Max. and min. length restrictions (so far only supported for XLIFF 1.2 import files; also works across all segments of a trans-unit). Length restriction can be

  • character based (number of characters)
  • pixel based (number of pixel for a defined font and font size; used for translation of display texts)

Settings for a task can be done in the task-template.xml and pixel-mapping.xml (which must be included in the task's import-ZIP). Details see below.

Default settings must be provided in the config. Details see below.

Settings for Length Restrictions

General settings are  set in the task-template. These can be overwritten by each trans-unit.

  • If maxNumberOfLines is set, maxLength refers to the length of each line, otherwise maxLength refers to the trans-unit (which might span multiple segments).
  • maxNumberOfLines must refer to the lines in a single segment only! Trans-units must not span multiple segments then!

Settings for pixel-mapping

The mapping of characters and their pixel-lengths can be given:

  • in pixel-mapping.xlsx
  • or in import-XLF-files;
  • default values are set in the config.

Each segment will check if there is a specific mapping for its import-file. If settings for the file do not exist, the general task-settings are used. If those don't exist, the config is used.

Example for pixel-mapping.xlsx:



    <trans-unit id="4" translate5:maxNumberOfLines="2" minwidth="100" maxwidth="300" size-unit="pixel">
<source>Example for maximal 2 lines, minwidth 100, maxWidth 300.</source>
