In a workflow which uses integration with CAT tools (memoQ, Memsource, SDL Trados Studio, XTM), it is possible to include jobs which will be performed without the use of the CAT tool.

Possible Applications

Before sending files to the CAT tool, it may be necessary to perform some kind of pre-processing, e.g.:

  • anonymization,
  • OCR,
  • other ways of conversion to editable format,
  • optimizing the file to achieve optimal segmentation.

After receiving ready files from the CAT tool, it may be necessary to perform some kind of post-processing, e.g.:

  • adjusting formatting to the target text,
  • DTP,
  • preparing PDF files,
  • converting to target format.

Workflow Configuration

In order to enable pre-processing of files, job(s) must be added before the External Project Preparation job.

In order to enable post-processing of files, job(s) must be added after the External Project Finalization job.

Examples

In memoQ, Memsource, XTM:


 

In SDL Trados Studio:


 

For the explanation of the differences between CAT Tools (the usage of the Prepare Packages action), please compare the articles:

In such case the actual course of the project would be:

  1. Pre-processing of files outside of the CAT tool
  2. Automated preparation of project in the CAT tool
  3. Translation in the CAT tool
  4. Proofreading in the CAT tool
  5. Automated finalization of project in the CAT tool (download target files from the CAT tool)
  6. Post-processing of files outside of the CAT tool
