As we approach the end of 2021, XTM International is closing the loop on a series of notable product developments with XTM Cloud 12.9, the final release of the calendar year.
Users will appreciate enhancements that deliver smoother project management, greater connectivity and Workbench shortcuts that save even more of their time. We’re also introducing additional REST API functionality and have increased our focus on enhancing how new functionality works.
Smoother project management
The functionality that enabled users to set up filter templates in MS Excel has now been extended to include MS Word. It’s now straightforward to create templates in Word, swiftly excluding unnecessary text.
A new searchable value, “in progress”, enables project managers to search all in progress projects without the need to select workflow steps that are “not finished” or “not started”.
Workflow assignments can now be fully automated at project level, even in cases where a project template is not used during project creation.
XTM Cloud 12.9 supports new languages and variants including Krio, the Latin scripts for Hindi and Hausa.
The attention to speed and efficiency in XTM Cloud 12.9 streamlines projects from start to finish. Tooltips in XTM Workbench now include information about available shortcuts, while at the same time new shortcuts can be set for faster navigation. In other words, XTM Cloud 12.9 helps users start, manage and finish important assignments entirely on their own terms.
XTM Cloud 12.9 underlines XTM’s position at the heart of a thriving localization ecosystem. A new connector has been developed with market-leading web CMS and digital marketing suite Optimizely. In addition, XTM Connect – AEM has been updated to align with the standards of the new release of AEM Cloud.
As machine translation continues to be an important communication tool for speakers of minority languages, XTM continues to be its champion. Google-supported languages including Turkmen, Kinyarwanda, Tatar, Uyghur and Odia can now be processed in XTM Cloud. Our partnership with SAP goes from strength to strength, with XTM Cloud now integrating with SAP Translation Hub. SAP celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2022, and has stayed at the cutting edge of technology with a machine translation solution that dovetails expertly with XTM Cloud. The SmartMATE MT engine now improves the accuracy of inline tag placement, saving time and effort in post-editing.
DeepL integration has been updated to support Danish as a source language. And our pioneering work in NLP means that monolingual term extraction has been refined so the most relevant terms can appear at the top of a terminology list.
A change is as good as a REST
XTM Cloud 12.9 features a new REST API method enabling users to get, assign or change step due dates at all workflow levels. In addition, the REST API method to obtain statistics has been extended to now return EDC scores aggregated on job level. Additionally, it is now possible to find a project by its name as well as decide if a new project can be created if another project with the same name already exists.
XTM International Product Manager Sara Basile is delighted to end 2021 on a high note:
“For many of our clients, COVID has made 2021 a challenging year. It’s been gratifying to hear their positive feedback on upgrades to XTM Cloud and I’m proud of the development work that has helped so many organizations to keep growing and stay profitable. With 12.9, we’ve kept our eye on the ball, added additional stress testing, and continued to add value in localization project management. XTM International is ending the year where we started it, on the very top rung of the Translation Management System ladder. We look forward to reaching even higher in 2022 and continuing to add value precisely where our users tell us they need it. Because if it matters to you, it matters to us.”
