SDLXLIFF is a SDL bilingual file format which is created in SDL Trados Studio. In order to import SDLXLIFF files into memoQ, they need to be prepared in Trados Studio:
▪In Trados Studio, open the project and click Files in the left hand vertical menu. Make sure the project source language is active.
▪In the File menu, click Add files to add the document(s).
▪In the document list, select the document(s) you have added in the previous steps.
▪In the File menu, go to Batch tasks, and select Prepare to create the document files for the target language(s).
▪Click Files in the left hand vertical menu, and switch to the target language. (Or the first target language you want process if the project is a multilingual one.)
▪In the document list, right-click one of the documents, and choose Explore Containing Folder. This will open the folder that contains the *.sdlxliff file(s) you will process in memoQ.
▪Navigate to the SDLXLIFF file(s) names you would like to process in memoQ, and copy those SDLXLIFF file(s) to another location.
▪If there is more than one target language, repeat the steps for the additional target languages.
▪Import the SDLXLIFF files into your memoQ project, choose Import > Import with options on the Documents ribbon tab.
After the translation in memoQ is complete, you need to update the Trados Studio document(s)
▪Make sure you do not have the affected document(s) open in Trados Studio.
▪Navigate to the location where the document(s) originally resided. In the document list, right-click one of the documents, and choose Explore Containing Folder. This will open the folder that contains the "original" versions of the SDLXLIFF file(s) you have processed in memoQ.
▪Overwrite the SDLXLIFF file(s) with the "new" versions you have created using memoQ.
▪Open the document(s) in Trados Studio for editing. Do a test export to the final format to verify that the process was successful.
