- Select the Project
- Select the Workflow Manager
- Select the Locale pair
- Select a Target Encoding
- Add one or more language locales to Leverage From
- Click Next. The Graphical Workflow opens
- Create the workflow needed by clicking the elements and then insert them by clicking the workspaceError creating thumbnail: File missing
- Add explanatory text for the arrows. For example “Send to translator” and “Accept”
- Right-click each Activity Type and select Properties
- Add the details needed for each activity:
- For translation, select Translation1 as the Activity Type and either A selected user or All qualified users as the Participant(s)
- For review, select review_linguistic1 as the Activity Type and either A selected user or All qualified users as the Participant(s)
- Click Save
The workflow is now configured. You can duplicate it across other languages as needed.
To duplicate a workflow:
- Select an existing workflow
- Copy the first part of the name up until the source and target locale. In this example, D_Divisions_ACTIVE
- Click Duplicate. The Duplicate Workflow with Different Locale Pairs window opens
- Paste the workflow name into Name
- Select the Project, the Source Locale and Target Locale, and then click >>
- Click Save
Check every activity to make sure they have correct participants:
- Click the workflow to edit it
- Click Next
- Right-click every activity and select Properties:
- One user only: Click Cancel to retain the All qualified users option
- No users or anyone: No user is assigned to the activity
The correct workflow is added using the same naming rule.
