NEW [File filters] Using the translation editor to translate text from image files

You can now set image files to be translated in the editor thanks to a new file filter. You can create different filter configurations to be used in different situations:

– One or more for when users want Google or Microsoft optical character recognition (OCR) to be performed on image files so that text is extracted as segments in the translation editor.
– One or more for when users instead want a number of empty segments to be created in the translation editor. Translators can then view the image in the source file and fill in the translations in the empty segments in the editor.

The translated files are in Microsoft Excel (.xlsx) format and contain the content of the source and target columns of the editor.

Enabling a filter: Settings > Customization > Translation Settings > Document Formats > Image files > [Select a configuration] > Edit > Status > Enable > Save
