Make a Wish: Which New Features Would You Like to See in the Next Across Version?

Press Report

At our user conference and LSP Day, we asked all participants for their opinion: Which features should by all means be implemented in the next Across version? A list of 14 features was presented for prioritization.

Deviating Ratings

As the requirements of industrial enterprises are often different from those of language service providers, we deliberately conducted the feature voting separately for the two user groups. As expected, major deviations are evident in some areas. For example, the visualization of links in crossTerm was considered the top priority by industrial enterprises but the lowest priority by language service providers. Industrial enterprises also considered the possibility of editing the source text (e.g. to correct typos) to be desirable. By contrast, language service providers considered the opening of multiple tasks and the partitioning in crossGrid to be much more important than the industrial enterprises did.

Similar Ratings

However, some areas also overlapped. For example, both target groups regarded the highlighting of errors and project settings templates as very important features. The length check as a quality criterion and the editing in the right column were of medium importance to both groups. The subjects considered the visual highlighting of comments in the project management modules, user-defined keyboard shortcuts, and the creation of subfolders in projects to be less important.

What Comes Next?

We will carefully check and evaluate the results of the feature voting in order to accommodate as many requirements as possible of all user groups. As soon as the roadmap for the next major release in 2017 is ready, we will of course tell you which features will be implemented in the next Across version.
