How to handle variables in MIF projects

MIF projects usually contain lots of variables. After all, that's what this authoring tool is designed for: writing/handling large technical documentations with lots of references, type numbers, serial numbers, part numbers, brand names etc. etc.

How to deal with them in CafeTran?

Issa siempel!

Make non-translatables of them, taking care to include the < and > too.

Now you can also use Task > Transfer non-translatable segments to target to quickly fill those many segments that only consist of variables:

In the Source segment pane:

(orange is my colour for non-translatables; note that adjacent non-translatables aren't separated by a thin white bar -- yet)

Oh, Hans, I'm sorry.

No. For some reason when replying my eyes skipped that part T-T.

Please ignore my post :D

Are we talking about Adobe FrameMaker Maker Interchange Files (MIF) here?

I like the idea of CT treating them as tags. This should be a feature!

Whenever I receive this kind of file, I prepare it using Transtoolsto make them become tags (i.e. by hiding it).


Well, actually they should have been protected and handled as tags in CafeTran too.
