Report Improvements

Report UI Improvements

The Reports page has been improved:

  • You can now click Reports->Recent Reports to check for reports that may take a long time to run.

    The Recent Reports window pops up showing a list of the reports that are currently in progress.

    You can then download the report from the top window once it is generated.

  • You are warned if they try to run a report that is already generating
  • You are warned when running reports on a large number of jobs at once
  • You can cancel a report that is currently generating

This applies to the Activity Duration Report, Character Count Report, Comments Analysis Report, Detailed Word Counts By Job Report, Online Jobs Report, Reviewers Comments Report, Summary Report, and Translations Edit Report.

Comments Analysis Report Improvements

A number of improvements have been made to the Comments Analysis Report:

  1. You can now run the Comments Analysis Report for multiple jobs and combine them into one single file
  2. The report now loads a lot quicker than before
  3. You can now search the report by the date range entered

  4. The language is now appended to the report in the format CommentsAnalysisReport-(2632Test002_147461517)(52)-EN_FR.xlsx when the report is saved

Reports in xlsx Format

GlobalSight now generates all reports in xlsx format. You no longer need to rename files to use them.

Both the Translations Edit Report and Reviewers Comments Report have been simplified and tidied up.

Translation Status for Offline Upload

Translators can now check the translation status when uploading the translations during offline work. A percentage shows for each file uploaded.

Results below 100% are highlighted in red.


You can check the Translated Text percentage, which updates every time the page is refreshed and files are uploaded.


Translated Text added to My Activities - In Progress

Translators can now check the Translated Text percentage in My Activities - In Progress, without needing to open the activity details.


"Are You Sure" Check for Untranslated Segments

A message now pops up when translators try to click Task Completed on a task that still contains untranslated segments.

Translators can then check the segments and either translate or approve the segments to remain un-translated.

  1. Click Task Completed. The warning pops up

  2. Open the file in the Inline Editor by right-clicking it under Primary Target Files and selecting Open in Inline Editor. The editor opens

  3. Filter by Not Translated to see the segments that have not yet been translated

  4. Select the files and click Approve. The percentage translated shows beside each file

  5. Close the editor
  6. Click Translated Text to confirm that the segments are 100% translated
  7. Click Task Completed again. The job completes without error

Job Creation Status

You are now shown the number and status of jobs that you are creating.


New TM Profile option to stop search after finding 100% match

You can now set the TM Profile to make sure that GlobalSight no longer searches any additional TMs once a 100% match is found.


Standard Smartbox Options

Standard configurations are now available for using Smartbox with GlobalSight.

Phase 1 has been implemented for case study 3.

Connector to IP Translator for Park

GlobalSight now works with IP Translator, the MT engine used by the Park account.
