- The utility identifier is: xliffsplitting

The XLIFF Splitting utility allows you to break down an XLIFF document with more than one <file> element into as many separate document as there are <file> elements.

The smaller files are created in the same folder as their corresponding original file. The filenames are the same with the addition of the file marker string and the file number just before the file extension. For example, if the file marker is "_PART":


is split into:


If files with such names already exist they will be overwritten without warning.

Note also that any existing files with the same name pattern in addition to the file created by the process will not be removed. This means that if you run the utility twice in a row on the same file, the first time splitting it into 5 parts and the second time splitting it into 3 parts, at the end of the second process you will still see 5 files, but only the 3 first will have been created by the second process, you should delete manually any additional files.

You can put back together files that have been split by using the XLIFF Concatenation utility.
