Target tags (or the lack of) in xliff files

We use a translation company to translate XLIFF files from RISE. Today the XLIFF file from RISE  is missing <target> tags, and this causes extra work (and therefore cost). The <target> tags must be added manually. Is there a way to create an XLIFF file in RISE that has a <target> tag for each corresponding <source> tag?

Hi Ellen,

The XLIFF <source> file from RISE will have all the <source> tags. The Xliff file you receive back from your translation provider should have all the corresponding <target> tags. 

In the situation you outline above the XLIFF <target> tags have not been carried across from the XLIFF <source> during the translation process.

Quality Assurance by your translation should pick this up before they deliver the XLIFF file to you.

You would not create a RISE XLIFF file with <target> tags (this would be done during translation). RISE will only create a <source> XLIFF file for translation.

If you have any other RISE translation related questions please feel free to ask me.
