    Xbench 3.0 build 1395 released

    We’re happy to announce that we released Xbench 3.0 build 1395. The new build can be downloaded here.

    This build includes support for some additional formats such as memoQ Adriatic, memoQ 2-column rtf files, Dejavu alignment files and Qt Linguist PhraseBooks.

    The Xbench Conector for Memsource now features support for 2-factor authentication and can also connect to other Memsource servers.

    Also the Google Translator Toolkit support has been improved with detection of 100% matches and ICE matches, which allows you to exclude them from QA if they are not part of your scope of work. Be sure to have the Xbench Chrome Extension, and the Xbench Chrome Extension for GTT updated to the latest version (if you have them already installed, Chrome should take care of this automatically).

    The new build also includes a number of usability improvements and bug fixes. You can see a more comprehensive list in the change log.

    We hope you enjoy using Xbench 3.0 build 1395. If you run into any issues or have suggestions, please contact Support.

    Xbench Whitelisted Domain Mode now available for more than one account with the same email domain

    As you probably know, our Domain Mode licenses allow you to cover users for a @domain.com email domain with either a Full Domain Mode license or a Whitelisted Domain Mode license.

    Until now, since we only allowed one Domain Mode license per email domain, if you were an LSP with several teams in several countries, you either had to enable Full Domain Mode to cover all teams worldwide or configure one of the teams with a Whitelisted Domain Mode license and the rest of the teams with the Classic license.

    Starting today, you can write us to request Whitelisted Domain Mode for each of the teams, as long as the team in question meets the requirement of a history of 10 years purchased for the account.

    New Xbench Chrome Extension for Google Translator Toolkit (GTT)!

    With the release last week of support for Google Translator Toolkit (GTT) in our Xbench Chrome Extension, we immediately received two feature requests:

    • Include several GTT documents in the same Xbench QA session, not just the current one
    • Use Edit Source (Ctrl+E) in Xbench to go right at the segment in GTT

    We’re happy to announce that we are now releasing a new GTT-specific Chrome Extension with exactly these features, the new ApSIC Xbench Entension for GTT.

    For more details, see the announcement in our Xbench Forum.

    Xbench 3.0 Build 1369 Adds Support for Google Translator Toolkit (GTT)

    We’re happy to announce that we’ve just released Xbench 3.0 build 1369, which adds support for Google Translator Toolkit (GTT).

    The support for GTT also requires the latest Xbench Chrome Extension (version 1.0.6).

    Once you have the latest Xbench 3.0 and Xbench Chrome Extension installed on your machine, the steps to instantly load your current GTT document in Xbench for QA are:

    1. Open the Google Translator Toolkit document in Chrome. You will notice that the Xbench Chrome Extension icon will become pink.
    2. Click the Xbench Chrome Extension icon.
    3. Double-click the .xbp file that is downloaded. Xbench will load with the segments for the GTT document in Xbench so that you can run a QA as usual.

    We hope you like this new integration. If you have any issues or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Seamless Integration of Xbench with Matecat – How to Instantly QA a Matecat Job with Xbench
