R68 Kiribati: Transcription, TMs as XLS, work experience and more



Freelancers who offer transcription services can now add that service to their profiles. To find a transcription specialist, select “Transcription” in the “Service” field when searching in the Marketplace.

New API method for getting the list of services and prices from the profile

We’ve added a new method to the Smartcat API: /api/LSP/v1/profile/{accountId:guid} It can be used to obtain information about your own services and prices and use that information on corporate portals, CRMs or any other compatible systems.

Exporting and importing TMs as XLSX files

You can now download translation memories as Excel spreadsheets and upload the previously imported and edited XLSX files back to Smartcat. Make sure you keep the file’s structure consistent. Learn about requirements for importing XLSX files in our Help Center.

Adding work experience in freelancer profiles

Freelancers can now share more information about their professional experience with potential customers in their profile.



Single payout method

Starting recently, freelancers can only opt for a single method of receiving payouts. This change will help us always be sure where to send the money. If you previously had multiple payout options selected, now you have only one priority method left.

Better compatibility with Trados

You can now choose between two modes when exporting translation memories in the Trados format depending on your preferred compatibility — “Trados 2007” or “Trados 2009 or newer”. This update has solved the compatibility issues experienced when uploading TM files that were previously downloaded from Smartcat to various versions of Trados.

Project name in the page title

Jumping to a project page from the address bar in most popular browsers has become easier after we’ve started adding the project name to the page title. Just start typing the project name in the address bar and the browser will show you the URL of the respective page in Smartcat as browsers keep the history of the pages you visit.


Also, navigating dozens of open tabs will be easier after this update.

Custom special characters

You can now add up to 40 entries to the list of special characters of your choice by copying and pasting them. Learn more about using special characters in Smartcat in our Help Center.

Here’s a great website for searching for special characters.

Hiding CDATA sections when uploading XML files

You can now hide the CDATA syntax to make translating more convenient for you by ticking the “Protect HTML tags in CDATA sections” checkbox when uploading any XML file, including Android XML, DITA XML or Help+Manual XML.
