I have already translated the texts of my website in Trados Studio. Now I started using WPML and I cannot figure out how to export a xliff file that has not specified a target language (I don't want one file for DE-EN and another for DE-SE, I just want the source (German), so it fits the project I've set up in Trados with both target languages and so I can use the translation memory.)

Is this possible?

Thank you very much!

Hi Carlos,

Thank you for your answer.

Unfortunately, I could not find the answer in the article you linked to. Maybe I was not clear enough in my question? I wonder if it is possible to export a XLIFF file that has not defined a target language.

Thank you!
Best regards,
Anne Goergens

Hi Anne,
Thank you for your message.

Unfortunately there is no possible to export a XLIFF file without a target language defined.
