Dear SDL community,
I am afraid I have to ask for help again, as for the first time I am working in Studio from scratch (no package nor TMs provided by a PM, only an XML source file).
The file to translate contains a few custom placeholders in the form of #name# (example: #orderid#, #username#). These placeholders should not be modified. Unfortunately, the machine translation sometimes translates them and always adds spaces around them, as can be seen in the picture below:
After searching for a while, I learnt about SDL's variables through Paul's blog. I entered 5 of these placeholders in the TM using the Variables Manager. Unfortunately, these variables are still being modified as before. I understand that the feature is linked to the TM. By using Google's AT, I am probably bypassing the TM and its variables, is that right ? If so, what other method could help me achieve a cleaner AT ?
