LQA report types

There are two main types of LQA report:

  1. Project LQA report.

    This report evaluates an entire project. The calculations in this report type are based on the project Metrics. This report lists all errors that occurred in all workflow steps in which the Project Manager has selected one of the following options for the LQA parameter, in the Workflow editor:

    • Yes, save result in user record.

    • Yes, don’t save result in user record.

    The evaluated and the LQA step need to be finished in XTM Workbench and all relevant segments must be set to Completed green-tick.svg for the report to be generated. Additionally, linguists must stay assigned to both steps even after the LQA step has been finished.

    Project Managers can download this type of report:

    • collectively, for all project files.

      This report can be downloaded from:

      • Projects > Project list > [relevant project name] > context menu icon bars-solid.png > Download > LQA report.

      • Project editor > Workflow tab. From the project context menu for the entire project, select Reports > LQA report.

    • for a particular project file.

      To do so, they need to open the relevant project in the Project editor, select the Workflow tab and find the relevant file. Then, from the relevant file's context menu, they must select Reports > LQA report.

  2. Linguist LQA report.

    This report evaluates the work of a particular linguist. The calculations in this report type are based on a project's Statistics. This report only lists errors made by the relevant linguist in the segments they have changed manually.

    Example 1:

    The translated file contains segments which are automatically marked as Completed (for example, ICE segments). However, these segments contain errors. The evaluated linguist does not correct them, or change these segments in any way, and finishes their task. The evaluator then marks these errors in the LQA step. These errors will NOT be listed in the linguist LQA report because the linguist did not actively work on the segments that contain these errors.

    Example 2:

    The translated file contains segments from the TM, that contain errors (for example, ICE segments). The evaluated linguist does not correct these errors, but changes the segment statuses to Completed and finishes their task. The evaluator then marks these errors in the LQA step. These errors will be listed in the linguist LQA report because the linguist has actively worked on the segments that contain these errors.

    Before the Project Manager can run this type of report, they must first:

    • add the LQA (evaluating) step after the evaluated step in the workflow.

    • add any CAT tool step which has the Yes, save result in user record option selected for the LQA feature in the Workflow editor.

      Note

      The Yes, don’t save result in user record option selected for the LQA feature in the Workflow editor will only make any errors that exist visible in Workbench to other linguists in the workflow. However, it will not be possible to run the linguist LQA report based on them.

    The evaluated and the LQA step need to be finished in XTM Workbench and all relevant segments must be set to Completed green-tick.svg for the report to be generated. Additionally, linguists must stay assigned to both steps even after the LQA step has been finished.

    Project Managers can download this type of report:

    • for a particular project:

      • from the Project Editor.

        To do so, they must open the relevant project in the Project Editor, select the LQA tab and decide whether to download the report:

        • Per file – the report contains all the LQA errors in a particular file.

        • Per language – the report contains all LQA errors in all project files. Results for a particular file are listed separately within the document and sorted per target language.

        Note

        The REST API method can be used to display information available in Project Editor > LQA tab. For details, see the REST API documentation: https://www.xtm-cloud.com/rest-api/#tag/Project-LQA/operation/getLqa.

      • from user ratings, provided the relevant user has the LQA options enabled in User Editor > unlock-alt-solid.svglock-keyhole-solid.svg Access rights > LQA.

        To do so, they should select the Users tab and then the relevant user. From the the context menu icon bars-solid.png nect to the relevant user's name, they should select thumbs-up-solid.svg Rating . Alternatively, in Edit user, select the thumbs-up-solid.svg Rating tab , decide whether to download the report Per file or Per language, find the relevant project and select the context menu icon bars-solid.png . Then, select Download LQA report or Download extended report.

        Note

        This report can be also downloaded using the REST API method. The Type parameter enables to specify, whether to get the report Per file or Per language. For details, see the REST API documentation: https://www.xtm-cloud.com/rest-api/#tag/Project-LQA/operation/downloadLqa.

    • for many projects for one or more linguists.

      To do so, they must select Projects > Project list > Actions and then select the projects that they want to run the report for. Then, from the dropdown list, they must select the Multi-project LQA report option and the Run button.

    Linguists can download their LQA reports from the Tasks > LQA tab.

    They can download the report for their projects as an Evaluee or an Evaluator.

    They can also download the report Per file or Per language.

    Note

    XTM Cloud Administrator or Project Manager must first enable this option for the relevant user in User Editor > unlock-alt-solid.svglock-keyhole-solid.svg Access rights > LQA.

    LSPs can download LQA reports from the LSP LQA tab.

    They can download the report for their projects as an Evaluee or an Evaluator.

    LSP LQA reports are generated per file.
