Exporting a 'Translation' Content Group from a Master Document

Created on 25th November 2016 at 17:33 by Jamie O'Connell



It is possible to export a content group for translation in a third-party translation management system (TMS).

This is done directly from a master document, typically before creating any version documents or jobs in the project.

Project > Translation > Export Content Group for Translation

Project > Translation > Export Content Group for Translation

In the 'Projects' tab, select a master document that has been set up with a translation content group (or multiple translation content groups).

Click 'Project > Translation > Export Content Group for Translation'.

NOTE:
You must have already set up at least one translation content group within the master document. Otherwise, this procedure will not work.

Select which content group to export

Select which content group to export

In the 'Export contents for translation' window you can select the content group to export for translation.

NOTE:
You can only export one content group at a time.

Select the export format

Select the export format

Choose the format for the exported content group content.

Two options are available:

  • one2edit Translation
  • one2edit Translation (Absolute Tagging)

These are one2edit™ XML formats (.o2et or .o2ea), which are based on the XLIFF file types. They contain all of the necessary information for translation with a third-party translation system.

Furthermore, these file formats order the segments in the natural reading order, unlike the IDML file format. This helps with translation accuracy.

Select the source language of the content group

Select the source language of the content group

Finally, choose the source language for the selected content group.

The default source language is the one chosen for the content group in the master document.

NOTE:
If a translation workflow for the selected content group has already been fully completed, then it is also possible to choose that target language as the source for the exported translation file.
For example, if a master document is in English (US), and a fully translated and approved German (DE) version document exists in that project, then it is possible to export a translation XML file in German (DE) for translation into, for example, German (AT). This means that the translator could start from a very similar language instead of starting from English.
