  1. Fix ErrorMessage preventing MAT to save translation-files when opening XLIF from VS

    Message is The selected file type is not supported by the Editor. This type of CollectionView does not support changes to its SourceCollection from the Dispatcher thread.

    Opening MAT as standalone and loading the same XLIF resolves the issue, but isn´t very "handy"

  2. Fix crash when opening XLIFF file without <group> element

    From the XLIFF 1.2 spec, the <group> element as a child of <body> is optional.
    http://docs.oasis-open.org/xliff/v1.2/os/xliff-core.html#body

    If you try to open an xliff file which does not contain a group element, the MultiLingual Editor does not open the file, and reports an exception: "Object reference not set to an instance".

    So, this xml does NOT work :-(
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    <xliff xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:document:1.2" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance&quot; version="1.2" xsi:schemaLocation="urn:oasis:names:tc:xliff:document:1.2 xliff-core-1.2-transitional.xsd">

    <file datatype="xml" source-language="en-GB" target-language="cy" tool-id="My tool" original="file.xml">

    <header>

    <tool tool-id="My tool" tool-name="My tool" tool-version="1.0"/>

    </header>

    <body>
    <trans-unit id="Myresourcestring" translate="yes" xml:space="preserve" approved="no">
    <source>Source string</source>
    <target state="new" xml:lang="si">Target string</target>
    </trans-unit>
    </body> …

  3. Integrate strong name key signing into build process

    I am running the toolkit for a VS 2015 project and it works quite nice. The only missing thing that I need is that after setting an snk signature for the project, all satellite assemblies are not being loaded anymore.
    I know I can workaround it by a complex process of unpacking IL, injecting signature and rebuilding an assembly, but it would be really great if it worked out of the box.

  5. Better inform user in Visual Studio 2015

    I selected a project and clicked on "Tools" --> "MAT" --> "Enable selection".

    Nothing happened...
    Turned out that my Output window had to be set to

    "Show output from: Multilingual App Toolkit"

    This contained the reason:

    1> Project 'xxx' was not enabled - the project's source culture could not be determined.

    Maybe a little dialog would be helpful?

  7. Windows 10 universall apps support

    Right now we can't use this tool with windows 10 universal apps...
    "Tools>Enable Multilingual App Toolkit" is disabled when we choose win10 universal app project.

    I think that everybody knows that in a new strategy: "win10 is a new generation and it's our super innovation and so on... and other blablabla"

    It's not looks like a bug, because in the same time for windows 8.1 apps it's working.

  8. Multilingual Editor source language

    So I was busy doing translations in the Multilingual Editor.
    I was working in the Suggestions tab. Suddenly out of the blue I spotted a mistake in the Source string.
    Is there a way to edit this or mark that the Source should be checked again?

    This is handled by updating the default resource file inside Visual Studio. The source string in the related XLF files update during the next build. If the source string was already translated, the translation will remain intact, but will be will be flagged so you can review if a new translated is needed.

    Here is the blog posting that describes the notification process: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/matdev/archive/2014/02/07/multilingual-app-toolkit-v2-2-released.aspx

  9. Make a tutorial on how to incorporate MAT to Windows Phone Silverlight App

    I have been going in circles for the past week trying to add MAT to my windows phone Silverlight app
    after some effort I managed to add a Resources.resw file to the Strings\en-US folder and set its build action to PRIResource
    but when I click Enable Multilingual app toolkit I get : "At least one resource file is required before your project can be enabled by MAT"

  10. Add OneDrive support

    Instead of sharing via email or a path, add a OneDrive working directory.
    Would it be possible to add OneDrive so that there is also one version of the files? Because some files need to be emailed to 2 translators.

