XLIFF Translation file : Formatting to do or not ?
Oct 08, 2018
I'm handling multi-language e-learning. I've create XLIFF file to have it translated by a company specialised in translation.
They told me that the XLIFF 1.2 version was very complex and they went to a Word export of my project to translate it.
Result is : loads of formatting to do in my project (sentence become bold, bullets points appear there and there)
So we are in a fight with this company that confirm that "XLIFF 1.2 will be even worst about formatting to redo after importing it"
But what I understood is that XLIFF avoid to do reformatting (except a text box to increase because a language will have more word for example).
So what is the truth ? Can somebody helps me with any experience with XLIFF file and formatting ?
Many many thanks !
