How do I set the source and target languages for my project?

Created on 17th March 2014 at 15:37 by Jamie O'Connell



In a translation project, you need to ensure that the source and target languages are correctly set up. Furthermore, you need to ensure that the one2edit™ Language Set itself contains the correct languages.

Check your Language Set

When setting up a Language Set in one2edit™, you must ensure that it contains the source language of the master document alongside the target languages. If the source language is not present, it is not possible for one2edit™ to find or create relationships between the source and target languages.

Moreover, it is vital to check that the Language Set contains the correct variant of the language. For example, if our master document is written in 'UK English', then the above Language Set will not work for us, because it only contains 'US English'.

NOTE:
Language Sets are accessed via 'Settings > Language Sets'.

Selecting the source language for a master document

The source language for a master document is selected in the 'Language' field of the translation content group.

It is important to note that any language can be chosen at this point. In other words, the list of languages from which to choose is not filtered by the languages available in your Language Set. This means that it would be possible to choose, for example, 'English (United Kingdom)' even though 'English (United States)' is the only variant of English available in your Language Set.

NOTE:
The 'Content Group Details' window is opened by clicking the 'New Group' button, or by double-clicking on an existing content group.

Selecting the target language for a translation workflow

The target language for a translation is set in the translation workflow. The target language can be dragged to the 'Language' field of the workflow from any Language Set.

Remember that each Language Set is a separate translation memory. This means that all target languages for a project should be chosen from the same Language Set (if you wish for there to be a single, unified translation memory for that project).

NOTE:
Language Sets are accessed via 'Settings > Language Sets'.

NOTE:
If you do wish to choose target languages from multiple Language Sets, you must ensure that each Language Set contains the source language as well as the desired target language.
