Automatic Action - Fetch RTF

Peter Kolar 1 year ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration updated 1 year 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 12 months ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration updated by Sancho Leath 12 months 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,

Peter

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

Jaime Zuniga 2 years ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration updated by Thijs Senten 2 years 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 2 years ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration updated by Chris Phillips 2 years 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

XLIFF as source file

Jaime Zuniga 4 months ago in Home Portal / Classic Projects with CAT integration updated 4 months ago 0

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?

Thanks!

Removing input source files from all tasks in one go?

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.

Answer

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?

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.
