Project list

Hover over the info icon tooltip_icon.png in the right-hand column to display additional information about the project. The contents depend on the configuration and are customizable.

Clicking on the menu icon in the left-hand column displays menu which provides access to view and manage the project.

This menu allows you to carry out the following tasks for each target language in the project:

  • View metrics

  • View the translator statistics

  • Manage workflow

  • Manage the project files - generating and downloading the target files

  • Open XTM Workbench

  • Open chat

Then for the project in the general tab, you can:

  • View the project estimates

  • View the general details of the project

  • Carry out a number of actions on the project

  • Download reports

The Actions that you can take are:

  • Delete the project with any TM that you generated with the project

  • Delete the project leaving the TM in place

  • Approve the TM even if the project has not been completed

  • Archive the project. This removes it from the current list of projects, but it may be restored at a later date.

  • Reanalyze the project - the option recalculates the matching and metrics, but leaves the statistics and workflow allocations unchanged; deletes target segment comments added in XTM Workbench; deletes from History any generated offline files.

  • Reopen the project

  • Finish the project

  • Accept leveraged & ICE segments - this turns their status from orange to green and any green segments are saved in the TM database as approved TM

  • Save the settings from this project as a template for use in future projects

  • Report a problem you are experiencing with the project. Selecting this option brings up a window to enter details about the problem. XTM sends this message to the XTM support team together will all the relevant information about the project to ensure a swift resolution.

  • Publish the project in XTM Xchange - See Chapter 8 for more details about XTM Xchange. //NO LINK, find it & link//
