Editing a bundle of segments in a file

You can edit a bundle by changing the number of segments in it.

You can split files into bundles, edit the bundles, and merge them, even after:

  • the file workflow has been started.

  • the Linguist has started working on the relevant file/bundle.


If you want to assign an LSP to a file workflow step, you cannot split the file into bundles in the relevant step. All segments in the file, in the relevant workflow step, must be assigned to the relevant LSP.

Example 35. Limitation to splitting files into bundles

If the file consists of 100 segments, you cannot assign 50 segments, in the Translate step, to your internal Linguist and 50 to an LSP. All 100 segments in this workflow step must go to the relevant LSP.

However, the LSP can then split the file into bundles in their XTM Cloud instance.

To edit a bundle of segments in a file:
  1. For the relevant project, open the Project Editor > workflow_icon.svg Workflow tab screen.

  2. Select the relevant file. Below the relevant file name, select the bundle that you want to edit. In the right-hand side text field, enter a new number of segment for the relevant bundle.

    Example 36. Editing a bundle of segments

    Your file has been split into 2 bundles: the 1st one consisted of segments 1–6, and the other one of segments 7–12. Now, you want to add some segments to the first bundle, so you change 6 to 9. As a result, the first bundle now consists of segments 1-9 and the second one has been adjusted automatically to contain segments 10-12.

  3. Click away from the box. XTM Cloud adjusts the number and size of bundles automatically.

  4. Select Save to let the system refresh the view.

  5. Assign Linguists to the new segment bundles.

  6. At the bottom of the page, select Save.
