Accessing a Proposal Pool Entry in SLPP

Use

You can access proposal pool entries in transaction SLPP, to display or edit proposals for a specific source text.

You can access proposal pool entries in the following ways:

·        By entering a source text

·        By entering a target text

Prerequisites

You need to enter the source and target languages of the proposal pool in question in the Language field in the Source group box, and the Language field in the Target group box.

To change the quality status of a proposal, the exact text of this proposal must be highlighted at the top of the proposal pool (otherwise the  icons are not visible). You must therefore enter the text of the proposal you want to create or change in the Text field in the Target group box. Then choose Find Proposal Pool Entry.
