TM Import Functions

Function
Description
Import with user interaction
All translation units will be imported. In the case of translation units that are not clear, you as the user can decide what is to be done.
Import without user interaction
All ambiguous translation units that would require interaction (e.g., translation units with different numbers of segments) are saved to a separate TMX file. This file can later be imported separately. This mode is especially recommended for extensive TMX imports.
Use auto-adjustments
Across will try to adjust crossTank entries with respect to placeables, formatting, and tags, in which e.g. only a placeable is different. These entries will not be stored as two crossTank entries but only as one crossTank entry.
Import crossTank entries with sentence segmentation
  • For translation units containing the same number of sentences in the source and target segments (e.g., 2 sentences each in the source and target segments), you can determine that:
  • The sentences should be treated as a perfect match, meaning that the individual sentences from the source and target segment are put together as sentence pairs (e.g., sentence 1 of the source segment with sentence 1 of the target segment, sentence 2 of the source segment with sentence 2 of the target segment, etc.) and saved as separate translation units.
  • during the import process a dialog box will appear in which manual corrections can be made to the respective translation unit.
  • the sentences are merged to one segment.
  • the translation unit is discarded and is not transferred to crossTank.
  • For translation units containing a different number of sentences in the source and target segments (e.g., 2 sentences in the source segment and 1 sentence in the target segment), you can determine that:
  • during the import process a dialog box will appear in which manual corrections can be made to the respective translation unit.
  • the sentences are merged to one segment.
  • the translation unit is discarded and is not transferred to crossTank.
