Restricting segment text length

Sometimes the length of the translated text has to be restricted (E.g. Length of a Tweet).

XLIFF the localization industry standard interchange format supports an optional attribute maxwidth.

Cloudwords interprets this attribute when populated to refer to the number of maximum characters that can be defined for a particular target translation unit. OneReview enforces this interpretation when a user is editing a particular segment. 

- The user will not be able to type or edit beyond the number of maximum characters.(No message displayed).

- The user can copy and paste text. If its greater than maxwidth then copy and paste will not be allowed.

- If the translated text from a LSP has exceeded the maxWidth then an error message will be displayed.
