Transit NXT Service Pack Release Note

Special edition: Transit Service Pack 8 is here!

The new Service Pack of STAR's computer assisted translation memory tool has finally arrived!

Service Pack 8: you talked, we listened

The long-awaited Transit NXT Service Pack 8 has arrived! It comes packed with a host of new features and improvements. For those who have been following our blog for some time, you will see that many of the options that you specifically voted for in the poll we organized in March 2014 have been implemented. Segment compare and Segment history (who translated first, who edited and what changes were made), additional import/export filters, support for additional MT engines, are just some of the options that you voted for.

For translators by translators, but also...

Apart from the poll, there are other channels the many users of Transit – translators, terminologists and localization experts, project managers in translation companies and corporate language management departments – make use of in order to send us their requests for features. You will therefore see new functions and improvements that were not presented in the poll. One of the most difficult tasks is to prioritise the many requests for features and eventually decide which ones will be included in the next Service Pack. Again, the new Service Pack pays tribute to STAR's axiom that Transit is a "tool for translators made by translators". However, at the same time, it is a "tool for project managers made by project managers", as well as a "tool for localizers made by localizers" and so on. You might see where I am going: it is impossible to be everybody's darling, but I am sure that many users will be pleased with what the SP8 has to offer. After all, the changes implemented were requests from the users themselves!

How do you eat an elephant?

One bite at a time! That's why we won't cover all the new features in one blog post. Instead, we will offer you a taster in this article and will present them one by one in subsequent, easy-to-digest posts.

What's new in Transit NXT Service Pack 8

... news so far, gracias for that. Beside the Service Pack information, I' m happy to have learned how to eat an elephant ;-). It's the same as with some Transit features: You'll never know when you'll need it. But IF you need it, it's good to have them.
