    • Format:

      The entire drop-down option meniu for Format

      • OmegaT: Export the content in an OmegaT-optimized kit. OmegaT is XLIFF-capable.
      • Optimized Bilingual TRADOS® RTF: Export the content as a list of bilingual Trados segments. Shows the current or suggested translations within the RTF
        Download options2.png

      • RTF (list view): Export the content as a list of individual segments. Matches are from the TMX file, not by pre-segmenting or pre-translating the RTF files. More simplified than the paragraph view, but without the extra features that paragraph view offers
      • Xliff 1.2 or Xliff 2.0: Export the content in XLIFF format. Format recommended for SDL Trados (Tag Editor) and other XLIFF-capable tools
      • Trados 7 TTX: Export the content as a Trados 7 TTX file
    • Placeholder Format: Select the format in which placeholder tags (ptags) are shown. Placeholder tags are representations of HTML tags that need to be moved as part of localization. For example, links. Ptags have no impact on XLIFF files. For non-XLIFF formats, choose from:
      • Compact: [l1][/l1]
      • Verbose: [link1][/link1]
    • TM Options:
      • Annotations: Insert the resource links as Microsoft Word comments, highlighted in yellow. Annotations do not work well in Word 2002, which displays the full text of the annotations within the text
      • TMX File – 1.4b: For XLIFF files, use this option or Annotations to insert TM matches into the XLIFF file as alternate translations. For RTF files, select the method by which the downloaded RTF file displays links to Source segments, TM matches, and Terminology matches
      • Both (TMX File 1.4b and Annotations)
      • None: Insert any Resource links. You need to open the HTML resource pages manually in the download directory. Use this option to minimize the size of the download package
      • Set Creation ID to "MT" for machine translated segments: Mark the 100% matches that come from MT accordingly when downloading segments into the TM. The TMX file many include MT matches so these are distinguished
    • Penalized Reference TM Options: This option is only active when one of the TMX File options for the TMOptions dropdown is selected. For OmegaT exports, this option is not enabled. Choose from:
      • Separate TMX with Pre-Penalized Source: This option is selected by default. It will export a separate TMX file containing all content from the penalized reference TMs only.
      • Separare TMXs Per Reference TM Penalty: When checked, it exports a separate TMX file for each Reference TM penalty
    • Terminology:
      • HTML
      • TBX
      • TRADOS MultiTerm iX
      • None
    • Allow Edit of Locked Segments: Define whether you can make changes to segments with different match types:
      • Allow Edit ICE and 100% Locked Segments
      • Allow Edit ICE Locked Segments
      • Allow Edit 100% Locked Segments
      • Deny Edit
      • Note: Depending on the option selected, less of the overall word count is exposed for translation as segments have been locked. Locked segments are not counted in external translation tools. For comparable counts between GlobalSight and external tools, select Allow Edit ICE and 100% Locked Segments
    • Populate 100% Target Segments : The option is checked by default. 100% matched target segments will be populated into offline downloaded files such as Xliff, TTX files. UnChecked - Source segments will be populated into offline downloaded files instead of matched target segments.
    • Populate Fuzzy Target Segments
    • Populate MT Target Segments: The option is checked by default.MT matched target segments will be populated into the offline downloaded files such as Xliff and TTX files. If unchecked, the source segments will be populated into the offline downloaded files, instead of the matched target segments.
    • Preserve Source Folder Structure:If the option is checked, the "inbox" folder of the downloaded TransKit will contain the same folder/file (as bilinguals) structure as per the source (ZIP) used to create the job.
    • Consolidate/Split Type: You can choose from the drop-down:
      • Consolidate All Files: Check to consolidate all segments from different pages into one offline downloaded file, such as RTF, Xliff file.
      • File by File: Offline download file by file.
      • Split File per Word Count: For this option, the minimum word count of the Download Setting should be 1000.
    • Include Repeated Segments as Separate File: Export repetitions as one separate file. Repetitions can be saved into a TM and then leveraged against the existing project by updating the leverage and the word count. The result is 100% matches
    • NOT include fully leveraged file(s): Click here to NOT include fully-leveraged files. A file is fully-leveraged when all segments are 100% exact match or ICE
    • Include XML Node Context Information: When checked, it includes code in the download for context only. The option adds an additional ‘extradata’ attribute to the translation unit. This extradata contains the non-translatable skeleton of the source file which precedes the text for translation. This can add context for translators as the skeleton may contain information that is relevant when translating the content.
      • Side by side example of an Xlf file with XML node info vs one with the option unchecked:
        Xml extradata.jpg

        • In the example above, the source file was an XLIFF file, the ‘extradata’ contains the code of the source file:

        • When viewed with un-escaped characters you can see that the contents of ‘extradata’ matches the source of file:
