    Mandatory

    Radio buttons

    Valid values:

    • In XTM Workbench (default).

      If you select this setting, the text is only sent to an MT engine when a user enters a segment in XTM Workbench in Edit mode. The translation is provided on a segment-to-segment basis.

    • After analysis.

      If you select this setting, the whole text is sent to MT matching during project analysis. When the user enters XTM Workbench, all segments are filled with MT matches.

    • After analysis and in XTM Workbench.

    Use auto inline tag placement

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

    Mandatory

    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.
