Support for Bilingual Trados files and HTML inside XLIFF

Trados bilingual files

You can translate or post-edit Trados bilingual files with Wordbee. Although this format has been dropped by SDL some time ago, it is still a commonly used format. Simply upload your .bak files to the project library and mark them for translation.

XLIFF with HTML contents

We support HTML contents in XLIFF files. You need to enable this in the XLIFF filter (go to Settings, then click XLIFF). The key advantage of this feature is that html tags are protected in the translation editor.

A side note

Since we are talking about formats, some of you may not know that we handle multilingual XML files with or without HTML contents. For example, translating an XML file containing 10 different language versions is easy. You only need to configure an XML filter and tell the system how it can identify the languages: Often, a language code is contained in an XML attribute or the text nodes are named differently for each language. Together with our xpath configuration options we likely have the most advanced XML filter in the market.

If you XML already contains translations, the system will of course import those straight into the editor for post editing or revision.

    Hi Brahim

    Please tell me how to extract a Trados compatible bilingual file from my translation done in WB. Can't find that anywhere. I don't want it in a table. 

    Also, please tell me how to export the TM (in tmx format)

     

    thanks

    Hi Grite,

    If you have started or completed a translation on Wordbee but for some reason need to export both source and target to Trados, this article describes how to proceed.

    http://www.wordbee.com/customer-center/cc-new-wordbee-features/taking-work-offline-with-xliff/ 

    In order to export a TM from Wordbee, you need to go to the "Resources" tab in the main navigation menu, select your TM and then click on "Export" and select the TMX format.

    Kind regards,

    Brahim

    Hi Grite,

    For some reason, your answer arrived in our spam box, so I'll copy it here !

    Hello Brahim Thank you. I am not familiar with Trados files. I only need this because some of my clients are asking for it. However, what I sent them from Wordfast was a bilingual Word document, not a txliff. Can I send the client a txliff document instead? does that work for them? And while I'm here I have another problem: sometimes, when I do a word count for a new project, I get 0 words. I've had that several time for different Word documents. In that case I have to add the word count manually. Why is that? I also have problems with the PDF converter. Sometimes it gives me a blank page.. and sometimes it works just fine. thanks Marguerite
