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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Is there any other Memsource integration user out there who is having issues with importing LOG files to CAT Payables? No matter which combination of settings we use we still come up with "Cannot import metrics" error and have to copy the wordcount manually to payables?
If anyone has any insights on how to solve this issue we'd be absolutely grateful.
We're not having any issues with the LOG files. You might want to check if in Memsource you have included a net rate. XTRF doesn't like LOG files with net rates included, so you would need to switch those off.
It is a general question. We get regularly via the Across server multilingual translation projects. Actually, all the handling of the files and the allocation of tasks is done on the Across server, but we enter the data in XTRF manually again because we manage all our production information there. Has anyone the same situation and a better solution to avoid entering manually all admin data? We have a similar situation with a large client using SDL World server.
Dear xtrf team,
XTRF seems to have a good integration with XTM. According to your knowledge base this integration works with xtrf as the triggering party, meaning that a quote or project created in xtrf triggers the creation of a project in XTM. We would like to know if that integration can also be used the other way round, meaning a quote created in the XTM installation of our client automatically triggers a quote in our XTRF system.
