Import and glue several .txml files?


I have a folder with three related .txml files that I want to translate together in CafeTran.

I can correctly import one .txml file at a time (by correctly, I mean "segmented").

If I select "Translate Folder with documents", either the files are not segmented

(happened once), or only one file is imported.

TIA for your help

Sounds very much like the problems Rk is having. Exactly how do you import the files? Via Drag & Drop on the Dashboard? Or via the Project Configuration dialogue box?

I tried both. I just tried via Project Configuration, all the files were imported, I was able to glue them, but they were not segmented. Then I tried to drag&drop the folder onto Project Dashboard. Nothing happens.


Sounds like something Igor has to investigate.

I DID it!
Through Project Dashboard. Edit txml, CT asked to create a NEW project. OK, I don't mind. Then in the small panel, I simply clicked on the folder of the project into which I had previously failed to import the files correctly segmented. CT imported the three txml files in there PLUS the previous project .xlf file and asked if I wanted to glue everything. I said Oh Yes, OK!, as the files looked properly segmented. Then I simply removed the .xlf file.

And I finally can work with the three related files in one single project.

I don't know though if this is reproducible.

Hi Nathalie,

It is also possible to create a project with multiple files by dragging and dropping the folder with the files onto the Project Dashboard.


I started a new project today with one txml file.
I first created the project and tried to add the txml file via the project configuration panel, but it did not work (Cafetran said smthing like I cannot save the project.)
Just selecting option "Edit XLIFF... TXML files" and they drag&dropping the txml file onto the Project Dashboard did not work either.
It worked with I clicked on "Add document" button, though.



I know I'm digging up an ancient thread, but I had the same problem as Nathalie (solved by dragging and dropping the folder as per Igor's instructions).

So I'm turning this into a feature request:
It's not possible to create a project with multiple files by using create a project (or dragging and dropping a single file and then clicking on documents). (I thought I might be able to select the folder this way, but my only option was to open it.)
So how about allowing multiple files to be selected when creating a project? Alternatively modify the file selection dialog (though since it's a native dialog, that might not be possible) to offer a 'select' option, in addition to the 'open' option.
(Note I'm on Linux - this could of course be a quirk of Nautilus.)



When you want to create a single project from a whole folder, check "Documents folder" and select the folder. It should work.
