  1. Hi Janusz,
    is there a way to specify the source language for the translation? We are building the exchange file partly with English and partly with German source language…
    Kind regards, Thomas

  2. Currently you can select other language as original (Alternative Original) only via Exchange Wizard in GUI. I’ll ask our developer about adding support of alternative original to SlMake.

  3. Can I specify “alternative original” to be included to exchange file? This would help in the first step!

  4. I’d be happy to get to know that it will be possible with SlMake too – I just now try to confirm management to upgrade to enterprise licence…

  5. Can I exclude some sources from going into the exchange package by command line switch similar to scan action?
