Prepare for translation
prepare a form design for translation, generate XLIFF identifiers
for the translatable text. In Designer, the identifiers are generated
when you select the Create Translation identifiers When Saving option.
When selected, the option generates a unique XLIFF ID for each text
string the first time you save the form design. The XLIFF identifiers
are visible in the XML source when you save a form design in the Adobe
XML Form (.xdp) format.
When you modify and save the form design, Designer compares the
identifier, and string combinations to determine whether any changes
were made since the last time the form design was saved. Changes
can include changed text, field deletion, or field insertion. If
the text changed since it last saved, Designer updates the text
when you copy an object that already has an identifier so that a duplicate
identifier is not created.
Designer includes two examples of Extensible Stylesheet Language
Transformations (XSLT) files. The extractstrings.xslt file
extracts the XLIFF IDs and the mergestrings.xslt file creates
a new version of the form design in the new language. The examples
are installed with Designer in the installation directory under