  12. Editor doesn't open any XLIFF file after the update to 4.0.1391.0

    I updated the Multilingual App Toolkit to the latest Beta version (4.0.1391.0) and I can't open XLIFF file anymore. I even tried to create a project from scratch and let generate new .xlf files but I always get this error:
    "The Multilingual Editor currently supports XLIFF 1.2 formats. The file open request was not XLIFF 1.2, and cannot be opened at this time."
    Of course the files are still 1.2

  13. Visualize "lowest" state of translation and/or make a state summarize tool

    When having a lot o languages and a lot of strings it isn't easy to track if everything is translated so i would love to have an indication icon next to my xlf-files showing me that I have no-translated strings in that file. An other nice feature would be an menu option to analyse the states of all my xlf-files and showing me how many strings I have for each states in each languages.

    We added has added this in two ways.
    1. Added status summary to the Editor status bar
    2. Added the Translation Status Report menu to MAT in the VS IDE. This work let you see the status of your XLF file based on the solution, project or select XLF files.

  14. Export/Import languages via command line

    I have many language files in a project.
    Actually I have to pick all the files and then export it via context menu.

    It would be great, if I can do it automatically.

    Export/import all the language file of a project and/or solution via context menu would be a good alternative too (to the command line).

  15. Include my own translations as Suggestions

    It could be good to have an option to include my own Translations (in XLF or TMX format). this may allow me to recycle available Translations I have already used in the past or translations received from colleagues.

    This is already available today.

    Importing and recycling are build it. If you right click on a XLF file, you will see the import / recycling menu. Simple selecting the XLF file (or CSV) that has the translation that you want to reuse. Be sure to check in the Recycle box at the bottom as this loosens the matches to Language and source strings, but not resource ID.

    The translation provider model is extensible so you can also build your own translation provider. This allows you to connect to any local or remote translation / TM source that you chose. To see a sample of the implementation, please look at the code on http://tausdataprovider.codeplex.com for a working sample. You will need to sign with TAUSData.net to connect, but the account is free. See: blogs.msdn.com/b/matdev/archive/2014/02/24/creating-a-3rd-party-translation-provider.aspx

  16. MAT editor should start quicker

    We have XLF files with 1000+ strings it. When double-clicking on such a file in Visual Studio, it takes 7+ seconds until the MAT editor appears. It's quite confusing if one double-clicks and nothing happens at first. Maybe load the actual XLF data asynchronously to improve app startup speeds?

  17. Search should filter list view

    When searching for a special term, it might be beneficial to by default just show the filtered results in the list view instead of showing all rows.

    While Search did not change (much), the editor does have a couple of filtering features. On the main ribbon next to the search, you can filter based on translation state which will limit the view to only the translation states selected.

    In addition, Ribbon’s Filter tab will allow you to input filter parameters similar to that of search. This filter will limit the view to only the items that match the input.

  18. Traduction Accuracy

    Hi I'm using the multilingual toolkit and it lacks consistency from the www.bing.com/translator. when I'm translating to spanish, I check the bing translator and it works pretty fine. But the Multilingual app toolkit doesn't have it's accuracy and it's embarrasing the level of translations it makes, Example:

    WORD IN ENGLISH EXPECTED ACTUAL TRANSLATION

    -Today -Hoy -Hoy en día
    -Opened -Abierto -Abrir
    -Adult -Adulto -Contenido adulto
    -Kids -Niños -Para niños
    -Artworks -Obra de arte -Ilustración

    and so on....

    Can you make the multilingual work as the bing translator web page works? Thanks.

  19. Order of sorting translation state is inconsistent

    When clicking on the header of the translation state column, the sorted order should be:


    1. New

    2. Needs review

    3. Translated

    4. Final

    5. Signed off

    (same as in the combo box), but it is:


    1. Final

    2. Needs review

    3. New

    4. Signed off

    5. Translated

  20. Going to next search result should select row

    When working in the translation editor, I decided to change the translation for a specific word. Therefore I want to quickly go to all occurrences in the source strings and change the translation. Right now, clicking next/prev does show the correct row in the list view but the text in the source/translation edit fields does not change. Therefore I always have to press next, then click on the row, then click on the translation textbox to set focus.
