When editing a segment in the browser-based editor in SDL TMS, these two characters, "<" and ">" , are not encoded correctly when the translation is saved. Instead of being stored using their encoded versions (&lt; and &gt;), they were being stored as literal characters. These characters would then be removed during the rebuild translation stage.

The browser-based editor uses the "<" and ">" characters to represent tags in the translation segment. As such, these characters were not encoded when storing the translation, regardless of whether they were being used to represent a tag or not.

Tags in the translation that are not part of the source segment are now encoded correctly when the segment is saved in SDL TMS.

SDL-hosted customers should contact SDL Support to arrange for this hotfix to be deployed.

Customers who host SDL TMS themselves should download the installer for SDLTMS12.1 Hotfix for CRQ-11178.exe from the following FTP site: TMS/12.1/Hotfix/
