Converter for Adobe InDesign CS4

GlobalSight now works with Adobe InDesign CS4 files.

Contact your admin to install and enable it.

Addition of an RSS feed

With the RSS Reader feature, you can now subscribe to a feed URL to read RSS data and import it into GlobalSight, to translate it and make the translated feed available.

Contact your admin to enable it.

Support for Microsoft Machine Translation

Microsoft Translator is now supported in this GlobalSight release.

Contact your admin to enable it.

GlobalSight Editions

The new GlobalSight Editions feature allows GlobalSight to talk to another GlobalSight edition on a different network, to transfer work from one edition to the next.

Contact your admin to enable it.

Ability to add/edit/delete files from a job

You can now add, edit or delete files from an ongoing job.

For details, see Making Changes to Ongoing Jobs in Managing GlobalSight Projects.

TM sharing between GlobalSights

One GlobalSight instance can now be leveraged against a Translation Memory Profile located in another.

The remote TM is used as a Reference TM in the Translation Memory Profile, not a Storage TM.

Contact your admin to enable it.

New Terminology Management Translation and Review Process

This release of GlobalSight introduces a new process for terminology management translation and review.

For example, an uploaded Word document goes through the traditional work-flow with translation and review steps as usual. When the final activity is finished and the job is exported, the source and target contents are imported automatically into the TermBase associated with the workflow.

Re-setting of passwords

In this release of GlobalSight, it is possible to re-set a password using the Forgot Password link on the login page.

Ability to retrieve GlobalSight usernames

GlobalSight can now also retrieve usernames that have been forgotten or lost using a Forgot Username link on the login page.

GlobalSight SSL Support

GlobalSight now supports Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL is the predecessor of Transport Layer Security (TLS), and both are cryptographic protocols that provide security for communications over networks such as the Internet.

TLS and SSL encrypt the segments of network connections at the Application Layer to ensure secure end-to-end transit at the Transport Layer.

You can use SSL using Internet Explorer and adding the URL to login to GlobalSight with a HTTPS connection.

You can also use SSL with the Desktop Icon.

Contact your admin to enable it.

New TTX format for off-line files

GlobalSight has a new TTX format for off-line files. For details, see Translating TTX-format files in the Translating with GlobalSight document.

Support for OpenOffice file formats

In this release, GlobalSight works with all of the main OpenOffice file formats including ODF Text Document (ODT, OpenOffice Writer), ODF Presentation (ODP, OpenOffice Impress) and ODF Spreadsheet (ODS, OpenOffice Calc).

For details, see Configuring the Open Office Filter.

XML filter

GlobalSight can now control how the data in XML files is presented to the translator. For example the XML Filter can tell GlobalSight which parts of the file are translatable content, and which parts are non-translatable (such as HTML markup).

For a description of each item in the filter, see Configuring the XML filter.

Enabling of IP filtering at the company level

IPs can now be filtered at the company level. A new check-box Enable IP Filter has been added to the GlobalSight sub-company setting. The default is checked.

Contact your admin to enable it.
