Pivot file

To add a pivot file to a task (bilingual files), the name of the pivot file and the name of the work-file must be the same. For all other work-files, where the pivot file name does not match the work-file name, no pivot will be assigned to the task.

For non-bilingual files (files handled by Okapi), when the work-file and the pivot-file names are compared, '.xlf' extension will be appended to the work-file name. 

Ex: if the work-file name is "test.html" the pivot file-name should be "test.html.xlf".
