Segment length limit

Smartcat

The segment length limit feature in the Smartcat Editor cannot be applied to more than 60 segments at a time. If more than 60 segments are selected, an error message is displayed.

XLIFF file processing
April 26, 2022
Handling segments with identical target and source
XLIFF formats
Smartcat

When uploading XLIFF files, some applications can automatically insert the current source value into the target field. This created issues with the file translation workflow, as the existing translation text was imported by default and committed to the Translation Memory.
To resolve this problem, we have provided another option in the Insert translation from file parameter for XLIFF files in addition to All targets and Do not import. The new option is called When target is different from source. It is selected by default and instructs Smartcat to ignore translations in segments where the target is identical with the source.
