    This feature uses the XTM NLP framework for the automatic placement of inline tags in the machine translation.

    Optional

    Radio buttons

    Valid values:

    • Never (default).

      If you select this setting, the inline tags are NOT processed by the auto-insert mechanism. XTM Cloud retains the structure of the inline tags inside matches as received from the MT.

    • Only incorrect inline tags.

      If you select this setting, the inline tags are sent to an MT engine and the auto-insert mechanism only works for MT matches that have an incorrect inline tag structure, for example:

      • too many inline tags in a match.

      • missing or too few inline tags in a match.

    • Always.

      If you select this setting, after receiving the translation from MT system, the auto-insert mechanism works for all matches received from MT.


  5. Select Synchronize.

  6. At the bottom of the page, select Save.

Result: CrossLang MT engine is displayed in the Configuration > Settings > Translation > Machine Translation section.
