Step 3: Linguistic Review

This guide will walk you through the steps to accept and work with a Translation task in Language Cloud and Studio

1. Click ”Inbox”

Go to the ”Inbox” in Language Cloud.

Click 'Inbox'

2. Click ”New”

The Inbox has three different tabs for tasks that are New, Active and Completed. Click on the ”New” tab to see new incoming tasks.

Click 'New'

3. Accept the Linguistic Review task

Select the check box next to the task name and then click on the ’Accept’ button to start the Linguistic Review task

4. Choose ’Open in Studio’

The task is now moved to the Active tab in the Inbox. Now you can decide how you want to review the file.
Once again, select the check box next to the task name and then either choose to use the Online Editor or click ’Open in Studio’ to work in your regular desktop Studio program.

5. Login in Studio using the same login credentials as online for Language Cloud

In Studio, please check that you are logged in correctly using the same email and password as are using online in Language Cloud.
In the top right hand corner you should see our company name as shown in this image.

6. Check that you are correctly logged in

Clicking on ’Sign in’ in the top right hand corner of Studio opens up the login screen. You need to be logged in to our Language Cloud server, as shown here, to work with the cloud translations.

7. Refresh to view your cloud projects

Click on the Projects tab in Studio. Your linguistic review task should be listed here now. If you don’t see your linguistic review task in the projects list use the Refresh button in the cloud ribbon at the top of Studio.
Double click on the project name to open the file view as you would with any regular project.

8. Save your work

You save your ongoing work using the regular Studio Save Button. Did it work? If you login to Language Cloud and choose to open the file in the Online Editor you should see your edits and comments saved here.
Track changes should always be turned on and are set by default to be visible.

9. Complete Task

When the linguistic review is all finished please go to the Files tab and in the top cloud ribbon use the ’Complete’ task button to hand in the text. The ’Complete’ button is a small check box with a green tick mark.

10. Select ’Approve’ in the Studio dialogue box

In the dialogue box that appears after clicking ’Complete’ please select ’Approve’ and then press OK.
The translator will now take a look at your edits and either approve or decline these. You have now successfully completed the review assignment.
