Does anybody know if Fluency Flow can handle several translators working simultaneously on the same document?

Does anybody know what Fluency is?
Two years ago I translated Fluency TS 2013 manual into Russian with all interface screenshots and graphics and sent it to their manager for free (the manager who contacted me just one day before I sent the manual, so I sent it to a real existing person in WesternStandard). Nobody even replied. Don't think they realy need their product. Neither for themselves, nor for their clients.

Hi Alejandro,

Fluency Flow is our project management software, which allows you to create projects, then assign their documents out to vendors for translation, proofreading, etc. It provides you with statistical information on a variety of different things, including project and document word counts, vendor and client pricing, profit margin, and much more.

While you can only assign one translator at a time to any given document in Fluency Flow, Fluency Now actually offers a built-in collaboration tool which allows multiple translators to work on the same document at the same time. This allows you to assign one large document to multiple translators, who can then work on it together while seeing the other translators' translations on their own screen in real-time.

To work in the collaboration mode, each translator would need an active copy of Fluency, then follow these steps:

- Click on the Collaboration tab in Fluency Now, then enter the same chat room as their colleagues, either from the drop-down list or by typing in a custom room name (Note: Rooms are case sensitive, so each translator would need to enter the room name exactly the same)

- Once in a chat room, the PM or main translator would check the Enable Collaboration box, then select the option to become Master Translator of that document.

- Next, all other translators would check the Enable Collaboration box, then select the option to collaborate and request the Master Translator's document.

- After a moment, the document will appear on each translator's screen, at which time they would be able to decide how to split the document up, and each would begin working on their section.

- Once the translation is complete, the Master Translator will be responsible for saving the progress (File > Save Translation Progress), or saving the document out to its original format if it's complete (File > Save As).

If you have any additional questions, or if you would like to speak with one of our trainers about how our software could help your business, please let us know.
