Table 23. Linguist workflow options parameters



Require acceptance of task/project

This feature enables Project Managers to confirm the availability of linguists or LSPs for the workflow step they have been assigned to. These users will receive emails informing them about a task linguists need to accept or a project LSPs need to accept before being able to start working on it. XTM Cloud will send Project Managers an email as soon as one of the linguists or LSPs assigned to the project accepts or declines the task or the project.

When you enable this parameter, from the available options, select System default:

  • none.

  • by linguist.

  • by LSP.

  • by linguist and LSP.


Project Managers can select a different option while creating a project

Reassign updated task to the original user group

Reassigns the project to the original group of linguists instead of the linguist who worked on the project, when updating files under the continuous project function.

Finish or reject tasks in XTM Workbench

Enables linguist to finish or reject the task from within XTM Workbench by clicking on an icon, rather than doing it from the Tasks tab. The available options are:

  • Do not allow

  • Finish only

  • Finish or reject manually

  • Finish or reject automatically depending on segment status

Message when linguist finishes any step

A customized message for the linguist at the end of each step with an instruction to confirm before the task moves on.

Message when linguist finishes last step

A customized message for the linguist at the end of the last step in the workflow with an instruction to confirm before finishing the task.

Check inconsistency when linguist finishes any step (Checks for subcontracted projects are set in principal system)

Checks the translation for inconsistencies and will display a custom message that the linguist needs to acknowledge before finishing the task. If a task has been subcontracted, then the behavior of this parameter is governed by the settings on main system, as the settings on the subcontractor’s system are not taken into account. The available options are:

  • Fuzzy match used but not edited

  • Different translations for the same source text

  • The same translation for different source texts

  • Invalid inline tags

  • Incomplete segments - the custom alert message is displayed when a task still has red or orange segments

  • Spelling & QA

Message when XTM finds an inconsistency

A customized message for the linguist with the information about what kind of errors and inconsistencies there are.

You can leave the text field empty.
