Anyone know how to work with SDL Groupshare?

I have just received a project via SDL Studio Groupshare.

I receive many SDL projects and have my own method for working with these projects in CafeTran.

However, I have no idea how to get the files so that I can actually do the work in CafeTran with this Groupshare project.

I would really, really, really hate to have to do this project completely in Trados, so I hope someone knows what to do.

While you're at the translation stage, the sdlxliff will most likely be copied to your HDD. At least that's what I hope. You then can copy it to your ct projects folder. You WILL need Studio to hand on the project to the reviewer etc.

Yes, the source and target are there. However, when I tried to drag the source into CafeTran to start the project, I received an error regarding something about the target language not being set.

Also, the memory for this project is stored on the server. I do not seem to be able to download it, so I guess I am f***ed on this one.

Jason: ...something about the target language not being set

This happened to me once or twice with lazy PMs. I had to ask somebody with Trados (and Windows...) to set the target language for me, but because of your first posting in this thread, I think you own Trados, so you can set it yourself. And work in CT, of course.


Yeah, I am trying to get them to allow me to download the TM.

Then, maybe it won't be a problem.
