    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

    We’re happy to announce that we have just released another integration with a online CAT tool: Matecat.

    While it is certainly true that Xbench is a desktop-only tool and Matecat is an online-only tool suprisingly, the integration is very smooth, even magic!

    You can watch it in action in this 4-minute video on YouTube and download the stuff to try it out from our Download page.

    New Community Forum for Xbench!

    We’re happy to announce that we have just put in place a community forum at http://forum.xbench.net.

    The forum is based on the Discourse platform and we’ll be adding typical questions or support issues to it on an ongoing basis so that you can quickly search the forum DB.

    In other words, that besides the intrinsic goal of any forum of eventually connecting the user community, we will also try that over time the forum becomes a conveniently searchable and comprehensive Knowledge Base built over time with actual questions raised by our users.

    We will be monitoring the forum for questions and will endeavor to answer them, although the official support site will continue to be our Contact Support form.

    The Forum will probably the best place for How do I…-like questions, regex questions for Xbench checklists, or for bringing up ideas and suggestions, while using Contact Support is probably the best option if you anticipate that your issue is a bug that most likely will involve sending files to us to reproduce, fix, and verify.

    We hope that you like the new forum and look forward to seeing you there!

    Just for the Record, the Xbench Plugin for Studio Has Been Supporting SDL Studio 2015 for a While Now


    We’ve recently received a few support calls asking us when the Xbench Plugin for SDL Studio will support SDL Studio 2015.

    The truth is that it already has been supporting SDL Studio 2015 it for a while! Namely, SDL Studio 2015 is supported since we rebuilt the installer back in April 23 (almost 4 months ago!), so if you recently installed the Xbench plugin for Studio, there are good chances that your Xbench installation already supports SDL Studio 2015.

    Therefore, if after you upgrade to Studio 2015 the Xbench icon does not already appear in the Studio 2015 Ribbon, just do the following:

    1. Close SDL Studio 2015.
    2. Download and install the latest Xbench plugin from the Xbench Download page.
    3. Start SDL Studio 2015.

    After the above steps, the Xbench icon should appear on your SDL Studio 2015 Ribbon and work exactly on SDL Studio 2015 as it does on SDL Studio 2014.
