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.
Notes is a very useful and practical feature provided by Transit NXT. As a project manager, you can enter notes in the "Source" field of the Notes window to draw the translator's attention on particular segments. And as a translator, you can enter notes in the "Target" field of the Notes window for pretranslated segments for example, or point out instances of unclear wording in the source text. Lets see how this works.
Translating into R2L languages like Arabic, Hebrew, etc. requires special care, especially when some segments are bidirectional, i.e., they contain both R2L and L2R sequences of text like the one shown below:
We are back again with another set of very useful shortcuts!! This time we will see some shortcuts that can be used while translating with dictionaries.
While translating languages with non-Latin fonts like Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, etc., you might sometimes wonder why the font is not correctly displayed in the Transit NXT translation editor. If you work with any of these languages in Transit NXT, you have to map the correct font with the language in question.
We are back again with another interesting and useful mini-post! We shall see a quick tip to save time while translating in the Transit NXT translation editor.
This is the first in a new series of mini posts about helpful keyboard shortcuts and macros, both designed to abbreviate the execution of commands that usually take several clicks to carry them out. We will present the most common ones to you so as to speed up your daily work with Transit and make it easier.
But why shortcuts or macros in the first place?
