NEW Wordbee Translator now always runs using https. Option to switch to http has been removed.

For security reasons we have now removed the possibility available in "Settings" > "Advanced security settings" to enable http for Wordbee Translator. Any platform is now always running using the secure https protocol.

NEW Encoding information added with API 2 http responses. Setting deliverables in new editor enhanced.

This item covers different enhacements regarding encoding of xml, html and other formats:
(1)
API 2 provides a wide range of methods to download original files, translated files or previews. These methods did not set the "charset" (file encoding) information in the http response header. In addition, the "charset" is supplied with other API 2 methods where this makes sense. Furthermore, API methods to work with files include an "encoding" property.
This refers specifically to these API methods "/api/resources/files/****"
See https://documents.wordbee.com/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4096328
(2)
The selection of the encoding when previewing files sometimes did not take into account the selected encoding (and instead chose the encoding of the original file). This generally is not a problem unless you explicitly want to change the target encoding.
(3)
When submitting a deliverable and a deliverable already exists, the system required you to first click the delete icon before creating a new deliverable. Now, this extra step is no longer required. The old behavior was a bit confusing.

NEW Codyt project: Preselect most recent order when marking file online, instead of no order

When marking a file for translation in a Codyt project, the dialog proposes to select the order (if any) to which the document refers to. By default, no order is preselected in the picklist. With this development, the most recent order (in case there is more than 1 in the project) is preselected. This reduces the number of clicks since we assume that any document refers to an order if an order exists in the project.

FIX Optimization: Standard project jobs with many hundreds of files may not open in editor

We have improved the system to better cope with Standard project jobs that contain many hundreds of files (in a single job). Opening such jobs in the editor and viewing all documents together, as well as viewing the work progress statistics may result in an error message. This fix should improve on it. However, please note that jobs with a very high number of documents in 1 job may still result in an error. Try to keep the number of documents per job below a few hundred.

NEW New Beebox client costing option: Adjust cost to supplier workflow steps

When you link a Beebox project to the Wordbee Translator TMS, you can enable automatic client costing for such a connection. You access the details under "Projects" > "Beebox links". A new costing option "Cost from supplier workflow steps" was added:
With this option, costing is based on the supplier workflow steps created for a given Beebox job. For example, if a supplier workflow has a translation and revision step then the client will be costed for translation and revision.

IMPROVED [Editor] Added options to highlight last editors in the preview widget

It is also possible to highlight segments with a red status.

NEW New QA rule: Flag segments with regular expressions

You can customize QA profiles in Settings > QA Profiles. You run QA from the translation editor or automatically by configuring a workflow profile. Learn more about QA profiles in the documentation: https://documents.wordbee.com/display/WBT/QA+Categories

NEW Workflow setting: New option added for the automatic delivery of files back to client order.

In a project workflow setting you can choose to have deliverables be transferred into a client order automatically, when the workflow for the file is completed. We added a new powerful feature below this option:
* Choose if the deliverable shall be renamed: Append or prepend the document name with the language code.
* Choose the folder in the client order to save the deliverable. Up to now, this was preset to the language code. Now you can choose among language code, language name, any folder name or no folder at all.
I hope you wil find this new option helpful to streamline your operations.
