XTM Cloud 13.4

Project Editor – LQA

LQA evaluations of linguist performance on a project are recorded in the LQA tab screen.

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.

Results are collected from LQAs that are performed in the workflow step after the step to which the linguist was assigned. LQA results are stored for linguists only when the option Yes, save result in user record has been selected from the LQA dropdown list in the Edit Workflow window.

LQA results can be displayed:

  • Per file.

  • Per language.

LQA results are presented in a table containing the following information:

  • Source language.

  • Target language.

  • Workflow step.

  • Filename – This information is displayed only in case of LQA reports per file. LQA reports per language aggregate data from all files in the relevant language combination.

  • Score.

  • Words.

  • Evaluee

  • Evaluator.

  • Test completed.

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.

    • Evaluee.

    • Evaluator.

    • Severity multipliers.

    • Word count.

    • Issue types.

    Notice

    This option enables you only to delete the relevant report from the user interface. It will not cause the deletion of LQA errors listed in the report. These errors will still be stored on server and can be listed in another LQA report.

    To delete LQA errors from the server, in XTM Workbench, delete relevant LQA errors from the LQA docked panel. For details, see Deleting LQA errors in XTM Workbench.

    After the project revision, the Per language report will be overwritten with the new data. In case of the Per file report, a new report with changed data will be generated in addition to the previous one.
