Quick word about my workflow so you can understand what I am asking.
Most of my clients use Trados, so I do the main work in CafeTran and then do the final check and review in Trados 2014 because tag issues and such can cause errors and missing translations if you try to export a package from CafeTran.
I hadn't really thought about it up to this point, but I think I need to start updating the main tmx memory I use in CafeTran with the updates made in SDL before sending the package off to the client.
So, how can I do this?
I also sometimes get very small projects from 300-1000 source characters (Japanese), and so it really isn't worth setting things up in CafeTran and then changing back to Trados for the review. I would also like to update my main tmx memory with this content as well.
Thanks in advance!
Probably the easiest way would be to export the SDLTM (as a TMX file?), and merge it with your TM the next time you open CT. That will undoubtedly lead to several duplicates, so I suggest to remove duplicates every once in a while, or to set the CT TM to latest duplicates only.
I just verified: CafeTran cannot open Studio return packages (it can create them). So, the procedure would be:
I forgot about having asked this until I just needed to restart a large project half-finished and half-turned in to the client.
I followed your steps regarding changing it to a zip file and extracting the folder.
The import seemed to work without error, so I will see how it goes translating the other half.
Amazing. Both your creative finking and the fact that it worx.
