XLIFF Translator Quick Start

This short guide will get you started using XLIFF Translator.

I’ll assume that you’ve already downloaded and installed XLIFF Translator. If you haven’t, do so now. See Getting Started for details.

Create a New Project

First, start XLIFF Translator. Then from the File menu, select New Project.

The New Project wizard appears. On the first page, select a directory for your project. Somewhere in your My Documents folder is probably a good idea. Now click Next.

On the second page, select a file to translate. In this tutorial, I’ll assume that you’ve specified the following URL: http://felix-cat.com/media/downloads/simple.html (this is a simple HTML file for the tutorial). Click Add URL to add the URL. Now, click Next.

On the third and final page, select the source and target languages. The source of the sample HTML file is English; pick set the target language as you like.

Translate the File

The file “simple.html.xliff” will appear in the list to the left. Select it; the segments in the file appear in the boxes to the right.

On the toolbar, click on the right arrow (“Look Up Next”) button. The first segment is selected, and Felix appears with that sentence as the query.

Translate that, and then click on the up-and-right arrow (“Set and Next”) button. The translation is registered, and the next segement is looked up.

Generate the Target

Repeat this until all four segments are translated. Next, from the Projects menu, select Generate File. The target file will be generated.

Go to your project directory. In the “target” folder, you should see the translated HTML document.

You’re finished! Exit XLIFF Translator.
