1.5 Day Workshop for
beginning Language Engineers / technical Project Managers

Date: April 15th - April 16th, 2020

Number of participants: minimum 3 / maximum 5

The workshop will be held in English.
The German workshop is held the week after, from April 22nd to 23rd, 2020.

XML and text-based formats are being used more and more in the translation process. They often require specific settings in our translation tools or the creation of a new filter alltogether. Sometimes pre- or post-processing of the files is necessary.
The workshop is geared towards beginners in the field of technical project management / language engineering and provides many examples and exercises to help you get started with XML, XLIFF, XPATH and REGEX.

Some items on the agenda:

  • Introcudtion to XML (elements, attributes, entitoes, validation)
  • XML with conditions, HTML, length restrictions
  • XML-based formats like XLIFF or TMX
  • Navigation within XML files through XPATH
  • Pseudo translation for testing filters
  • Introduction to REGEX (regular expressions) specifically for the translation process
  • Use of REGEX for search&replace, import of text-based files, quality control and conversion of text into tags

You can find the full agenda here Workshop-Agenda

We will use memoQ und SDL Trados Studio to work on the files, but many of the steps described can also be used in other translation tools

Prerequisite: Working knowledge of memoQ and/or SDL Trados Studio would be useful.
Participants bring their own laptops.

Price per person: 780 Euro (plus German VAT), meals included

Location: zaac office, Bendenweg 101, 53121 Bonn, Germany
