I've searched high and low but cannot seem to locate a simple answer to this, so apologise in advance if this information can be found elsewhere on the board.
While processing Xliff 2.0 files in Studio 21 SP1, we are unable to apply formatting to the target segment that does not already exist in the source (simple stuff, bold, italics, underline, etc.).
I see that the Xliff 1.2 filter seems to have made provision for this via Quickinsert tags.
How can this be achieved in Xliff 2.0, if at all?
Hi James Toner
can you give me some real life example where would you use this? The way XLIFF works means that adding extra tags would be super rare thing and mainly must be supported by the system you…
I'm not sure this is supported in XLIFF 2.0. Even in XLIFF 1.2 it's only certain underlying filetypes that are supported like XML or HTML. Patrik Mazanek may be able to shed some light on this question.
Former Member - I feared this may be the case, but since it seems like such a huge oversight in practical terms, I wanted to be sure. Any comments gratefully received Patrik Mazanek
can you give me some real life example where would you use this? The way XLIFF works means that adding extra tags would be super rare thing and mainly must be supported by the system you will import the files back.
Text would look something like this, where the text between ** ** would be in italics:
Basically, we would like to be able to apply certain formatting features to our target segments before they are ported back to the tool from which they are extracted.
Not sure about rare, but the cases would be limited in scope (i.e., just italics really).
The problem is that it appears there is no means of adding Quickinsert type tags to the file filter. I can see that were they to be created, however, a custom tag would need to be created for each style in the source document in the tool.
Thanks for any insight you can provide.
So you want to add ** or actual tag into the output XLIFF?
An actual formatting tag - the ** XYZ "" was just to indicate the text to which we want to add formatting (in this case, italics). Sorry if that was not clear.
Then this cannot be done via QuickInserts - there are quite some limitations in XLIFF on how tags must be handled - http://docs.oasis-open.org/xliff/xliff-core/v2.1/csprd01/xliff-core-v2.1-csprd01.html#id - as you can see, if you want to add additional tag, it must have unique ID, quick inserts don't support such dynamic way of handling tags.
