Restricting Access

Administrators can restrict access to TMs to particular users. Access is configured on TM basis.

  • The TMs that are listed in TM Management
  • The TMs that are displayed when creating or editing a Translation Memory Profile
  • The TMs that are available for searching in the Corpus Browser

Access restrictions only apply to configuration changes and not to leverage. All TMs that are configured in a TM Profile are used for leverage, regardless of whether the job submitter or translator can access them.

To restrict access to a TM:

Terminology Management Translation and Review Process

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.

The new process is:

  1. Create a terminology. If another target language termbase is needed, add it here first. Once the termbase is created, it is defined as automatically re-indexed


  2. Select the termbase in Create a New Project

  3. In New File Profile, select Yes for Terminology Approval. Workflow activities can consist of more than just two activities, translation and review

  4. Create a job

  5. Finish all activities in the workflow to export the job. Segments are populated in the TM and Terminology

  6. Create another job with the same source file. The translator finds the terms with their termbase matches in segment editor
