Translating the XLIFF file

For an accurate translation, send the XLIFF file to professional translators. Open-source and commercial XLIFF editors are available for purchase by several third-party vendors.

Manually translating the strings

Optionally, you can manually translate each string in your application from the localization toolkit. You can also adjust repeated strings that are homographs (words that have the same spelling but different meanings, such as the word wind ).

The Details tab of the localization package definition includes a Translation Status panel, which lists the number of translation items in the various translation states. For more information, see Reviewing the translationsIf you click a number, the Localization Item Details dialog box as shown in the following figure is displayed with translation details about the localization items for the selected state.
