September '19 Product Update

Welcome to the September 2019 Product Newsletter. This month, we're happy to introduce two important features that provide users with more context—context for translators about the documents they are translating, and context for users reviewing translated documents.

Read on to learn more about these features and how to see a demo.


Target document preview

Target document preview allows users to view a document's target, translated text in isolation, as if it were a document itself. This allows translators and reviewers to read translated text in its own context, structured to appear like the document source, including line breaks, paragraphs, and text formatting.

Target document preview is available within Lilt's CAT Editor.

View segment metadata

Some source documents contain metadata, or context about the text to be translated. This includes information describing what the source text is (e.g. titles, names, synopses, etc.) and also supplemental information describing what the text is about (e.g. web page URLs, supplemental pages, etc.)

If such metadata exists, Lilt will now display it in the Segment metadata viewer, a new option in Lilt's CAT Editor.
