Easyling Release Notes – February 2014

Another month has passed, and Easyling underwent another round of upgrades, fixes. We also exhibited at memoQFest Americas 2014, expanded our Support Team and created a 24-minute-long Training Video. And we keep hiring: JavaScript/DART frontend gurus, Java/Google AppEngine experts, welcome to Budapest! 

Limited crawling has been added: if you have to quote/process a limited set of URLs provided by the client, use “Add pages”, and Copy/Paste the links and consider it done. It’s also possible to have Easyling visit all the URLs listed in the sitemap (usually /sitemap.xml), used as a complement to robots.txt to advertise URLs to search engines. It can be a handy remedy if the navigation within the site is created by JavaScript only.

Paste the link to your sitemap.xml, and have Easyling crawl only the pages others can see!

A cut above the rest: the Advanced Settings menu contains features that can make your life significantly easier. For now, you have two options, but more are in the pipe.
Pattern matching variable content with Regular Expressions
 : dynamically generated segments can now be translated easier by providing Easyling with pattern masks to exclude the dynamic parts of generated text.
Freezing page- and word-lists: Easyling can freeze its translation memory of your site, meaning that no new pages or source segments will be added. This feature is useful if translation has already been started, so word counts stay constant even if new content is appearing on the original site.

Advanced features, such as regular expression matching or page-/word-list freezing, can be used from the Advanced Settings menu

Enhanced interoperability with external CAT tools: based on your source language, Easyling can now apply industry standard segmentation rules (SRX), splitting the scanned text into sentences for better Translation Memory leverage in your external CAT tools with XLIFF export/import.

Segmentation rules can break text up into sentences automatically.

Mass-confirming is a thing: you can now confirm all entries on a given page with one click of your mouse, or reject them just as easily.

New access control roles: Advanced Project Managers can be designated, having full access to project as owner but inviting others (this right can be provided separately).

Advanced project managers can change project attributes if the owner is unavailable

New access control roles: Linguist for translation, proofreading or client approval can be invited with very limited access to the dashboard using the new “Simplified Dashboard” role.

No frills, no unnecessary features, just the plain necessities

Even greater control over your localization: outgoing links can be rewritten to point to different sites depending on the selected language.

Ownership of project is now transferable: once you’re done with the translation, you can hand over the ownership to the client, so that they can pay for the monthly hosting fee.

Before leaving, the owner can transfer ownership (and all powers) so the project can continue

Content localization: HTML elements, marked appropriately in the code (using the class “EL_swap”), can have their markup edited in the translation view as well, not just their content, for even greater control over the final look of your site. Click to read more on this.

We’ve also fixed a bunch of bugs and spent hours on improving the overall experience while using Easyling Dashboard, making it faster and more responsive than ever :)

A tutorial video has been created, and is available on Youtube. Comments, feedback, and questions are always welcome! Help us improve, so we can help you!

Last but not least, we’re growing: Zalan has joined the team as “Support and Happiness Engineer”, ready to answer your questions at support@easyling.com.

And we keep hiring! Frontend developers (JavaScript/DART/HTML5/CSS3/LESS), Backend experts (Java/Google AppEngine), welcome to Budapest!Welcome to Budapest!
