Release Notes

XTM Cloud v12.5 – October 11, 2020

General

  • Linguists or users with a limited PM role can now be set up automatically via SSO.

XTM Workbench

  • A new QA check is now available in XTM Workbench. It generates a warning if the translation for a fuzzy match has been inserted into a target segment without being edited.
  • A new option has been added to XTM Workbench: auto-propagation can now apply to filtered repeated segments only.
  • Linguists working in XTM Workbench can now easily copy segment IDs with just one click. It is also possible to hide segment IDs while still benefiting from the ID-based search and filtering options.
  • The XTM Workbench docked panel has been redesigned for an optimal user experience. The tab can be now opened in a new browser window.
  • XTM Workbench users can now choose where they wish to perform the Concordance search: in approved translation memory entries only or in all of the translation memories available.
  • Full metrics can now be viewed directly from within XTM Workbench.

Project Manager

  • XTM now supports a selection of African languages: Bemba, Changana, Dholuo, and Kasena; languages spoken in northeastern India: Manipuri and Nagamese; and indigenous languages of Americas: Kaingang and Nheengatu.

  • Using a new REST API method, you can now reanalyse projects when uploading new files as well as at any time in the workflow process.
  • The TAUS DQF integration now offers an additional ‘metadata only’ API type that allows end-users to work with DQF analytics without sending the translation content to TAUS. The type of data to be sent to TAUS can be selected at system, customer, project template and project level.
