What's New in SDL
Detecting language please wait for.......
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.
Searching, Filtering and Batch Deletion in Translation Memory Maintenance
We have now extended the functionality of the Translation Memory Maintenance capability.You can now Search for strings in source and target, as well as using regular expressions.
Furthermore, you can now create and store advanced filters per user, which allow filtering for metadata, such as Creation dates, Translation Unit status and more.
We have now also introduced Batch Actions, starting with Batch Delete, which enables deletion based on a filter.
Create projects without source files
You can now create a project without the requirement for a translatable file. This allows for preparing projects before the final project files are provided. For example, assigning users to tasks, setting up project settings and other such tasks.
To create such a project in Language Cloud, select Projects->New Project and select Create rather than “Create and Start”.
Once the files are available, you can add them to the project using Files->Add Files and start the project workflow from the Projects list.
Updated Content Analysis Domains
We have now integrated with the latest version of Content Analysis which provides more granular domains, especially for business relevant domains. Find below the Old and New domains that will be returned by the Content Analysis.
Users that had a service type domain set, are automatically migrated to the new domains.Projects created before this change will keep displaying their old results.

Project Template and File Type configuration used now visible in Project Settings
We now display which Project Template and File Type configuration was originally used to create a project in the Project Details -> Settings area. This makes is easier to identify the template used.
Ability to delete a Customer
We have now enabled the ability to delete a Customer from the UI. In order to do so, the “Customer folder” has to only have default resources, so custom objects need to be deleted beforehand.
Custom Date & Time, Number, Measurement and Currency Language Processing Rules
We have now introduced the ability to specify customer Date & Time, Number, Measurement and Currency Language processing rules if you need to divert from the defaults.
This means you can adapt a specific date format to a custom by language if necessary.
Ability to cancel a file
We have now introduced the ability for Administrators and PJMs to cancel a file at any stage of the workflow to better be able to handle exceptions. This is available from Project details -> Files.
If a file is cancelled the workflow for that file will immediately stop (ongoing automated tasks will finish processing and then stop there).
If a source file is cancelled, this will stop all target versions of that file.
Remember my tenant selection
We have now introduced the ability to remember the Tenant selection on login, this is helpful if you work for many different Tenants.
In order to switch a tenant, you can go to Avatar on the top right and click “Switch Account” which will display the dialog.
File type management enhancements
We have now added the ability to delete default file types from file type configurations, to ensure they are not available when using a specific file type configuration.
Default file type configurations can however be restored back into a file type configuration through the Add New File Type dialog.
Going forward we will also use this mechanism when we introduce new file types to the platform. They will no longer automatically be added to file type configurations but can be added manually. This enables more control for administrators to decide when a file type is to be supported for project creation.
We hope this post was informative and we look forward to continuing to provide you with updates to the product.

I agree! I have a Customer Opportunity in Life Sciences where this is a requirement, so very happy to see this functionality added in Language Cloud
The "Create job without files" feature is super useful - I can think of many occasions when a customer knows they will be sending rush files and being able to have everything ready so that when the files are available it's all go is great!
