Files in Memsource can either be split or joined. Splitting files can be useful, especially when you need more than one Linguist to translate a file at the same time. This has no effect on the resulting completed target file, but it does let each Linguist get their own "virtual" file to work on. Once the Split feature is used, it cannot be undone. However, it is possible to view all the files together in the Editors by using the Join feature.
Join Files for the Desktop Editor
Step 1: In your Memsource project, select the files you want to join (the files must have the same target language).
Step 2: Click on the Download button, and select one of the bilingual file formats (e.g. Bilingual MXLIFF) in the submenu.
Step 3: Make sure Join files is selected and then click on Download.
Once you do this, a joined file will be downloaded to your desktop. You can work with the joined file just like any other Memsource bilingual file—there are no limitations. Each job will be separated by a bar which includes the job’s number and filename (as they appear in Memsource).
Example of joined jobs in the Editors
Please note that the joined file will not be displayed in your project. It is a virtual file that simply consists of multiple translation files. To analyze the joined file or assign a Linguist to it, simply select the individual files that form the joined file and perform the required operation.
Join Files for the Web Editor
Step 1: In a Memsource project, select the files you want to join (the files must have the same target language).
Step 2: Click on one of the file names.
Like the Desktop Editor, each job in the Web Editor will be separated by a bar which includes the job’s number and filename. (See the screenshot above.)
