In the Translation Job life cycle, once the translated XML from the Service Provider has been uploaded to the Import folder on the server, the system automatically associates it with its various translation jobs, and it is then ready to be imported into the Library. Translation jobs in this state display Ready for Import in the Status column in the Translation Jobs list.
Importing is the last step in the translation job life cycle.
To import a translation job:
- From the Translation Jobs list, select one or more jobs. The jobs that are ready for importing show the status as Ready for Import.
- In the ribbon, choose Translation Jobs > Import, or right-click the job or jobs and then choose Import.
The XML is imported. The modified local variant objects get the release state for imports. The state of the translation job is Completed.
What happens to the files after successful import
To save space on the server following a successful import, the associated XML files, zip files, and the job folders (which contain all of the image files) in both Export and Import folders are removed immediately. The log file stays with the translation job record.
