NEW [Reports] New report available: Back translation workflow (S711)

We have developed a new report (S711) to show all language versions for both source and target along with the comments on segments and revisions. This new feature is especially useful to project managers who need to gather all the information available for each file and language pair.

Report S711 is available for admin and managers who have the corresponding access rights. You can access the report either in the Reports section or in the Documents menu of the Editor ( Export> Create report > “Document translations, revisions and comments” ).

IMPROVED [Projects]: Creating a new project and presetting languages

When creating a new project, the languages are preset from the most recently created project for convenience. We have improved on this behavior to preset by preference from recent project that has the current user assigned as manager. This is helpful in environments with many project managers each working in different languages.

Languages, Project Managers - WM-6508

File Formats, Translators, Project Managers - WM-6398

FIX [Editor Search Bar]: Searching by Last Update Date not working properly

The Last Update Date filter in the Search Bar used to display the dates according to the timezone. This prevented users from filtering segments by a specific period. The filter has been improved.

Editor, Search Bar, Translators, Project Managers, Administrators, Freelancers - WM-6674

When configuring the options for "Do not check locked segments", the system doesn't check the locked segments. If the option is unchecked, the system shall check the locked segment.

IMPROVED [Supported languages] Zapotec language has been added to Wordbee

Languages, Translators, Project Managers - WM-6577

IMPROVED [Wordbee Flex] Workflow option to reopen jobs is now triggered when translations are newly set to red status

The Flex configuration permits the user to specify under which conditions a translation status is set to red status. This is used to track content changes or additions. The project workflow option to reopen jobs is now triggered when any of the translation segments change the status to to red. This makes the system behavior consistent with the configuration.

Wordbee Flex, Translators, Project Managers - WM-5203

IMPROVED [Orders] Creating an order and uploading files: When user uploads more files than allowed, the UI is now more descriptive of the actual behavior

An order allows only a limited number of files to be attached and this is a configuration option that can be set by the administrator. When user selects too many files, the system shows an error message and cancels the upload. However, the UI did not upload the allowed number of files. We have now changed the behavior so that the upload of the selected files is cancelled in such cases. This improves the user experience.
