Send Multiple Targets for Translation in a Single File

The new multi-select target option allows you to create a MadCap Lingo project based on any number of targets, rather than just a single target. When you finish in the New Project Wizard, MadCap Lingo will import only the files or segments necessary for those targets.

New Tool Bar Allows You to Show or Hide Non-Breaking Hyphens and Spaces

A non-breaking hyphen is useful for phone numbers, web addresses, email addresses or headlines you don’t want broken onto two lines. A new Local Toolbar button makes it easy to turn on and off the option to view non-breaking hyphens and spaces.

  • Non-breaking spaces are a high circle: nonºbreakingºspaces
  • Non-breaking hyphens are a line: non–breaking–hyphens
  • Spaces are a dot between the words: spaces·are·a·dot·between·the·words

Import Alternate Tag Segments in Translation Memories

A new field in the import dialog allows you to import alternate tag segments in TMX files. The consolidated alternate tag segments in the imported TMX can produce better match results.

Version 10 Release: June, 2016

Thanks to MadCap Lingo, I can now use all files, such as topics, variables, cascading style sheets (CSS) and snippets, without creating any filters to read them. I can translate any parts I need without viewing scripts. MadCap Lingo makes it easy to rebuild Flare projects into the translation.

New Integration with MadCap Flare Streamlines
Translation Workflows

The new multilingual publishing feature in Flare allows for multiple languages to be published in a single output for both print and online content. Added integration includes:

  • Project Linking and Sync
    MadCap Lingo projects are now easily linked within Flare; a sync option performs a diff against the source Flare project
  • Index Keyword and Glossary Term Sort Orders
    Set an alphabetical sort order to indexes and glossaries, particularly useful when a keyword begins with a symbol or if you are using character sets that should be sorted phonetically
  • Font Mapping
    Ensure suitable font usage by mapping source project fonts to supported fonts in your target languages
  • Language Skins
    Used for online outputs, the language skin is used to display the interface in a specific language and control some text-based items such as cross-reference links
