What's New in SDL
Detecting language please wait for.......
With the conclusion of this November, a new update was released to SDL Trados Live Team. We’re therefore taking the opportunity to provide you with an overview of the following exciting new and enhanced functionality since the last September update.
To benefit from the new features and updates, just log into SDL Trados Live Team and they will be available instantly.
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 project managers 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.
Target language file support incl. pre-translated SDLXLIFF/XLIFF as source files
We have now enabled the ability to support target language files, such as pre-processed bilingual files or files with a target language code in the XML. When such a file is submitted, the Scan task will check that the source and/or target languages match the project languages and then only copy the file to the appropriate target language.
For non-matching files and error task will be generated which can then be resolved by replacing the file, editing the file type configuration and retrying.
Project TM and Termbase in offline package
We have now introduced a new (optional) workflow task that will generate Project TMs and Termbase which will be delivered in offline packages downloaded.
All Workflow templates have been updated with this new task, which is disabled by default.
To enable this feature, in the workflow enable the Generate Offline Package Resources task.
For existing workflows, you will need to pick from a default Workflow template to include the new task.
Note: Project TMs will work with existing and older version of SDL Trados Studio, while Termbases will only work in Studio with the soon to be released SDL Trados Studio 2021 – Service Release 1.
Project Audit trail
We have now introduced a formal Project Audit trail for tracking and auditing user activities such as task acceptance and completion.
The audit trail section can be accessed through Project details->Files and by selecting a file which will open the sidebar.
The audit trail details can also be downloaded as Excel and CSV files, which include additional detail.
Additional places to generate target files
We have now added more locations where you can download target files (including intermediate files). The additional locations include:
Inbox -> Task details (for Translation and Review Tasks types)
Inbox -> Task details -> Files
Ability to prevent source text in segment editing
We have now added the ability to prevent editing of source text in segments at a project template and project settings level. This setting will initially apply to Online Editor.
Note: This option will only work in Studio with the soon to be released SDL Trados Studio 2021 – Service Release 1 – Cumulative Update 3.
We hope this post was informative and we look forward to continuing to provide you with updates to the product.
