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 seeding it on an ongoing basis with typical questions or support issues, 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!

We’re happy to announce that we’ve just released a new Xbench 3.0 build and it is available for download.
The main new additions in this build are:
- Support for Wordfast Pro 4. Wordfast Pro 4 introduces a new XLIFF-based bilingual file format, with file extension .txlf that will replace format .txml in earlier versions of Wordfast Pro. To load files into Xbench in the new Wordfast Pro format, you should select file type Wordfast Pro TXML/TXLF.
- Support for Déjà Vu/Idiom termbases. A new file type has been added to support termbases in .wstb and .dvtdb format.
- Support for memoQ termbases in CVS format. Now Xbench can load memoQ termbases in memoQ CVS format. To load files in this format, choose Xbench file type memoQ File.
- Support for Translation Workspace XLIIF files. Now Xbench recognizes Translation Workspace .xlz files in its XLIFF file type.
As usual, in the change log you can see the list of changes and additions in this build.
If you have any feedback to share for this build, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Just for the Record, the Xbench Plugin for Studio Has Been Supporting SDL Studio 2015 for a While Now
Posted: August 12th, 2015 under ApSIC Xbench.
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:
- Close SDL Studio 2015.
- Download and install the latest Xbench plugin from the Xbench Download page.
- 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.

We’re happy to announce that the Xbench 3.0 manuals are now available in Italian! The new Italian manuals can be downloaded from our Documentation page.

We’re very thankful to Giacomo for his contribution to make Xbench easier to use to the community of Italian users!

We’re happy to announce that we’ve just released build 6 for Xbench Connector for Memsource. You can download it now from here.
The main new features in this new beta build of the Xbench Connector for Memsource are the following:
- If the Memsource project has termbases attached, the Run QA in Xbench will allow you to include also these termbases as a reference in your QA (this is exactly how it is done in the Xbench plugin for Studio).
- If the Memsource project has workflow steps defined, you can compare files from two workflow steps. It is useful for auditing/assessing the work of a reviewer or to create a report of changes for feedback to translator. The Comparison Report is the same obtained with ApSIC Comparator if you are familiar with it (a bilingual table of changes with tracked changes)
We hope you enjoy these new features in the Xbench Connector form Memsource. As usual, if you have any suggestion or bug to report, please do not hesitate to contact us.

And remember that you can also change the number of users any time during your subscription to match your needs at all times.

We’re happy to announce that we’ve just released the Xbench Connector for Memsource. The beta is available to all Memsource Ultimate Admin and PM users.
Memsource has been quietly morphing from a cool cloud-based translation tool into a full-fledged translation platform with a powerful API. We thought it was a good idea to capitalize on this transformation into a platform and we figured out some ways to bring ApSIC Xbench integration with Memsource to a new level.
The Xbench Connector for Memsource is a Windows app that can be downloaded from our Downloads page.
The Xbench Connector for Memsource allows you to:
- Choose a project and target language on the Memsource platform and instantly start a QA session in Xbench 3.0 for that project and language (this is very similar to how the Xbench Plugin for Trados Studio works). Also, if your Memsource project has more than one workflow step, you can also choose the workflow step for the QA session.
- When you find a translation issue in a Memsource file in Xbench, instanly fix it with Memsource Editor right at the segment with Edit Source.
- Quickly keep an eye on the progress of your Memsource projects in the cloud.
The current requirements for the connector are:
- A Memsource user with Memsource API access (currently, Admin or PM in Memsource Ultimate Edition).
- ApSIC Xbench 3.0 build 1299 or later (available from here)
- Memsource Editor for Windows (available from here)
We hope you like the functionality brought by the Xbench Connector for Memsource. As usual, if you run into any issues running the connector, please let us know.
