XLIFF file-a. Bork Bork Bork! For this reeson I'm not soore-a how SDLX will hoondle-a more-a complex XLIFF files. Bork Bork Bork! Ilso note-a zeet SDLX ooferwrites zee-a ooriginel XLIFF file-a withooot isking.
