Length Restrictions

For multiple marketing clients SEO translations and WEB translations the source file contains length restrictions (PACCAR PARTS, APOLLO VREDESTEIN). For the translator it is possible to see the length restrictions in Trados Studio but not for the Client Reviewer in the Client Review interfase in Mantra or TMS. Is it possible to build this in? 

  • Hi Ian,

    I have a client has the same request that they have length restriction for strings indicated in the source file and require us to follow when process translation.

    Currently our workaround is to pre-process xliff file offline and apply the bilingual excel format filter so that we can refer to the column of length restriction in source file, but we would also like to know if there's another way for TMS to apply the restrictions directly when we upload source file to create jobs on TMS?  

    Best Regards,

    Jack Chou

  • Hi Josje,

    Thanks for raising this idea.  Can you please confirm how these length restrictions are passed through to TMS - is this information somehow contained within the source content? Please feel free to reach out to me directly to discuss further to see how this functionality might be implemented (either in TMS or Mantra).
