Q: How the source file updates affect the existing translation and proofreading tasks?
A: After the source file update, the list of source strings included in the task will be updated the following way:

  • The strings removed from the source file during the update will be removed from the task.
  • The modified strings marked with the Keep Translations option will appear in the task with the new modified text.
  • The newly added strings won’t affect the existing task in any way.

If the source file is restored to the revision, containing the removed strings, they will reappear in the task.
