Target lines missing in XLIFF files

I wanted to use the translation tool in Lectora online. I did this a few months ago and when exporting to XLIFF I got pairs of lines, "source" and "target" - worked perfectly. Today I wanted to start translating a big title, exported to XLIFF - but now I only get the source lines. Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong (I am quite new to lectora).

    Hi Jonas (@jonashelgason)

    We found out it was best practice to leave out the <target> elements. If you do not add a translation (target element) then it will be unchanged after you import it back.

    Most translation tools will add in the target tag for you.
