Creating Branches—Git

When you are working in Git, you can create branches. Branches create a new development area for a file that is separate from the original. You can use branches so multiple translators can work in individual workspaces, or you can use them as a space to make major changes in your project without affecting the original (e.g., when translating large sections of text, using new translation memories or machine translation). Even if others will not be working on a file, you can still create branches if you want to edit your file and then refer back to its previous versions.
