In the XML filter you can specify XPATH expressions to read out minimum and maximum translation lengths. These are then shown in the translation editor and verified during Q&A.

FIX Fixed an issue that was preventing color related import to not work properly under special circumstances

When multiple colors were included in the same cell in an excel spreadsheet and black was one of them, the 'Do not translate ticked color' or 'Only translate ticked colors' was not behaving as expected. This has been fixed now and should properly work.

FIX Improvement of translation memory search depth for strict language scenarios.

This optimization exclusively applies to projects where project memory and all attached memories are configured for strict languages.

NEW Fully automated delivery cycle and memory consolidation

Wordbee simplifies delivery of projects to reduce project manager's workload and automate the final steps:
- Each time the workflow of a file for a specific language is completed, the deliverable will be created and released to the client order accompanied by an email notification.
- Each time the workflow of a file for a specific language is completed, the translations are consolidated to the master memory of the project (configurable in Project settings -> Resources).
- Each time all workflows of a project are completed the project status is set to 'Finished'
- Each time a project is finished the related order status is set to 'Work done'

All the above features can be enabled or disabled on a per project/template basis.

The new API companies/pricelists/v2/services is a more powerful option to the existing method companies/{companyid}/pricelists/{pricelistid}/services

IMPROVED Disable the task selector for a Standard Job after a supplier has been assigned

NEW Order form: New mechanism to assign job deadlines upon order submission

Automatically creating jobs when a client submits an order is an optional feature in the client portal. The system estimates and assigns deadlines to jobs. The way how this is done has been brought in line with other deadline estimation changes launched recently:
* If a client submits a large number of documents, the work is now spread out over time. Before, the system assumed that you have unlimited translators all working in parallel.
* With Codyt, the deadline estimation now takes into consideration that pretranslations or fuzzy matches require less work and thus shorter deadlines.
* The calculation uses the capacity details saved with the workflow definition (you specify in the order form configuration) as well as the work week details of the platform company ("My Company").

Client Orders, Project Managers - WM-312

NEW New order form options to ensure that desired client delivery date aligns with estimated work time

The desired delivery date of the client may be too long, or too short given the required work time estimated by the system. Such scenarios can now be catered for automatically.
New options "Amend client deadline" and "Amend job deadlines" were added to the order form configuration. The former extends the client deadline if it cannot be possibly met given the work load. The latter attempts to shorten or widen estimated job deadlines so as to bring them in line with the desired client deliver date.

Client Orders, Project Managers - WM-309

NEW Supplier work week now allows to specify 24/24 work times

In the supplier's planning page you can now specify 24/24 work times. This is useful if you or a supplier provide round the clock services. The work time settings are leveraged by the deadline estimation tools.

Job Management, Project Managers - WM-311

IMPROVED Price lists inheriting from default price list: Now possible to increase prices (and not just decrease them)

When creating a client or supplier price list you can choose to "inherit" all services from the default client or supplier prices. In the past you could apply a reduction on all prices. It is now also possible to increase the default prices. This is done by adding a "negative" discount value. -50% would mean that prices are 50% higher than the default prices.

Price Management, Project Managers, Administrators - WM-315

IMPROVED User API: GZip files are now supported

It is now possible to use GZip decompression when submitting a new request using the "compress" param.

UserAPI, Translators, Project Managers, Administrators - WM-305

FIX Business rule to prevent assignment of suppliers without login did not work in all cases

The business rule in "Settings" > "Work processes" permits to prohibit assigning jobs to suppliers without an active login. Changing the rule did not have immediate effect but typically became active only after a longer period of time. This has been fixed.
