[STUDIO 2011] Track Changes & Auto-Propagate

When Auto-Propagate is active, Track Changes has a strange behaviour:

While reviewing a translation (Review Mode), and you confirm a segment (status changes to Approved), following segments in the file, that have idenitcal content, will immediately show tracked changes, where the original translation (correct and approved) is striked through, and the identical text appears behind (underlined, as a "correction"). This is - of course - nonsense.

The only workaround I can see for the time being is to deactivate Auto-propagation, which is user-unfriendly, because I need to activate/deactivate Auto-propagation now with every change to another job. Many times, I work on jobs in parallel (translation, review,...).

Is this behaviour really intended?

Hi Horst,

This was picked up at the end of the Beta by another user and we scheduled this work for SP1. I'm pretty sure this will be changed so that “confirm segment after auto-propagating an exact match” setting will really mean “confirm segment, accepting any track changes, after auto-propagating an exact match” when in review mode with tracked changes turned on.

Regards

Paul

Studio creates "changes", where there are no changes. Nov 4, 2011

Thanks, Paul.
Actually, I was not talking about propagation of tracked changes.

What I meant was approving a segment with no changes at all (i.e. the translator did a perfect job, and I don't need to change anything - just confirm/approve the segment as it is).

If the same segment is repeated in the text, Studio will nevertheless introduce a "correction" of the correct text, replacing "correct text" with "correct text", which does not make any sense.

Example:

[seg#5] = This is correct text.
.
.
.
[seg#25] = This is correct text.

If I approve seg#5, then seg#25 will look like:

[seg#25] = This is correct text.This is correct text.
(I cannot "strikethrough" the red one in this Proz interface)

There are no tracked changes to accept, as nothing had be changed. But there should also be no change introduced by Studio, right?

Hi Horst,

I know what you mean and this is exactly what I am referring to. We are changing this so that you won't even see the changes take place, they will automatically be accepted. The act of AP'ing the segment for review is reconfirming the segment by AP'ing it. The status changes to reviewed and the segment shows the changes by replacing the text. So the segment has been changed, even though the text remains the same.

Clearly we don't want this to reflect the change in this way and the work in SP1 will prevent it.

This part of your comments referes to AP'ing.


If the same segment is repeated in the text, Studio will nevertheless introduce a "correction" of the correct text, replacing "correct text" with "correct text", which does not make any sense.


Regards

Paul

"The status changes to reviewed and the segment shows the changes by replacing the text. So the segment has been changed, even though the text remains the same."

To know how a function works means to understand the outcome. Thanks for explaining - I suspected something like that, but now I know it...

Using SP1 and the problem is still there ? Feb 22, 2012

Hi Paul,

I am using SP1 and this "strange behaviour" mentioned by Horst is still there - what is the solution for this issue? To de-activate AP?

regards,
Marcel
