Short cuts – Nº 13 : Dynamic preview of MS Office files

Semantic and structural context are of vital importance for the correct translation of segments. For this reason, translators often switch back and fourth between the original file and the CAT tool in order to better understand the context in which a segment appears.

Working with subtitles in Transit NXT

With Service Pack 7, Transit NXT offers the option to translate subtitles for films, corporate videos and presentations. Traditionally subtitling has fallen outside of the scope of translation memory packages, perhaps as it was thought to be too creative a process to benefit from the features such software offers. However, with online video becoming an increasingly important part of the business marketing mix, many companies are looking to maintain consistency of terminology and style right across their published output, as well as wanting to make the most of their previously translated material. Well, now they can. And any Transit user can now produce professional translated subtitles with no previous subtitling experience.

Dual Concordance search in Transit NXT

In this tooltip we will see how to use the Dual Concordance search feature offered by Transit NXT. This feature is extremely useful for translators as it provides a wide variety of options to search for a specific term or a phrase in the reference material or in the file currently being translated. As the name 'dual' suggests, you can search for both source and target language term/phrase. You can also personalize the dual concordance search settings.

Short cuts – Nº 6 : Inserting markups in the Transit NXT editor 'on the fly'

Working with markup ID's can be quite tedious especially if the segments have a lot of markups. And it is not possible to avoid markups because if they are not inserted correctly, you may not be able to export your file. Therefore markups require special care while translation. Let's first understand what a markup ID is.

Filtering segments in Transit NXT

The segment filter in Transit NXT is a very handy feature that allows you to show or hide subsets of a document. As a translator, for example, you can display only the segments with a very high fuzzy match value and translate these first, a procedure that will boost your productivity. Or as a proof-reader or project manager, you may want to first look at the segments that contain translator's queries in the notes window.
