New in WebTranslateIt : Language Inheritance

Posted by Edouard Brière on May 30, 2017

Today we just released a new feature in WebTranslateIt called Language Inheritance.

Language inheritance is only available to organizations on our new plans. It isn’t available to organizations on our “Legacy” plans.

Language inheritance lets you define a hierarchy in the languages of a project. It is useful because it lets you re-use and extend translations for languages having similarities, but yet are different.

For example, the French language is spoken in many countries: France, Belgium, Canada… Using this feature you could define a general language French with the fr language code on which you would save generic French translations.

French spoken in Canada is different from French spoken in France. You could then create a French (Canada) language with the fr-CA language code to write translations specific to the French language as spoken in Canada.

Using the inheritance feature, translations in fr will automatically fill in the translations in fr-CA, unless a specific translation in fr-CA is saved. It means you no longer have to manually fill in the fr-CA translations. You only need to correct the translations specific to fr-CA.

3 small new features

Posted by Estelle Alexandre on May 29, 2017

Here are 3 tiny but useful features we’ve been releasing over the past few weeks.

Mass-deleting labels is now displayed on the activity feed and reversible

You asked for it, we made it! Mass-deleting a label from the filters now adds an activity in your project Activity Feed.

On top of that, it is now possible to recover the label and re-assign it to all the segments it was assigned to. To do so, click on the “Revert this activity” link at the bottom of the list.

Revert Translation Improvements

On the subject of reverting things, we made reverting translations much better. On the segment history page you will find links to revert a translation to an old version.

Clicking on that link will now open the translation box and fill it with the text of that previous version, so you can do small amendments along the way.

Updated Deleted Resources page

Lastly, we refreshed the design of several pages, especially the page to restored deleted resources (deleted segments, files, languages, …).

That’s it! I hope you will find these improvements useful. If you have questions or feedback don’t hesitate to send us a message on our support form.

Support for Google Translate NMT

Posted by Estelle Alexandre on May 16, 2017

We just added support for the new Google Translate NMT API in WebTranslateIt.

The Google Translate NMT API is a new machine translation API released by Google using a Neural Network. We find it gives better suggestions for textual segments, but is not as precise as the original Google Translate API for text containing variables, so we found it useful to be able to get suggestions from both the original Google Translate API and the new Google Translate NMT API at the same time.

If you would like to use this new API, just add your Google Translate API token in your project settings.

I hope you will find this improvement useful. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.

New in WebTranslateIt: Public Organizations

Posted by Estelle Alexandre on May 4, 2017

Do you have many public projects? If you do, you can now provide your translators with a list of all your public projects by setting your organization as public too.

Organization owners can set the organization as public in the organization settings (by clicking on “Account” and then “Settings”.

Public Organizations are visible to people who don’t belong to the organization, and display a list of the public projects they can join.

Here’s an example:

I hope you will find this feature useful. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.

New in WebTranslateIt: Diff in activity feed

Posted by Estelle Alexandre on May 4, 2017

The activity feed for translations just got a bit better.

It is now possible to display the exact differences with the previous translation as an highlighted Diff. In order to display it just click on the translation text.

I hope you will find this new feature useful. Thank you for using WebTranslateIt.
