This topic focuses on importing a Lingo project from source control. You might use this method, for example, if you are working on a project with several other translators and another member of the team has placed the Lingo project in Git.
- Do one of the following, depending on the part of the user interface you are using:
Ribbon Select File > New Project > Import Project.
- Source Control Explorer From the View ribbon, open the Source Control Explorer. From the drop-down, select the Home pane. Click Import Project.
The Import Project from Source Control Wizard dialog opens.
- From the drop-down, select Git.
In the Remote drop-down, enter the remote repository where the project is located.
Note: You may need to obtain this information from your system administrator.
- In the Name field, enter your name.
- In the Email field, enter your email address.
From the Save Per drop-down, select how you want to save your files.
- User Saves the files in your local folder. Select this option if you are working with other tools (e.g., Tortoise) or if you want to use the same user identity across multiple projects.
- Project Saves the files locally to your project. Select this option if you want to use different identities for each project.
- Click Next.
Next to the Project field, click Browse. The Browse Source Control Files dialog opens. (You may need to log in with your user name and password.)
(Optional) If the remote you selected in Step 3 requires an SSH certificate, the Certificate Specification dialog opens. In the dialog, do the following:
- In the Public key field, enter your public SSH key, or use to browse for the key on your network.
- In the Private key field, enter your private SSH key, or use to browse for the key on your network.
If you want Flare to remember your key information so you do not need to enter it again later, select the check box next to Save certificate information.
- Find and click on the Lingo project file
(LIPRJ)that you want to import. (You may need to log in with your user name and password.)
- Click OK.
- Click Next.
- In the Project name field, the name of the project being imported is displayed. It is recommended that you leave the name as it is, especially if you are working with other
userson the project. However, you can enter a different project name if you want.
- In the Project folder field, either accept the default location for the new project or click to browse for and select a folder.
- Click Finish. The project is imported and loaded into Lingo.
