Release Notes 8/14/2020 - Wordbee Translator

New Wordbee Translator features and enhancements released on Friday, August 14, 2020:

[NEW] Project document library: Enhancement to the action links above the file explorer
The action links allow to upload files, convert from PDF, refresh files and so on. We have reorganized the links into a menu for better usability. One newly added action is to add a Flex Container file - something useful for anyone integrating with the Wordbee Flex API.

[NEW] [Order Forms]: New order form option to adjust client deadline to fall on a worked day
The new option automatically moves the deadline typed by the client if it falls on a weekend or office closing day. The option is configured in the order form settings. Go to "Settings", "New order form" and look for the "Order deadline and off-days" option. By default is is not enabled.

[NEW] [Project costs]: Users are able to modify costs by percentage when editing counts under project's 'Word counts & cost' tab
It is now possible to modify costs by in client and supplier screens before creating their invoices, directly in the 'Word counts & cost' tab of a project. Managers will also have the possibility to modify the fuzzy reduction amount and additional fee/discount amount directly in that tab.

[NEW] [API] Two new API v1 methods to create and delete Codyt document workflows
The two new methods are explained here:

[NEW] [Terminology tool]: Display all the terms related to a concept in the main list of concepts.
The search bar in the Terminology Management space has been updated to include in the list of results any term documented in a database, together with its relation to other terms in that concept. This allows for more refined search capabilities, making it possible for a user to find the terms in the database that match the criteria set in his query. For example:
- If the search criteria matches the alternative term then it will be only displayed without displaying the main term.
- If the languages filter contains two languages and the search criteria matches a term from the target language then the main term for the source language will be displayed.
- You can now control the displayed language in the terms list by changing it from the languages filter and in case you select two languages, then the source language terms will be displayed.

[NEW] [MT Engine]: Integrate with TextShuttle MT system
Wordbee is now integrated with TextShuttle machine translation system. You can add and configure TextShuttle machine translation profiles in Wordbee same as any other machine translation system.

[NEW] [Wordcount and Pre-translation]: All pre-translated segments are counted from the same source (pre-translation or translation memory)
Identical repetition in segments are now translated consistently from the same translation memory. If a match is found in the translation memory, it is now favored over machine translation in all segment occurrences.

[NEW] [Machine Translation] Integration with KantanMT
Kantan MT system has been added to list of machine translation providers in Wordbee Translator and you can use it to set up MT workflows in your projects. You can learn more about Kantan MT here:

[IMPROVE] [Settings] Enhance user operations messages
The activity logs have been improved to show meaningful information to administrator users. These are affecting operations at several levels (project, linguistic references, resource names, and much more).
This enhancement helps the administrator understand which user operations have succeeded or failed.

You can access the "User operations" window from "Settings" the "Activity" tab.

[FIX] [Customer Fields]: The checkbox value is now saved on the service profile
Fixed the checkbox value that was not being saved while creating or editing service profiles. Now, check-boxes stay checked/unchecked as per the user's last choice

[FIX] [Order Forms] Order creation
Clients and requesters can now submit orders via the client portal without any failures. It is not necessary to select a person in the "delivery cc" field. Your order will be properly displayed in the order list.

[FIX] [Translation Finder] Translation finder is now working smoothly with segments found in project memories
Issues in the Translation finder widget have been fixed. Now clicking on segments with project memory matches brings the expected details.

[FIX] [Custom fields]: New custom fields creation has become more robust
We have fixed an issue depicted while creating new custom fields for project, order, service... etc. This gives the clients a better experience customizing the platform as per their needs.
