Integrations
New feature
July 21 2022

We are delighted to present our new Jira integration! It tracks Jira tickets and detects files attached to them. It automatically creates a Smartcat project for each file based on a predefined template, then generates the translation, and pushes it back to the original Jira issue.

The posts listed in the WPML integration would display twice, three times, or even four times sometimes. This has now been fixed, along with some issues regarding post deletion.

Some users reported that the offline indicator would display when there were connectivity issues, not when the user was actually offline. We now provide the right tooltip to describe the problem. And we think the offline icon is nicer too.

Pretranslation using freelance TMs

Previously, freelancers could only use their own TMs on projects they had created themselves. 

Now, they can use them when working on clients’ projects too (i.e. jobs assigned to them on the platform).


Using personal TMs won’t affect the amount freelancers are paid for their work.

HTML documents can now be previewed in the editor to increase translation quality. The only limitations that are currently imposed on this functionality are the HTML document size (2 Mb or less) and JavaScript being disabled, if any, for security reasons.

Bugfix

Handling segments with identical target and source

When uploading XLIFF files, some applications can automatically insert the current source value into the target field. This created issues with the file translation workflow, as the existing translation text was imported by default and committed to the Translation Memory.
To resolve this problem, we have provided another option in the Insert translation from file parameter for XLIFF files in addition to All targets and Do not import. The new option is called When target is different from source. It is selected by default and instructs Smartcat to ignore translations in segments where the target is identical with the source.
