In this tooltip, we shall learn how to automatically switch between keyboard layouts while translating in Transit NXT. You may have defined several input languages in Windows to make it possible to enter text in different languages using the respective keyboard layout. The currently selected input language is indicated in the Windows taskbar as seen in the screenshot below:
In the previous tooltip, we saw how to insert markups 'on the fly'. Let's explore some more options for making sure that all markups are in place before exporting the document. Transit NXT provides you with an option of checking markups after translation.
Working with markup ID's can be quite tedious especially if the segments have a lot of markups. And it is not possible to avoid markups because if they are not inserted correctly, you may not be able to export your file. Therefore markups require special care while translation. Let's first understand what a markup ID is.
Notes is a very useful and practical feature provided by Transit NXT. As a project manager, you can enter notes in the "Source" field of the Notes window to draw the translator's attention on particular segments. And as a translator, you can enter notes in the "Target" field of the Notes window for pretranslated segments for example, or point out instances of unclear wording in the source text. Lets see how this works.
Translating into R2L languages like Arabic, Hebrew, etc. requires special care, especially when some segments are bidirectional, i.e., they contain both R2L and L2R sequences of text like the one shown below:
We are back again with another set of very useful shortcuts!! This time we will see some shortcuts that can be used while translating with dictionaries.
We are back again with another interesting and useful mini-post! We shall see a quick tip to save time while translating in the Transit NXT translation editor.
Sometimes, a project has to be split up between several translators so as to be able to meet the deadline, with the result that internal repetitions might be translated inconsistently by different translators. Transit's Internal Repetition Revision Mode enables you to solve that problem by revising all repeated ocurrences of segments throughout the entire publication.
