Once receive the confirming letter from Client, the following steps shall be followed for HO file preparing.
Step1 - Download LSPKG files from MLP
Step2 - Create project folder via Warp
Step3 - LSPKG files pre-processing
Step4 - Word count analysis
Step5 - Create HO package
Step6 - Send HO mail
Step1 - Download LSPKG files from MLP
Select the right task build on the opening page.
Right click, choose “Download Handoff”
Choose the right task and language, click “OK”.
Set a project folder, name with the downloaded task name in;
Open WaRP, Fill in the task name, and select the corresponding language codes to create the phase structure.
Step3 – LSPKG files pre-processing
Copy the file downloaded from MLP to project folder---put under subfolder “01_in”.
Rename the file.
(This process is to avoid the languages mess; we always need to add the language code in the file name, e.g. StoreBingApp_af.lspkg);
Select the “rename” bar on WaRP, choose the right languages and click “go”. The tool will rename all selected languages files.
After Rename, can do the word count first. There would be 1 file save error in LsTool when saving custom2, but after 1 or 2 min, re-save will succeed.
Add filter to the file.
Open the file in LStool → choose “new strings” on the left column(or Translation Needed) → click “Set Custom Field”
Set custom field to “Custom 2”, filter name usually use the issuing date, e.g. “0816”
Click OK and save.
The same action need to be done to: “Auto_Translation”, “Updated_Strings”
Choose “Translation needed”
Select “Not Ready” to double check, if the mark has been done for all need to be translated strings.
Open a LSPKG file from the download file.
Create a filter as below.
The generated filter will be in : “c:\Program Files\LocStudio\Filters\”
Word counts analyses: it will create the statistics.xlsx file in the …\01_in\<Language> \statistics.xlsx.
You can also use “Tracking sheet merge” to get the total word count analysis for all languages. (Both needed)
Warp will copy the source files from …\01_in\<Language>\... folder to …\02_handoff\<Language>\translatables\...
Warp will copy the source files from …\01_in\<Language>\ statistics.xlsx to …\02_handoff\<Language>\ analysis\...
Copy Reference (the filter) (Mess Copy Select)
If there are some reference files (for example, the filter) used for all the languages, "Mass Copy Select" will help us to complete this work. You don’t need to manual copy it into every language folder.
Manual copies the reference file into one language folder, eg. \\store\phases2\39_Microsoft_Bing\Phases\HO008_AppEx_Apps-Localization_0816\02_handoff\af\reference\
In "Language" window, please select the languages codes that you want Warp to help you to get the reference file from the source language folder (…\02_handoff\en-gb\reference\).
In “Mass Copy Selection”, select the “Reference”
In “Source Language”, please select the language code that you have manual copied the reference file.
NonLip, am & ti should give them an xlsx file of all the strings with custom 2 strings yellow.
Zip HO package
Warp will help you zip the handoff package; the package will be named as …\02_handoff\<Language>\Taskname-<Language>.zip
Step6 – Send HO mail
Edit HO mail template in Warp.
When edit the template, pay special attention to the Deadline, instruction and deliverable conditions. Those items must be edited correctly. When finish editing, save the template.
Mail Subject: MS_Bing_<Task>_<Language>
In “attachment” window, please fill in the zip path. Please note in the path we need to use the placeholder <Language>. If there is no attachment you could write “NONE” instead.
In “Deadline” window, if you have set the placeholder ( *deadline* ) in your email template, please fill in the deadline here. Otherwise you can put anything here. It will not appear in the handoff email.
In “task” window, please fill in the task name there, it will be in the email subject as: MS_Bing_<Task>_<Language>
Click “OK” , the drafted mails will be generated in your mail box.
Copy to FTP
In case of the attached file’s volume is too big, you could choose to upload to FTP and inform vendor to download from the FTP.
Warp will help you to copy the handoff package to vendors' FTP.
Regarding the vendors’ ftp path, you can edit it in tab “Edit”, select “Languages”.ate the phase structure.
