  1. Can't confirm my translation

    Hi everyone! I'm writing you as I've been having this problem with SmartCAT since yesterday. When I try to confirm the translation, I get this error message and I can't confirm it. I've tried restarting the computer, browser, SmartCAT etc. but nothing helped. It's been like this for more than 24 hours and I've asked support about it, but no reply yet. This has never happened before and it might be caused by the major update during the last weekend... Has anyone experienced this? How did you fix it? I really appreciate your help. Thank you, Kaori
  2. One email, multiple accounts?

    I am facing a problem that significantly affects my use of the platform. When I log in with my email I am presented with two options (USA and Europe). If I change my profile (personal details, services), changes are reflected in both domains (us.smartcat.ai and smartcat.ai) as expected. However, for each option, I see different projects and different chat messages. The job offers are thus different, and worse, I do not receive email notifications of offers received through the Europa option. How to solve this? Would it be possible to unify these accounts through a unique identifier, since apparently the system does not use my email address for this? Note: I have an ongoing project that appears only in the USA account, so I can't risk trying to remove the accounts to create a new one.
  3. User Script for Better QA Usability

    Hello everyone. I've been using Smartcat for a year already and got to know some of its pros and contras. One of the features I'm not quite happy about is QA: the default interface is hard to use during the whole day when you are working with dozens and hundreds of pages. While the interface cannot be customized via settings, it can be improved by using user scripts. Before: After (image scaled, text size is the same as in the image above): The script uses the current browser window size to change the QA window size dynamically. I'm not a programmer so the changes are limited to increasing the window size and dimming/hiding some unnecessary text strings. How to: 1. Install TamperMonkey extension to your browser. From Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/tampermonkey/dhdgffkkebhmkfjojejmpbldmpobfkfo For Firefox and other supported browsers: https://tampermonkey.net/ 2. After installation, there will be the extension icon on the browser’s toolbar: 3. Left-click the extension button –> Create a new script… Delete all text in the script editor window; copy the required script text (I've added it below) and paste it in the script editor window, then save it (click the floppy disk icon). 4. Reload the browser tab where you are viewing your projects. If everything was done correctly, on the extension icon there will be a red square with the number of scripts running on the current page (1 by default): The script: // ==UserScript== // @name Enlarge QA window in SmartCAT // @namespace http://tampermonkey.net/ // @version 0.2 // @description Larger QA window in SmartCAT project error search, autoenlarge error frame // @author Alexey Kushnirov // @match https://smartcat.ai/Workspac* // @match https://smartcat.ai/workspac* // @match https://smartcat.ai/Project* // @match https://smartcat.ai/project* // @grant none // ==/UserScript== (function() { 'use strict'; function addGlobalStyle(css) { var head, style; head = document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0]; if (!head) { return; } style = document.createElement('style'); style.type = 'text/css'; style.innerHTML = css; head.appendChild(style); } addGlobalStyle('.x-segment-tinymce-editor{min-height:50px}'); addGlobalStyle('.l-qa-check-report-scroll { overflow-y: scroll; max-height: 70vh; width: 100%;}'); addGlobalStyle('.l-qa-check-report-popup {width: 90%;}'); addGlobalStyle('.l-qa-check-segment-text-header {height:1px; COLOR: #EFEFEF}'); addGlobalStyle('.l-qa-check-documentTitle-column {COLOR: #EFEFEF}'); })(); Known issues: If you open the QA window and Smartcat shows a notification at the same time, the QA window may look distorted. Just close it by pressing Escape, close the notification and open QA again.

  20. Dual-monitor with smartCAT

    Have you tried using dual-monitor with smartCAT? If not, I highly recommend you try it. 𝗪𝗵𝘆 𝗱𝘂𝗮𝗹-𝗺𝗼𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗼𝗿? The ugly truth is - The editor windows feel condensed sometimes. - Too many distractions from taskbar button, desktop notifications and even from the many tabs currently opened on your current browser window. - There ain't enough space to view source document(s) and/or reference(s) when translating. Alt+tab constantly is disruptive to workflow. Switching between tabs in your browser only adds to this disruption. 𝗛𝗼𝘄? - Get a second monitor and just plug it in a monitor port on your laptop (vga,hdmi) (for PC users you must have 2 video cards installed before you can do this). - Using Chrome (or any browser that support multi-task and multi-tab). - Sign-in to smartCAT and open the document you want to translate. It would open in a new tab. - Click and drag the editor tab out of Chrome's tab bar. Now the editor tab is in its own window. You can drag it to the other monitor. - Press F11 to make it goes fullscreen. Now you have one whole screen for translating only. Profit! - The other screen can be used for research and viewing source document. Attached is a screenshot of my dual monitor setup. For best result, two monitors should have the same resolution. Black part on my screenshot is because it has lower resolution (1366 x 768) than my main monitor (1920 x 1080).
