Working with XLIFF files in Beebox and Wordbee

by | Oct 2, 2015

In this latest video, Peter Argondizzo shows how the Beebox can be used to process large volumes of files easily prior to sending them into a translation process. He takes some 700 files, lets the Beebox identify unique segments and finally “compresses” the content into a few “human-sized” xliff jobs. These jobs are then sent to a TMS.

The Beebox is both a CMS translation middleware as well as a tool to automate the preparation and pre-translation of large content volumes. It talks to translation management systems by means of xliff hot-folders or direct connections as is the case with Wordbee Translator.
