I am developing a bilingual application (base English translated to french) and I noticed something weird when exporting/importing to another workspace.
First, my application is flagged as requiring synchronization after an import. Yes, I did check that it was not flagged right before the export. I did choose Export Translations.
Secondly, when I look at the translated application in the new workspace, my Region Names are not translated anymore (in english instead of french). When I cmpare the 2 Translation Repositories (using the Manually Edit Translation Repository) I lost all Region Names entries (Column Description = Region name).
Thirdly, when again comparing the 2 Translation Repositories, I have the same number of Strings and Distinct Strings by if I group by Column Descriptions the sub-totals differ and I don't even have the same distinct Column Descriptions.
My test was done with my development workspace and a test workspace (where I deleted all application prior to my test) in the same instance.
Anybody had these problems?
I am using 4.1.1.00.23 on the Oracle Database 11g Express Edition.
- Download and install the XLIFF transformation tool
- Upload your current XLIFF file (the one that works in the development environment)
- Transform the XLIFF file by entering the new application ID (the ID of the application in your test environment) and the application offset. The calculation of the offset can be found in the blog post.
I use APEX version 4.1.1.00.23. I guess they lied :P
