We want to use Passolo as part of a larger system.
Is there a way to add source language strings via Automation without going through a source file?
Is there a way to add target languages via Automation?
Is there a way to add translated strings via Automation?
On http://www.translationzone.com/openexchange you can click on Developer which will bring to all the SDKs that are available for various SDL products. If not done your need to register as a developer.
SDL Passolo offer 2 different automation modes. Using the SDK you can develop parsers and other add-ins for SDL Passolo in C++ and C# that can read and write files, retrieve translatable content from elsewhere and allows you to implement visualizations and dialog editors. This SDK can be downloaded from the website above.
In addition the COM object model allows you to implement parsers, but which a smaller scope of function. The implementation is usually done with the internal VBA compatible scripting engine. An example can be found in the Automation Help documentation. See Chapter Using the SDL Passolo Automation – Example 5: Handling of other file types.
Hope this helps.
