    Installgs8.jpg


    Note: Create Database should be checked for a brand new GlobalSight installation. This creates the database tables needed for GlobalSight.
  2. Click Install. This starts the installation process for GlobalSight
  3. If Create database is checked, click Yes on the warning that pops up. Do this on the first installation of GlobalSight, or if you want to re-create the GlobalSight tables
    Installgs9.jpg

  4. Click Close once Installation Successful appears
    Installgs10.jpg

    Installgs11.jpg

GlobalSight has now been installed.

Check the wizard console for any errors that may have been arisen during the database creation.

Note: When creating the database, the installer also copies the necessary LDAP files to OpenLDAP and configures OpenLDAP. You can then skip the configuring OpenLDAP Directory Server section.

Configuring GlobalSight Web Services (optional)

The Web services API allows any client - regardless of implementation technology or operating system - to connect and exchange data with GlobalSight.

To configure the Web Services:

  1. Log in to GlobalSight as a superadmin
  2. Click Remote IP Filter for Webservices
  3. Click New to add the remote IP address information. For example:
    Installgs12.jpg

  4. Click Save

You can use an asterisk (”*”) as a wildcard in place of the last IP address parameter. For example, the IP address "192.168.30.*" allows all network IP addresses that begin with 192.168.30 to use GlobalSight Web services.

Installing the Aligner (optional)

Alignment is the process by which segments in previously-translated files are matched with one another to create translation memory.

The process is partially automated, and the language resource is responsible for confirming the alignment between the source and target segments. This process allows translation memory to be created rapidly from content previously translated.

To install the GlobalSight Aligner (Galigner):

  1. Unzip the galign-installer.zip to a temporary location
    For example: c:\Galigner
  2. Open that location
    • For Windows: Click setup.exe
    • For Mac: Double-click galign-installer.jar
    • For UNIX: Run java –jar galign-installer.jar

Installing the MS Office Converters

Installing .NET Framework 3.5

  1. Open the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 3.5, which is included in the GlobalSight package. You can also download it
  2. Double-click NETCFSetupv35.msi
  3. Accept all defaults and follow though the installation
  4. Re-start the computer after the installation finishes (default)

Installing the MS Office 2003 or 2007 converters

The version of the MS Office converter should correspond to the Office version on the machine. Different versions cannot be installed on the same machine.

  1. Create a shared directory (<ConversionDir> for the purposes of this document), which contains your source files. This should match the directory that you set in the Install Wizard – Optional Packages – MS Office 2003/2007 Adapter Conversion Directory
    For example: d:\WINFILES
  2. Under the <ConversionDir>, create a directory for the MS Office format you want to import. For example, “excel”, “word” or “PowerPoint”. Word is used for the purposes of this document
  3. Enable the Microsoft Word Adapter during the installation of GlobalSight by setting the following installation parameters:
    • Microsoft Word Adapter Conversion Directory [D:\WINFILES], as in D:\<ConversionDir>. Do not use a trailing slash in the name. If the conversion directory is n a different computer and is being accessed over the network, do not use a mapped drive. Use the UNC path instead. For example: \\server\WINFILES. Mapped drives do not work if the server has been set to start up automatically on reboot
  4. Extract GlobalSight_MSOffice2003_Converter.zip or GlobalSight_MSOffice2007_Converter.zip
  5. Double-click setup.exe to start the installation

Both MS Office 2003 and 2007 converters need .NET framework v3.5.

To start the converters:

  1. Click Start->Programs->GlobalSight->Office 2007 Converters
  2. Specify the Conversion Directory
  3. Click Start All

  2. Copy <FrameMaker 9 Converter>\fmconv.dll to <Adobe FrameMaker9 Installation Path>\fminit\Plugins folder
  3. Add the following line to <FrameMaker9 Installation Path>\maker.ini [APIClients] section.
    fmconv=Standard, GlobalSight FMConvert, fminit\Plugins\fmconv.dll, all

To start the converter:

  1. Click Start->Programs->GlobalSight->FrameMaker 9 Converter
  2. Specify the FrameMaker 9 Path

  1. Stop the FrameMaker 9 Converter
  2. Click Control Panel->Add or Remove Programs to remove the FrameMaker 9 Converter

Installing the InDesign and Illustrator Converter

The version of the converter for InDesign CS2/CS3/CS4/CS5 and Illustrator CS2 should correspond to the version on the machine. Different versions cannot be installed on the same machine.

Uninstalling the converter:

  1. Click Stop
  2. Remove the Adobe Converter directory

Configuring GlobalSight for Auto-Import (optional)

This feature allows you to import files automatically into the system.

Prerequisites

Set up GlobalSight with at least one Localization Profile and one File Profile so that the settings you enter below can accurately reference GlobalSight objects for processing and routing.

Setting Auto-Import parameters

  1. Edit the file <application_home>/autoFileImport.properties
  2. Use the table below to enter the correct parameters for your GlobalSight installation
    Changes to this file require a GlobalSight restart
Parameter Description
disableAutoImport Flag (true or false) to enable the entire Auto-Import feature. If it is false, then no directories are watched for auto-import.

Default: false

pollingFrequency The polling frequency in seconds. This is how often the GlobalSight polls the directories for changes.

Default: 60

BatchSize This determines the number of files to import in a batch when changes have been detected. This only matters if the associated Localization Profile uses Batch instead of WordCount to determine the job size.

For example, if, it has been determined that three files have changed when polling, either three batches containing one file each can be sent, or one batch containing three files The values allowed are “one” or “all” Default: one

AssumeUnencounteredFilesAreNew Flag (true or false) to tell GlobalSight whether or not files in a previously un-scanned directory are new. For example, if the directory en_US\pressReleases exists and has five files before the first time GlobalSight is run, then all five files are identified as new, files and imported if the property is set to true.

If the property is set to false, then the five files are not be imported unless are modified later. A sixth file added to the directory is b identified as new and imported regardless of the setting Default: true

Specifying the directories to watch

  1. Edit the file <application_home>/autoFileImport.map
  2. Enter one line for each directory that you want to watch. Enter each line in the format:
    <directory> | <jobNamePrefix> | <FileProfileName>
    • <directory> is the directory that you want to watch. Watching is recursive, so sub-directories will also be watched
    • <FileProfileName> is the File Profile in GlobalSight that corresponds to the files in this directory

For example, the entry:
en_US\pressReleases | PressReleases | My_en_US_HTML_Files specifies that the directory <globalsight_docs>\en_US\pressReleases is watched by GlobalSight for new and changed files. The files imported from this directory will be processed as specified in the GlobalSight File Profile “My_en_US_HTML_Files”.

Preparing documents for import

  1. Create the document directory that you entered during the installation of the GlobalSight files
    • For example: d:\welocalize\docs
  2. Create a sub-directory where you store your source files
    • For example: d:\welocalize\docs\en_US
  3. Put the documents you want to import in this directory
  4. If your source language is different, replace en_US with your source language locale. For example: es_MX.

To stop GlobalSight in Console Mode, press Ctrl+C in the JBoss Console or close the JBoss Console directly.

Logging in to GlobalSight

  1. Open Internet Explorer and go to http://server.domain.com:port/globalsight/
    "server.domain.com" is the value entered for " J2EE App Server Hostname or IP Address"
    "port" is the value entered for " J2EE App Server HTTP port"
  2. Username: superAdmin, GlobalSight Administrator user.
