Input Document

This dialog box allows you to select an input document.

When you select a new input file, the program tries to automatically find a default configuration. It also scans the start of the document to try to guess the encoding, as well as the source and target locales.

Some multilingual documents, such as TMX files, may have several target locales. In that case, their codes are displayed as a list in the target locale field. You must select one among them.

Input document — Enter the full path of the input document. You can use the browse button to navigate through the file system.

Configuration — Enter the filter configuration id to associate with the input file. Click on the browse button to open the Filter Configurations dialog where you can select a configuration among the ones currently available.

Encoding — Enter the name of the encoding to use with this input document. Note that, depending on the file format, this encoding may or may not be used. For example: the encoding of XML documents can normally be auto-detected, so if the input document uses the XML Filter or the XML Stream Filter it will likely not use the encoding you defined here.

Source locale — Enter the code for the source locale of the input file.

Target locale — Enter the code for the target locale of the input file.

Accept all next documents with their defaults — If the dialog box is open to process a list of files, you may have this option available. If you check this option all documents after the one currently defined will be accepted automatically, with their auto-discovered parameters. In other words, this option is the equivalent to keep pressing on the OK button as long as new input document are presented. Note that the process will stop if an error occurs in the parameters.

Use this option with caution, only on a list of files that can be safely auto-discovered, otherwise you may end up with some documents with incorrect parameters.
