Modify the source while a job is out for translation - On Premises 6.4

Author-it Knowledge Center

This process describes the behaviour of the flag for re-translation (when you modify an object that has a locale variant that is already out for translation).

  1. A user edits the primary object in the source language. A locale variant of that object is out for translation (included in a translation job).
  2. The flag for re-translation appears on the locale variants of that primary object.
  3. When you import the translation job the flag is not removed (because the translation was based on a previous version of the primary object). The locale variant content is updated, the release state changes to the import state.
  4. A user creates a new translation job for a book that contains that primary object for that language.
  5. The flagged locale variant will be included in the translation job.
  6. As soon as the new translation job is 'Created', the flag for re-translation is removed from the locale variant. The variant shows the full color flag again. From the release state, you can see that the object is sent for translation, and has content that is not yet up-to-date.
