Modifying Mixed Source Tokens

Important: if you cannot see the mixed-source token you are looking for, use the Update tokens list button at the top right of the languages and translations manager.

 

Mixed source tokens have different translations for a given language, depending on an index position.

 

For example, the weekday token [ddd] requires a translation for all the possible weekdays for each language. Q++Studio then decides that for a given day [ddd] will be replaced by "Mon" rather than "Wed".

 

Other examples of mixed source tokens are the 12 month names and the 4 seasons. For a discussion of the use of mixed source tokens, see mixed source tokens.

 

When translating mixed source tokens it is important to use the correct index positions. The correct index positions are given on the column to the right where the English translation of the current token is displayed.

 

Care must be taken since there are some minor inconsistencies in the value of the first index position. For example the token [dddd] has indexes running from 0-6, while the token [mmmm] has indexes running from 1-12.

 

If the language for which you are setting token translations has characters not available on your keyboard, click on the ellipsis to display the character selection dialog.
