You can save translations of lines within an object immediately and at any time without having to make any decisions in the proposal pool.
The system assigns the status Modified to all translation lines whose contents do not match valid proposals in the proposal pool. They are highlighted in yellow until you perform appropriate activities in the proposal pool. This means that objects which still contain modified texts will remain in your worklist until you maintain the proposal pool for these lines of text, so that the system can assign them the status Translated.
Choose Save in the short text editor at any time during translation.
