Changing a Source File Reference

 

Overview

At times it may become necessary to change the reference (name and/or location) of a source file that is already part of a translation project (and that has already been translated).  For example, the name and/or location of a source file may have changed making it necessary to update the reference.

 

Previously, if a source file name or the location of a file has changed the only way to update the reference within RC-WinTrans is to remove the (current, old) source file from the translation project and add the (newly named/placed) source to the translation project.  This caused any existing translations to go lost and the file needed to be translated again.  As of Version 8.7.5.2 RC-WinTrans provides the option to change the reference to a source file directly in the application without disturbing any of the file's data (existing translations).
