I would like to open a specific folder with snag files into the library to translate them.
I'm having a hard time finding the specific snag files in the library that I need to create the .xliff file. 

Thank you.

How about adding a tag "Translate" to those images that need Translating?  Then you could look for tagged items.  Once they are translated you could change the tag to "French" " German" etc

We are talking about 100 of snag files previously created. Can I bulk tag them from a folder?

So does it mean that there is no way to go to a specific folder to select the snag files that I need to translate?

The Library is organised into virtual folders by date.  There is, of course, nothing to stop you manually saving captures into a translation folder, but the library is auto maintained for you so is less hassle.

I tried and it's showing the same files an not the ones I created in the translation folder. Can we disable the auto maintenance?

If you go into  the library you can select one or more days or months to display all images for the chosen period.

Then you can use standard windows techniques to select multiple images (Ctrl+Click, Shift+Click).  Once they are selected you can apply a tag to all of them in one go.

Then, to find all that have been tagged "translate" go to the tags section of the library and choose the one you want.



To remove a tag from a selected image click on tag in the bottom left corner, right click teh tag name in the popout panel and select "Delete Tag"

The files are in a share drive and the  library is not able to detect them. I put the files in the Library Location and the Library is still not detecting them. Is there another way?

Hi Carms,

If they aren't in the library, you can open them through File > Open and Snagi files should then appear in the library.

I just added some files to the library by opening them, and they were recognized by Snagit. I'm using Snagit 2018.1.1. If you have troubles I'd be happy to walk you through the process and understand your frustration here. We definitely want to make sure the translation feature works for you.

Like Paul mentioned, if you tag your captures as you create them, that's the best route. But you bring up a good point, we should consider a way to import to the library and give the option to tag all Snag files imported. Especially for uses cases like yours were they were kept in the library or were worked on by multiple people.
