Hey there, translation manager! We're thrilled to bring you the latest enhancement that's going to elevate the way you manage translation projects. Say hello to threaded segment comments – a game-changer for your workflow. Let's dive into all the details.
Gone are the days of sifting through lengthy email chains and scattered comments. With threaded segment comments, you can now facilitate more structured discussions within your translation projects. Imagine being able to respond directly to specific comments, keeping conversations on point and making it a breeze for your team to keep up.
This feature isn't just about streamlining your work; it's about fostering better collaboration. By enabling you to reply to particular comments, we're enabling you to lead focused conversations, ultimately contributing to more efficient and effective project management.
We've had our finger on the pulse of what translation project managers truly need. You asked, and we listened. Here are some pain points we aimed to address:
Conversations around Segment Comments: Now, you can have discussions centered around particular segment comments, including Language Quality Assurance (LQA) error reports.
Query Management: Mark queries as open, in progress, or resolved. Keep the chaos in check and ensure nothing falls through the cracks.
Tailored Language Threads: Tailor conversations to specific language pairs or have broader threads spanning all project languages.
Here's the nitty-gritty of how it all works:
Existing comments: Regular segment comments become independent threads with one comment each.
LQA comments: Comments with fragments now form their own dedicated threads.
Creating threads: You can create top-level comments to kick off a discussion.
Engaging in Threads: Reply to top-level comments to start a focused thread or participate in existing discussions.M
Managing statuses: Each top-level comment (thread) has a status – no status, open, in progress, or resolved. Managers and assigned linguists have control over this.
As a manager, you can delete any top-level comment and even change its state at will. Linguists can delete their own comments if they're unthreaded. Plus, you can toggle threads to be visible in all languages or just the original language pair.
We're all about keeping you connected. Expect email notifications when you or your team members receive replies in comment threads. We're all about ensuring that you're in the know, with quick access via direct links.
