Proofreading files with Transit NXT

The Proofreading mode is very useful for you as a reviewer or a project manager to review a translated file. Working in the Proofreading mode allows you to review specific segments of a file in which segments have been assigned different statuses. You can of course use the segment filter provided by Transit NXT, but the Proofreading mode automatically takes you to those segments that have to be reviewed instead of you having to filter segments manually.
