About Document Settings Templates
Using document settings templates, you can determine how Across is to handle files of various formats during check-in. This means that you can determine whether certain elements, styles, columns, images, etc. are to be displayed for translation or locked. You can also use regular expressions to define so-called placeables.
For the following instructions, you will be using a simple XML file in order to get to know the basic functionality of document settings.
Determining How the Elements Are to Be Handled
You can now determine how each of the elements is to be handled upon check-in. Distinction is made between internal and external elements. Internal elements are e.g. mark-ups within a text body, such as italics <i> and bold <b> in the example file. External elements are outside the text body and mark e.g. paragraphs.
By default, all elements for the example file are defined as External. Therefore, you merely need to adapt the element type for elements b and i. Double-click the element b; under Element type, select the option Internal. Confirm with OK. Repeat the action for the element i.
To store information about the area of the example file that a passage comes from in the TM, define structure attributes. Double-click the element p, activate the checkbox Map to structure attribute, and select Paragraph. Confirm with OK. Repeat the action for the elements h1 and h2, but select Heading instead.
For structure attributes to be taken into consideration during the pre-translation, you need to activate structure matches in the pre-translation settings in the respective project settings templates.
