Java properties files (.properties)

You see this window when you need to localize Java programs. Text that Java programs display usually exist in .properties files. In this window, you can fine-tune how memoQ imports them.

How to get here

  1. Start importing a Java .properties document.
  2. In the Document import options window, select the bilingual Java .properties documents, and click Change filter and configuration.
  3. The Document import settings window appears. From the Filter drop-down list, choose Java .properties filter.


What can you do?

A Java .properties file contains text properties. Each property is a line of text that the Java program displays. Each property has a name and the value. The value is the actual text that needs to be translated.

Don't import extra backslashes (\): Don't clear the In values, drop backslash if it is not part of a valid escape sequence check box. Java property values may contain backslash (\) characters in an incorrect manner. Backslash characters can be used only to introduce escape sequences. If this check box is checked, and the backslash does not form a valid escape sequence with the subsequent characters, memoQ omits the backslash character from the imported text. This check box is checked by default, and it's not recommended to clear it.

When you finish

In the Document import options window: Click OK again to start importing the documents.

  • If this is a cascading filter, you can change the settings of another filter in the chain: Click the name of the filter at the top of the window.
