In the past month, the rollout of the Auditing Log has finished. Available for project owners from under the Dashboard, this log shows every project event that has occurred, such as the addition/removal of target languages, new users being added or removed, XLIFF exports and imports, scans and wordcounts, and many more. Due to the data collection scheme, we only have data available from September 15, even for already-existing projects. In the future, expect further events to be added to the auditing log’s display.
The Workbench also received a round of optimizations, so now performance is better than ever, and scrolling is noticeably smoother, even when many thousands of segments are loaded into memory for display.
We also created a new feature that enables users to exclude individual segments from translation (not to be confused with the ability to lock segments to prevent changes). Externalized segments do not appear in XLIFF exports, and are not shown by default on the Workbench (even when they are shown, they are not editable). This comes hand-in-hand with a change on the Workbench, renaming the previous “Mass-confirm” button to “Bulk Actions”, as it now houses not only mass confirmation, but exclusion (or inclusion) of entries as well.
We’re also adding the ability to define a default state for new segments to be added in the future (either via scan or viewing a page through the proxy): new entries may be added as “Externalized” (not shown in exports, not shown for translation), “Pending” (to be decided upon later, but otherwise accessible), or “Approved” (the segment has been approved for translation, thus it will be shown in exports and the Workbench, letting the linguists do their thing). This default setting is available in the Advanced Settings menu, defaulting to “Approved”.
Lastly, we have completed our migration to the HTTPS protocol – we have now created a secure channel across the entire interface, with eavesdropping being (almost) impossible even when editing.Dedicated demo for You Tweet
