What's New: April 2022

Release of April 28, 2022

NEW FEATURES AND ENHANCEMENTS

  • The Smartcat Editor is now able to correctly process subtitles with overlapping timestamps. Such subtitles are merged into one segment that includes multiple subtitles separated by the line break symbol.

  • Opening an SRT file for editing now automatically opens the Source Preview panel.

RESOLVED ISSUES

  • When translating subtitles, clicking on a subtitle inside a segment that includes multiple subtitles separated by the line break symbol would always highlight the first subtitle in the preview. This issue is now resolved.

  • Resolved an issue where the video file started playing not from the selected subtitle, but from the beginning of the segment or from the last stop. 
  • Fixed an issue that randomly prevented the line breaks to be correctly processed when switching from the Source to the Target preview tab.
  • The file reference name and subtitles on the video were not updated when changing the document in the new version of the Editor.
  • The User preferences dialog in the Editor now has a fixed minimum height. This will ensure its correct scalability at any resize.
  • The Concordance search panel has been adjusted for small panel sizes.

NEW FEATURES AND ENHANCEMENTS

  • When uploading XLIFF files, some applications can automatically insert the current source value into the target field. This created issues with the file translation workflow, as the existing translation text was imported by default and committed to the Translation Memory.
    To resolve this problem, we have provided another option in the Insert translation from file parameter for XLIFF files in addition to All targets and Do not import. The new option is called When target is different from source. It is selected by default and instructs Smartcat to ignore translations in segments where the target is identical with the source.

  • The Smartcat editor has been enhanced by adding the empty status for the CAT Info panel in case a unit does not exist in the Translation Memory.

RESOLVED ISSUES

  • The automatic translation module has been adjusted to prevent the consumption of Smartwords in locked segments.

Release of April 19, 2022

NEW FEATURES AND ENHANCEMENTS

  • To simplify and streamline a subtitles translation, the project manager can now upload a video file directly from the subtitle preview pane. This not only allow them to upload a reference file, but also associate it with the subtitle file.

RESOLVED ISSUES

  • Fixed an issue where the resulting file from the previous task showed the source file instead of the uploaded file.
