All settings are centralized into an easy-to-use file profile that the user selects when creating a new translation job.

The file profile ties all of the components necessary together - the localization profile, workflow, project, TM profile, and so on.

Setup overview, with the file profile at the centre




















Creating a job using a file profile

Jobs are routed to the correct users according to how the workflows, activities, users and roles are configured.

Selecting a file profile means that you are also selecting the localization profile and workflow that are associated with it. One or more workflows can be associated with a localization profile.

To determine the assignees, GlobalSight checks the language pair and activities within a workflow.

For example, only the users that are associated with the Locale Pair English (United States) [en_US] -> German (Germany) [de_DE] and the Activity Type Translation1 can translate files that are associated with the en_US_de_DE_T workflow.

Determining the assignee based on the locale pair and activities


You can see all potential assignees of a particular activity by setting Participant(s) from All qualified users to A selected user.

For example, globalsightanyone and globalsightadmin are both potential assignees because both are associated with the locale pair English (United States) [en_US] -> German (Germany) [de_DE] and the activity type Translation1.

Viewing all potential assignees

Users must then be assigned a specific locale pair and activity type. This is done by assigning the user a role when creating them.

Assigning roles to a user

This role is tied to a specific locale pair and activity types.

For example, the user account globalsightadmin is associated to a role that is tied to the locale pair English (United States) [en_US] -> German (Germany) [de_DE] and the activity type Translation1.
