XTM Cloud v 13.1

Segment status

In this section Administrators and Project Managers set the required behavior for the segment statuses in XTM Workbench.

To access the Segment status parameters go to Configuration > Settings > Translation > TM > Segment status.

Table 13. Segment status parameters

Parameter

Description

Mark segments as done in subsequent steps when not changed by corrector

When enabled, if corrector1 sets a segment to green without making a change, then all further steps will be set as DONE. If the segment is not set to green, or the target text is changed by the corrector, then all further steps will be set as TO BE DONE.

Mark segments as done in subsequent steps when not changed by corrector

This parameter can be used to reduce the workload of the linguist following a corrector, as they will only have to check work on the segments that have been changed by the corrector.

Set non-translatables as done

This parameter firstly enables you to determine whether this option appears in the interface and what the default value should be. If non-translatables are set as done, then these segments will be automatically set to green and will not require attention from the linguist. Then, using the following values, you can further specify what steps of non-translatables should be set as DONE:

  • All steps - sets all steps to done

  • First step only - set if you want a reviewer or corrector to check all segments

  • All except last step - set if you want a reviewer or corrector check all segment

Show the last user details in TM after a segment update

If changes to segment status and/or target are applied during an automatic step in the workflow, the Modified by metadata in the TM record shows: by default: SYSTEM.

If you select this parameter: the details of the user who applied the latest changes to status and/or target in XTM Workbench before an automatic workflow step. If no user applied changes during the project and only the automatic step introduces changes, XTM Cloud will log "SYSTEM" as "Modify by".
