  • Repetitions within 100% matches separated in wordcount

    • Under Community Review on 20 Jul 2017
    We are having a client for which we only want to review the first instance in which a 100% match is applied. At the moment, the process to make the distinction between "repetitions" and "first instance in repetitions" is not available in Reports view...

  • Get those cryptic error messages more human

    • In Progress on 9 Mar 2017
    One thing I have an intimate familiarity with in Studio (like so many others as can be seen from the forums here, unfortunately) are the error messages in Studio. I think it is high time that the developers replace those error messages with something...

  • Confirmation prompt when closing Studio with batch tasks running

    • Under Community Review on 11 Sep 2019
    At present, Studio will allow you to close it unprompted even if certain batch tasks are running in the background (e.g. setting up projects). Please introduce a prompt which requires the user to confirm they wish to close Studio if any such tasks...

  • Autolocalisation of numbers

    • Under Community Review on 20 Feb 2017
    When I translate from Polish into English I have lots of numbers written like this: VAT amount 19.372.500,00 EUR (80.965.463,40 PLN). I do realize that it is not the correct format but this is the reality. While I can set up the Studio to treat the numbers...

  • Make project focus match the active document

    • Under Community Review on 18 May 2018
    The active project should match the active document, with project focus changing in the background without user intervention when a file belonging to a project other than the active project becomes active.

  • Better handling of inconsistent translation message in verification (filter)

    • Under Community Review on 21 Nov 2017
    When Studio reports segments that have been translated inconsistently, the translator must then manually go and find the reported segment. It would be very helpful if Studio could filter inconsistently translated segments in a way that all the inconsistent...

  • QA: Go directly to the inconsistent segment

    • Under Community Review on 20 Jun 2018
    When in the QA Checker I receive the message that a segment was translated inconsistently compared to segment #x, it would be great if I could jump directly to that segment.

  • Add document structure information to regular expressions in QA checker

    • Under Community Review on 17 Apr 2019
    • 1 Comment
    Scenario: There are often different requirements for writing styles and number formats in headings/tables/paragraph texts. To run regex QA checks on these, we currently have to filter by document structure type in the advanced filter, lock irrelevant...

  • Highlight the word when using the filter

    • Under Community Review on 27 Oct 2017
    It would be great to have the words highlighted, that you filtered in the display filter or advanced display filter (an why not also in the search).

  • Inform users regularly about fixes/features actually BEING WORKED ON for next update

    • Under Community Review on 25 Sep 2017
    Reading the user's bugreports/requests in the forum, one can see almost always statements like " yes, this is in our backlog, but we did not get to that yet ". So it would be good to start informing users what is then actually being worked on for the...
