Translating Objects via a Worklist

After you have called up a worklist, you can access the objects that it contains to translate them.

You have the following two options:

·        Accessing an individual object with a double-click, and returning to the worklist after translating it

·        Using sequential processing to translate all objects under a specific object type in succession, without having to return to the worklist

Translating Individual Objects in a Worklist

...

       1.      Expand your worklist tree to display the objects contained in it.

       2.      Place your cursor on an object and double-click it.

The system branches directly to the short text editor or long text editor, depending on whether the object you double-clicked is a short text or long text.

       3.      Translate the object and choose Save.

       4.      Return to your worklist by choosing Back (F3).

       5.      Repeat this procedure until you have translated all objects in your worklist.

Using Sequential Processing

You can translate objects sequentially. This means that the system calls up the objects that require translating in sequence. This depends on how you have defined your worklist settings. Proceed as follows:

...

       1.      First, ensure that your worklist settings enable sequential processing.

       1.      Expand your worklist tree to display the objects contained in it.

       2.      Place your cursor on the first object in a list of objects under an object type.

       3.      Choose Sequential Processing.

The system branches directly to the short text editor or long text editor (depending on whether the object you are processing belongs to a short or long text object type).

       4.      Translate the object and choose Save.

       5.      To branch to the next object in your worklist (without having to return to your worklist and double-click it yourself), choose the  icon.

If you need to branch to the previous object, choose the  icon.

       6.      Repeat steps 5 and 6.

After you translate the last object underneath this object type, the system returns to the worklist.

       7.      Now place your cursor on the first object underneath another object type and choose Sequential Processing again.

       8.      Repeat steps 4 to 8 until you have translated all objects in your worklist.
