We are using an Automatic Action in our workflow, which automatically fetches Two Column RTFs from memoQ. The problem with this autoamtic step is that if you reimport the document in memoQ (to apply special filtes), XTRF loses the GUID of the file and automatic action fails.
Does anyone use this function?
Is it possible to add a workflow selection rule, that would select a specific TM from several TMs we have for the same client in memoQ-XTRF integration? The TM selection would depend on the project area.
We have 3 TMs for a client, but only need 1 of these for a specific project area.
We will be upgrading our XTRF from 8.0 to 8.1 and are wondering, if someone could share their experience with 8.1 so far. Were there any new bugs introduced, is there something we should be careful about? Something we should look forward to? :) Any feedback would be greatly appreciated
I'd like to know how others are handling this scenario and what you think of our idea:
Using classic projects with memoQ integration, Iif we chose an agency as a vendor, say ABC Company, and we wanted to assign them in memoQ to separate roles, Translation and Review 2, using different usernames, we currently cannot do that since we can only specify one username per vendor for our external system. What would work great for us would be the ability to specify additional usernames, and tie them to a specific job type, or multiple job types.
So what we are looking to add would be the ability to specify additional usernames that would be tied to job types. In this way we could specify, for instance the Translation step, to username ABC.trans, and the Editing step to username ABC.edit, for a single vendor.
Posting this under "Classic" but also affects "Smart".
We have the following common scenario: we work with SLVs where we assign multiple jobs, let's say "Translation" and "Editing", to two different translators on the SLV side. They need to work at the same time and we want to know who worked on each segment/translation, so we need to have two distinct users for them in memoQ. However, from XTRF, each vendor can have only one set of credentials that can be passed onto memoQ.
One solution we can think of would be to let each of the contact persons on the Vendor profile have their own set of credentials. After all, each contact person has a full profile and access to portal, so the concept of multiple persons within the vendor already exists. It would only make sense that they could also be assigned to tasks and jobs individually.
I am trying to get a Smartling CAT analysis imported into XTRF however as I understand, Smartling file formats are not importable at the moment. Is there an XTRF template I could use that I could fill in using data from a Smartling export? My objective is to avoid manual entry where I can so I would be automating the extraction of data from a Smartling export and into an importable XTRF template if available.
We are having trouble getting an xliff file returned in the same format in a memoQ integrated project. Instead, it is returned as a mqxliff file. I asked XTRF Support about this and after a few weeks of testing the end result is that xliff files will always be returned as mqxliff files. I find this really hard to believe!
Does anyone have experience using xliff files in an integrated project with memoQ and receives the translated files back as xliff? If so, can you please share if you had to change any of the automatic action settings?
I have a scenario where I receive source files for quoting purposes, and once that quote is approved, I then receive slightly different files for translation. Is there a way to remove all existing input source files in one go? I know that I can remove them manually at the task level, but in a project with many languages this process becomes very tedious.
There is no way to do this. I see your point, but the interface does not foresee such scenario. I could imagine a macro do that, though. You can batch-upload new files then, so perhaps it's worth it?
Talk to your AM to request an estimate. Or, perhaps other folks here could help?
Is it possible to add items to the Workflow Directories list?
I tried adding it through this menu, but it does not add the item to the Workflow Directories.
The list of workflow directories in the Task is fixed and it is not possible to add anything to that list. There's one directory for each file category + one directory for the Task output.
Hello, I wanted to ask if anyone know how to map an LSP (created specifically in XTM) between XTRF and XTM (but if you managed to do so between different CAT tool, like MemoQ - any advice would be helpful!).
Whenever I try to map the agency profile in XTRF with the LSP in XTM and I run a project with connector in XTRF, a duplicated vendor in XTM is created, instead of assign the existing LSP.
Any advice on how to approach it would be great!
