Automatic Action - Fetch RTF

Peter Kolar 5 months ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration • updated 5 months ago 4

Hi everyone,


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?


Kind regards,

Peter

Selection Rules for Workflow Resources - Different TMs for same client

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.


For example:
We have 3 TMs for a client, but only need 1 of these for a specific project area.

Upgrade to XTRF 8.1. Your feedback, experience so far? Any new bugs?

Peter Kolar 3 weeks ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration • updated by Sancho Leath 3 weeks ago 12

Hi,

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


Kind regards,

Ability to have additional usernames in other systems, per job type

Jaime Zuniga 11 months ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration • updated by Thijs Senten 7 months ago 2

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.


Thanks,

Jaime

Solution to assign work to multiple users within an external SLV

Jose Palomares 1 year ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration • updated by Chris Phillips 1 year ago 8

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.


Thanks,

Jose

Workflow Directories . add items

Hi,


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.


Kind regards,

Peter

Answer

Hi Peter

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.

Best regards,

Marek

How to map LSP between XTRF and CAT tool

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!

Thanks

Memsource Integration - Project Templates not displaying in the Workflow template?

We are testing Memsource and created a project template in the platform. The integration with XTRF and Memsource is fully operational. 

However, when I open the workflow template, "CAT Tool" tab, the Memsource project template is not displayed in the "Project Template" dropdown menu. 

Anyone any ideas what I am missing?

Thanks in advance.

Can Classic Projects start automatically on creation?

This may be a stupid question, but is there an option that allows workflows to automatically start on creation? What I'm trying to do is configure a workflow that starts automatically when a client launches a project from the client portal.


So far, I can automate almost everything up including quote sending, conversion into project and file delivery, but it still seems to need the click of a button to actually start the workflow.


Am I missing something here? It seems like a basic functionality.

Bundles and classic projects - memoq

Peter Kolar 5 months ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration • updated by Lucia 4 months ago 2

Hi,


I was wondering how you setup classic projects with memoQ using Bundles.


More specifically for jobs that require multiple translators (jobs) in which each translator gets his own file.


Is there a way to set up a workflow definition that would automatically add a specific number of bundles according to the number of translators?


Or is the solution to just create a workflow definition with multiple bundles and hope the number of translators will not be larger than number of bundles?


Or am I missing something fundamental here?


Kind regards,

Peter
