NEW Configuring order forms: When setting default custom field values. Hierarchical drop down custom fields do not properly remember default values.

Default values were not taken into account if the custom field is an hierarchical drop down list (i.e. shown as 2 separate pick lists). The problem has been fixed.

Client Orders, Project Managers, Clients - WM-1566

NEW Populate invoice details from an Excel file - And calculate cost on top

In Wordbee invoices are typically created automatically from word counts and client or supplier prices. We added an alternative possibility: Upload an Excel file with word count details directly into an invoice. Such Excel files may come from a third party TMS or your own systems.
This extracts: Document names, Languages, Word counts, Pre-translations, Fuzzy matches etc. Costs are calculated from client price list and service details.

Job Management, Project Managers, Clients, Administrators - WM-1482

NEW QA Term Check rule: Eliminate false positives by accepting minor variations in the translation of the term (such as plural vs singular)

We have added a new option to the Term Checker QA-rule. This rule looks up terms in a source text and checks if the translator used the exact same term translations. The new option let you specify if translated terms must be identical or just very similar to the translations found in the term base. The latter will then not flag differences such as plural/singular as problem cases.
This helps to eliminate a lot of false positives.

NEW Email reminders for deadlines: New project workflow option to remind suppliers by email

The workflow settings of a project got a new feature (See "Workflow & Suppliers" page of project). The new option "Send email alerts to suppliers when deadline approaches" sends deadline reminders to suppliers. For example 1 hour, 4 hours or days prior to the deadline.
You can customize the layout and content of these emails under "Settings" > "Email notifications".

Job Management, Project Managers - WM-1500

NEW New Follow-up order workflow added

The current workflow and order TR+REV+KL is eliminated and removed from the order form. The order form is expanded by a field called “Referenz-Auftrags-ID” (referenced order ID) which allows each client by dropdown to connect an order to an earlier order irrespective of its status, except canceled orders (i.e. client can choose incomplete orders too, in this case, no final file would be added but only source file and intermediary versions would be added only if available). A mouse over help box will be added to the field.

Client Orders, Project Managers, Clients - WM-1330

IMPROVED Small fixes for the new sentiment analysis feature

We have fixed two small issues with the new Sentiment Analysis feature. This fixes initial extracted segments showing sentiments as outdated, and ensures that sentiment analysis results can be displayed regardless of the OS and browser used in the translation editor.

FIX API / Intermittent errors with workflow completion post-operations when triggered by API: Consolidation and Delivery

When multiple or all workflows in a project are completed at approximately the same time, it may happen that one of the post-completion actions of one or more of these workflows may fail. This problem has been resolved by ensuring that these actions run one after the other so as to not interfere between each other (they operate on the same project and memory data).

NEW Messages added to a job which is a job opening are now sent to all vendors (except with inactive jobs).

When an internal user adds a message to a job opening, the system now email-notifies all the suppliers that had been invited to the job opening. On the other hand, if a supplier replies back or asks a question, the message is sent to the project manager only (and not all the other suppliers).
Special notes: No emails will be sent for inactive jobs. An internal user is considered supplier if he/she is also invited to the opening.

Job Management, Project Managers - WM-1501

NEW Query optimizations in word count and translation finder when there are multiple source language variants to search

Customers whose platform is hosted in our European Azure data center will experience faster memory searching e.g. in the editor's translation finder. Search results were improved in cases when a memory contains multiple variants of a language. For example, a memory containing texts for "en-GB", "en-US", "en" at the same time.

GlobalSearch, Resources, Translators, Project Managers - WM-1476

NEW New workflow option: decide whether workflows be created with an active (default) or inactive status when new files are added to a project

When new files are added to an ongoing project via Beebox, the order form or manually, the system creates workflows and starts them immediately (i.e. emails sent to suppliers etc.). The new option allows you to create the workflow and set it up as "inactive", so managers can validate the job assignments and other configurations before they kick of the proposals. The new option is named "Workflow start" and it is available in the worflow template of any Codyt project.

NEW Global search settings: New option to hide the "Include translated segments" option from users

Users can by default decide whether to remove untranslated segments or not from search results. By default the option is not ticked and thus shows translated segments only. We now give the administrator under "Settings" > "Global Search" the possibility to remove this option entirely. Users then experience the default behavior (translated segments only).

GlobalSearch, Administrators - WM-1495

NEW The switch over date for the new translation editor is extended to January 1st 2019

To give more time to our users to plan for the switch over from the old to the new editor, we have extended the transition period. The old editor will now be turned of on January 1st 2019.
This comes in handy as well, since we will add a wide range of performance and functionality enhancements to the new editor in the last quarter.
A big thank you to all users who gave us valuable feedback and suggestions for improvement. We took notice of it all and work hard to make it the best and fastest editor in the market. Stay tuned!
