We have just released the latest update to SDL Language Cloud’s translation management capabilities and we are excited to announce that it delivers some great innovation and functionality.

To benefit from the new features and updates, just login to SDL Language Cloud and they will be available immediately.

Pricing Model and Quoting enhancements

We have now introduced a new unit which allows you to add per page costs in pricing models and quotes.

Additionally, we have enabled the ability to add decimal values, which can be helpful for quoting in 30 minutes rather than the full hour.

Custom fields in Project Templates can now be ordered

The order of Custom fields can now be defined, to ensure they are displayed in certain order. This is especially helpful when offering the Customer Portal to requestors or if many custom fields are used.

Open files in Online Editor/Studio from Stages and Files view

We have now added more entry points into the Online Editor and Studio. While previously this was only possible from the Inbox, you can now open tasks in the Online Editor/Studio from the Project Details->Stages and Files views.
This prevents a lot of jumping back and forth between Inbox and Projects for some users.
Additionally, it makes it easier for PJMs to open the file in the Online Editor in read-only mode even if assigned to other users.

Online Editor now shows more project details

In the Online Editor we have added the ability to show additional project information, such as file-name, project name and the location/customer.

Additional changes

You can now enable/disable Cross-repetition calculations from Project Settings ->Pre-Processing Settings-> Advanced Settings

Introduced ability to extract number formatting in IDML filetype

Added more details of Error tasks in Task history

The “Start Project” button in Project list has been made more prominent

Various bug fixes and UX enhancements.


We hope this post was informative and we look forward to continuing to provide you with updates to the product.
