New features on WebTranslateIt

Posted by Edouard on April 3, 2018

Hi there!

Spring is here (or is it? it doesn’t feel like it yet) and while most people in Málaga (where we’re based) were busy preparing everything for Semana Santa, we’ve been busy bees working on new features and bug fixes. Here are a few of these features and changes that we released recently.

Custom Locales for Teams

Do you use Custom Locales? Do you use Teams?

Then you will like this update, because you can now create teams of translators working on custom locales.

It all starts when inviting a new translator or language coordinator:

Set the custom locale in Teams and that’s it!

As usual, if you don’t already have this language in your project you will be invited to create a new project language which will be custom made as well.

WebHooks and logs on status changes

WebHooks are now fired and activity feed now logs all activity happening on translations, down to a single status change. It was previously fired and logged only if the text was changed. It is now easier to see what is happening in your project.

wti rubygem v.2.4.7 released

This minor version includes a fix for our SSL certificate and an option to deactivate SSL verification warnings. In your .wti file, add the line:

silence_errors: true

Move to Spain, Tax ID, VAT numbers, new invoices, …

WebTranslateIt.com is now a Spanish company. the months of February and March were also dedicated to preparing that move. As a result, you might have noticed that we send new invoices. Also, as we need to Know Our Customers™ better, we ask our customers more information, such as their billing address, Tax Number, VAT number (if they are a company based in the EU).

Estelle must have gotten in touch with you but if she hasn’t already, you can update your organization information on this page: https://webtranslateit.com/en/organizations/1-atelier-convivialite/edit

I hope you will like all these changes. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any questions, feedback or feature requests!

New in WebTranslateIt: Ability to sort files in the File Manager

Posted by Edouard on March 15, 2018

Hi there,

We released a small new feature on WebTranslateIt today: the ability to sort files in the File Manager.

By default files are listed by file name, now you can also filter by size (which is basically sorting out by the amount of segments in a file) or by the date the file was last updated, which is useful to detect stale files in very large projects with many files.

Each of these sorting options can be listed in ascending or descending order.

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

New in WebTranslateIt: Ability to disable suggestions

Posted by Edouard on March 1, 2018

We just released an update to WebTranslateIt so you can now disable suggestions. You can do this at a project-level or user-level.

As manager: disable translation suggestions for all translators on a project

As a manager, sometimes you want to control if your translators can reuse translations from other projects, or if they should translate everything from scratch.

You can now choose if translators should receive suggestions in the project settings.

As a user: disable your own suggestions

You can now simply disable suggestions in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. Select “Disable Suggestions”.

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

New in WebTranslateIt: E-mail notifications about segments to verify and to proofread

Posted by Edouard on October 30, 2017

Today we released another of our most requested features. As many of you know, it is possible to receive e-mail notifications about new segments to translate.

If you don’t know about it, it’s super easy to set up. Go to your project settings and look for “Events » Check for new segments to work on”, select a frequency (daily or hourly) and who to notify.

Until today this feature was only sending e-mail notifications about new segments being added to a project. But what about segments needing proofreading or verification?

From now on, we will now send e-mails about segments being modified and needing to be worked on like for instance new segments to proofread or new segments to verify.

Hi,

There has been some changes in the project WebTranslateIt. Here’s what needs to be done:

Also, if you are a user having translation rights to multiple languages you will get a notification e-mail about the multiple languages.

Note: We initially released this feature on the 25th of September but rolled it back due to our user’s feedback. We re-released it today with the ability to fine-tune what gets sent to our users. You can now control if you want your users to receive e-mails about new segments to translate, or about segments to proofread or to verify.

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

New in WebTranslateIt: Improvements to the character counter

Posted by Edouard on October 11, 2017

We just released a few improvements to how characters are counted on WebTranslateIt.

First of all, we now display a character counter at the bottom of each translation box.

For those of you unfamiliar with this kind of counter (it is quite widespread on translation tools), the number on the left is the amount of characters in the source text and the number on the right is the amount of characters in the target text.

If a lot of text is being typed in the translation box you will notice that the target text character count turns orange. It’s a sign that your translation could be too verbose.

We also revamped how the character counter works on segments including a character limit.

Finally, we also added one project setting to let you choose how you want WebTranslateIt to count characters: by characters or by bytes. By default we count a character as a character (using a grapheme counter).

It means that “A” is 1 character, “🤔” is 1 character and “की” is 1 character.

However, we know that some tools you rely on still count characters using bytes, and some characters are made of several bytes, so for some tools “A” would be 1 character and “🤔” and “की” would be 2 characters.

We hope you will find these improvements useful. Until then, don’t hesitate to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
