  1. I’m afraid it is. What’s left in archived project is: source & confirmed target documents, and translation memories (can be retrieved via Resources menu). So whatever wasn’t confirmed is lost. And it is generally the best practice to always confirm your work, for the above and many other reasons.
  2. No one mentioned this, but: you can keep them on Smartcat Of course, this would still be Word/PDF, but it would be easily accessible for anyone trying to hire you on the platform. And to keep the source text/target text structure, you could first download those translations as “Bilingual” from the Smartcat workspace. HTH!
  3. Well, you didn’t think it would be that easy, did you? Congrats, Igor!
  4. Hey guys, there are no plans for further ST selections, at least not at the moment. We’re thinking of other ways to achieve reliable translator ranking, and any peer-based assessment will need to be embedded in the more general approaches we come up with.
  5. By the way, there was an interesting question posted after the webinar was already over: Any tips, @Jennifer ODonnell?
  6. Thanks, Jennifer, it was a great webinar, and I love the resources listed!
  7. Please try to connect to https://www.deepl.com/translator

    Ah, ok, I see. Yes, as I said, we’re working on implementing an API connection to DeepL, so stay tuned
  8. Great speech, Igor! Before I go looking for an Apple Watch (and a billboard), here’s a nifty little trophy for you to brag about
  9. Please try to connect to https://www.deepl.com/translator

    Thanks for the suggestions, @Melchor Aurelio Aguirre Salas — we’ll write them down! For future posts, please note that the language of this forum is English
  10. Ladies and Gentlemen, based on a public vote, the prize for the Best Video in the “How Smartcat Changed My Life in 2017” category goes to... @Igor “The Wanderer” Kozlov!!! Here’s the winner’s video, in case you missed it: Igor, congratulations! We can’t wait to hear your Oscar speech! (Don’t forgot to mention which of the prizes you would like to receive ) To @Serena Zilio, @Joshua Velasquez, @Hussain Sadeqi — thank you guys, your videos were really awesome, each in its own way. We decided to give the runner-up prize of $50 to each of you — check your Smartcat balances soon for an update
  11. I believe most hostings give away a year of SSL protection for free. And yes, for some weird reason “greenlocked” websites look classier, even though I don’t think it’s that necessary for websites that don’t involve user input.
  12. Yeah, sometimes I do feel that vocalists and guitarists get more credits than they deserve!
  13. By the way, it’s interesting that — despite all the hilarity — most of these badly translated phrases are perfectly understandable. Take “All your base are belong to us”. Who can not get it, right? Which cannot be said, by the way, of many perfectly grammatical but overly complicated sentences such like this one. I think it’s a worthwhile topic for linguists to investigate.
  14. Okay, guys, the submissions are now officially closed, and the voting open. Good luck!
  15. Okay guys, all the clips for our video contest have been posted, so we’re on to the voting stage now! The detailed voting rules are below in this post, but first let’s take a look at the videos. Here are our contestants, in the order of submissions: @Joshua Velasquez tells us how Smartcat has helped him raise his profile as a translator and find new clients: @Hussain Sadeqi shares his story of struggle, refuge, and perseverance, where Smartcat helps him stay afloat in these times of need: @Serena Zilio gives a quirky account of Smartcat’s benefits, including how much beer one can save from not paying license fees Finally, @Igor Kozlov talks about Smartcat’s fuelling his globetrotting lifestyle: Although there’s just four contestants, I thoroughly enjoy the fact that they highlighted Smartcat’s strengths from totally different angles: opening you to new clients, helping in need, saving your money, and working from anywhere in the world. So, whose message appeals the most to you? Vote in the poll above, and let the strongest win! Now, to some rules: You can vote until Sunday, Jan 28, 11:59 pm UTC, after which the voting will be automatically closed. You need a Smartcat community account to vote (which is not the same as our Smartcat account). If you don’t have one, sign up here. You can vote for one contestant only. You cannot change your vote after casting it. Your vote is anonymous to other community members except for forum admins. You are welcome to invite other people to vote in this post. However, and we’re taking your word for this, these should be people related to the translation industry: your colleagues, customers, vendors, and so on. That’s it! Can’t wait to find out the winner, and good luck to all the contestants! I’m locking this topic to avoid discussions that may affect voting results being too close to the voting itself. But you are free to discuss the videos in the original thread. So, Let the voting begin!
