Any tips? At the moment, I'm just sending sdlxliff bilingual file + TM. Works well, but the reviewing stage doesn't seem to show in the "Task History" section. I do get the "translation approved" message in the File View after I complete the review, but there is no trace of this reviewing stage in TH. It's important for me to show to the client that the file has been reviewed. Is it supposed to be like this? Is this normal? Or am I doing something wrong? Can't find any info anywhere... Thanks f... See more

Same procedure for EN 15038 Jul 18, 2011

As this standard needs the documentation of the review status and Studio 2009 does not support track changes, I created another (quite simple) system.
In the project folder I create an additional folder, called "before revision". Then I copy the translated SDLXLIFF file there. Afterwards you have simply two SDLXLIFF files and can show both the onbe before and after revision.
This does not cost much time.

Jerzy, are you telling me that it's impossible to show the review stage in Studio 2009 Freelance? I can definitely follow your instructions, if necessary, but it seems strange to me that such a feature is not present?

You can see the review stage Jul 18, 2011

That means Studio will show you, if the file has been translated, reviewed or signed off.
But beside the status you have no proof the action has really been taken.
Track changes will be introduced in Studio 2011, so until then the method I described is the only one accepted for proof according to EN 15038. I however cannot tell what is acceptable for your customer.

in my case, when a client sends a package, and I finalize it with sign-off, there is no trace of the reviewing stage in Task History... I get Analyze Files, Verify Files, Update Mani Translation Memories, Generate Target Translation and Translate...

Review and sign-off are not batch tasks Jul 18, 2011

And AFAIR the task history refers to batch tasks,
