> A segment marked as translate='no' is a content that for some reason is non
> to be translated. If it is joined with another segment it probably should
> remain non-translatable.
> While the parts outside segments are content that are made non-
> translatable/ignorable by some segmentation and simplification mechanisms,
> basically to clean up the segment content. When joined with a segment such

> segmentation2.xlf you expect unsegmented.xlf.
> So in summary:
> - <segment> to store the segment (and some of those may be non-
> translatable)
> - <some-element-name> (<ignorable> was just fine for me) to store the
> parts outside the segments.
> Both at the same level, under <unit>.
