Handling really big projects with many source documents

When you want to translate a really big project that consists of many files (e.g. MS Word documents), you can choose to create several subprojects, each containing a set of files.


Make sure that all subprojects are located in one folder, that doesn't contain any other content (other projects, not related to this one).


Imagine that you have to translate these files:


1.1 abc

1.2 def

1.3 ghi

1.4 jkl

1.5 mno

1.6 pqr

1.7 stv

1.8 wxy

1.9 z

2.1 abc

2.2 def

2.3 ghi

2.4 jkl

2.5 mno

2.6 pqr

2.7 stv

2.8 wxy

2.9 z

3.1 abc

3.2 def

3.3 ghi

3.4 jkl

3.5 mno

3.6 pqr

3.7 stv

3.8 wxy

3.9 z

4.1 abc

4.2 def

4.3 ghi

4.4 jkl

4.5 mno

4.6 pqr

4.7 stv

4.8 wxy

4.9 z

5.1 abc

5.2 def

5.3 ghi

5.4 jkl

5.5 mno

5.6 pqr

5.7 stv

5.8 wxy

5.9 z


In the folder MyProject you create the project PartOne, containing the files:

1.1 abc

1.2 def

1.3 ghi

1.4 jkl

1.5 mno

1.6 pqr

1.7 stv

1.8 wxy

1.9 z


In the folder MyProject you create the project PartTwo, containing the files:

2.1 abc

2.2 def

2.3 ghi

2.4 jkl

2.5 mno

2.6 pqr

2.7 stv

2.8 wxy

2.9 z


In the folder MyProject you create the project PartThree, containing the files:

3.1 abc

3.2 def

3.3 ghi

3.4 jkl

3.5 mno

3.6 pqr

3.7 stv

3.8 wxy

3.9 z


In the folder MyProject you create the project PartFour, containing the files:

4.1 abc

4.2 def

4.3 ghi

4.4 jkl

4.5 mno

4.6 pqr

4.7 stv

4.8 wxy

4.9 z


In the folder MyProject you create the project PartFive, containing the files:

5.1 abc

5.2 def

5.3 ghi

5.4 jkl

5.5 mno

5.6 pqr

5.7 stv

5.8 wxy

5.9 z


After you have translated the projects PartOne up to PartFive, you can load all files together, e.g. for a final review. 


Select Open project folder... (the last item) from the Dashboard list of projects and choose the top level folder, MyProject:

You can now virtually glue all files from all subprojects together, e.g. to execute global Find and Replace actions, perform QA checks etc.


You can probably also export all subprojects in one run (this has to be verified).

Nope, CafeTran will only export the files in the first subfolder (ProjectOne). So after reviewing you'll have to close the "Master project" and open and export all subprojects (ProjectOne ... ProjectFive) subsequently.
