Final touches in WordPress (optional)


Trados note:

The XLIFF file puts all the content for each field in the same translation unit. As a result, some line-break tags appear inside the editable text. TagEditor will slightly reduce the word-count due to this. Make sure that these line-breaks are preserved in the translation, so that the translated content is formatted correctly.
