Welcome to a new tooltip about Transit NXT. This time we'll see how to export an unfinished translation using colours to distinguish the parts of the text according to the level of intervention they have been subjected to (for example, to make out translated text from as yet untranslated text). When could this be useful?

Compacting reference material

Language pairs created during translation in Transit NXT can be used as reference material for future projects. It is a good idea to store the language pairs from previous projects in a single centralized folder, so that you just add that folder as reference material in new projects. Depending on your workflow and volume, this reference material will grow with time, perhaps too much, but there's something we can do to reduce its size.

Including terminology in language variants when packing projects

Welcome to a new tooltip about Transit NXT. This one is specially addressed to project managers, who are the ones likely to be confronted with the issue explained here. Let's say you have a new project, to translate some documents from American English into Spanish, but the available dictionaries contain term pairs in British English and Spanish only (or in the main). That should not be a problem, you might think, and indeed it should not be in practice but as long as you know what to do.

Using public corpora in Transit NXT

Welcome to a new tooltip about Transit NXT. Today we would like to mention a very useful resource. The translation workload of some big international institutions generates a lot of reference material, which can be used by anyone if they release it in a suitable form, for example the translation memory exchange format (TMX).

Use reference material for another language variant

Hi there, welcome to a new tooltip about Transit NXT. If you manage projects in different language variants in Transit NXT, you might be interested in what follows. Imagine we have done some translations for the language combination, say, ESP->ENG (from Spanish into British English), and therefore we have some reference material (language pairs) in that combination.

How to use a translation memory from another tool

Welcome to a new tooltip about Transit NXT. In this tooltip we will see how to integrate data coming from a source other than Transit NXT into your translation memory and the role that exchange standards play in that. Let's see a simple case. Imagine a client has asked you to translate the new version (v. 2.0) of a document that was already translated by someone else into your target language.

Introduction to regular expressions in Transit NXT

Regular expressions, also called regex or regexp for short, are a very powerful functionality that allows certain text operations to be performed in an ergonomic way, thus optimizing workflows and saving time. Being an advanced functionality, it certainly takes some effort to master. But it always pays off.

Adding a translation memory to the project

Welcome to a new tooltip about Transit NXT. Today we'll deal with pretty basic stuff, in fact one of the most basic operations one must know to use this tool (or any CAT tool) productively and one that makes computer-assisted translation tools what they are. Their basic principle is don't reinvent the wheel, recycle instead. You do this thanks to the translation memory functionality.
