Is it possible to stop the target text of resources marked as "Changed Source" being written to target files. I'd ideally like those resources marked as changed source to write the source text to the target file rather than the erroneous translation.



I know I can mark them with the exclude attribute is this the only way?

By the way I'm using WinTrans X8 and translating Visual Studio *.rc files

Hi,


there is no way to keep an existing target text from being written when the item has the status "changed source."

This is by design since we expect that a "changed source" item will be updated before creating the (final) translated target file.


>> I know I can mark them with the exclude attribute is this the only way?

Yes. This is the only way RC-WinTrans will use the original source text in the target file.

Ok.

Is it possible to set a translation units attribute to "exclude from translation" via WinTrans' COM interface?

Yes. Use a TU's "Translate" attribute.

Example (VBA code):
. Dim TU As TransUnit
. Set TU = RCWinTrans.ActiveTransUnit
. TU.Translate = False

See also the online help under "class TransUnit":
http://www.rc-wintrans.schaudin.com/vbahelp/

Note: We have a free VBA add-on ("Extra Functions") available for downloading.
It adds some useful functionality to the RC-WinTrans application. The VBA code
used to create the add-on is open source.
