Passolo 2011: Inconsistent translation http://www.josecotes.com/passolo-2011-inconsistent-translation/ http://www.josecotes.com/passolo-2011-inconsistent-translation/#comments Mon, 01 Jun 2015 20:51:50 +0000 http://www.josecotes.com/?p=66 So, how and where is that option to perform inconsistency translation checks in Passolo 2011?

Open your package/project and go to String
passinc1

Click on Check… and click on Options…
passinc2

You will need to select one or both of these options depending on your needs:
passinc3

Inconsistent translation: There is a pre-translation available for the source string, but this does not correspond with the translation used.

Inconsistent translation within project: The same logic as above applies, but it is not only VS the available TM, but also a cross check within files.
