Problem when processing translations using Translations application

Andy Bochmann asked on January 10, 2020 00:48


I'm trying to translate pages using XLF files and the Translations application. I'm able to download and upload the XLF file. When I process the translations, the page gets saved, but not translated.

I can verify that the XLF file got uploaded, because downloading it again will return the translated content.

When I click Process translations, it says "Translations were successfully imported" and the awaiting translation icon in the Pages application disappears, but as mentioned earlier, all the content is still in the default language.

I see the exact same problem in the Dancing Goat Sameple site. Translations in general work fine, as I can update the fields manually on the Content tab in the Pages application.

Thanks, Andy

How does the translated XLF file looks like? Does it contain the "target" XML elements with the translated content? For example:
< trans-unit id="documentname" >
< source >< ![CDATA[Original text]] >< /source >
< target >< ![CDATA[translated text]] >< /target >
< /trans-unit >

Thanks Juraj, that was the problem. In order to test it, I had only modified the source tag.
