Now it’s easier to manage and accept projects on the go with the Memsource mobile app. The mobile app gives users the access and flexibility to manage translations, and to respond to project issues directly from a mobile phone. READ MORE →
Previously in Memsource, workflow steps could only move forward. If a revision by the translator was needed after a reviewer made changes to the text, there would typically be another subsequent workflow step for that (i.e. Translation – Revision – Translator’s Revision). From now on, BIZ Team, BIZ Ultimate and Unlimited edition users can benefit from the Reject Job feature.
Admins and Project managers can enable the Reject Job option for individual linguists upon creation or when editing them. Linguist users that have this option selected will have the functionality enabled. When they accept a job, they will be able to assess the quality of the translation without making any changes to the text. If they think the quality isn’t good enough, they can change the job status to Rejected by Linguist and send it back to the translator for re-translation. The linguist in the previous workflow step automatically receives Job Rejected notification and the job status is automatically changed from Completed to Emailed.
Please, keep in mind that changes from a higher workflow step aren’t automatically propagated to lower workflow step. If a proofreader makes changes in Revision step and then sends the job back to the Translation step, the translator will need to filter the changes in the editor and insert them manually.
All Memsource users can select their preferred UI language not only on Cloud but in the desktop Memsource Editor 6.201.6 as well. The language can be changed when navigating to Tools → Preferences → Appearance. We currently support 15 languages: Czech, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, German, Greek, English, Finnish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish.
Starting from desktop Memsource Editor version 6.201.6 it is possible to insert symbols and special characters into translation. The character map will open when pressing Ctrl + Shift + L or navigating to Edit → Insert Symbol → More Symbols. Subsets are supported for easier and quicker navigation through different categories of symbols, such as Mathematical Operators, Currency Symbols, Greek letters etc.
The feature will be implemented in the Web editor in the coming weeks.
Up until now when users needed to check a file in progress, they had to run the full QA which could give them lots of false positives (e.g. warnings for unconfirmed segments, empty target etc.). Partial QA gives users freedom to run QA checks they currently need and leave the rest of the checks for later. The individual QA checks can be selected/deselected after clicking on the downwards pointing arrow next to Run on the QA pane. Before setting the file as completed, it will be necessary to run the full QA with all project default checks.
The feature is currently implemented in desktop Memsource Editor 6.201.6 and will be added to Web editor in the coming weeks.
The desktop Memsource Editor is now available with a real-time in-context preview for Microsoft Word, HTML, XML with XSL template and DITA files. The in-context preview allows translators to preview the translation in its native format with real-time changes while translating. This eliminates the need to download the original or translated document separately and provides an instant context for the segments currently being translated.
