External Editing of Documents with crossWeb

crossWeb can also be used to perform External document editing tasks. These tasks require the editing of documents outside Across, such as the post-processing of translations (to change the formatting, content, etc.) or translations of document formats not supported natively.

If you have been assigned a task that has to be edited externally, after you have confirmed and opened the task, a dialog box opens that will help you to edit the task.


The dialog window offers the following functions:

Download source document
To download the document to be processed.
Save externally edited document
To download the externally edited document (possible only after the externally updated document has been uploaded to the Across Server).
Download attachments
To download attachments or reference documents provided to you by the project manager for working on the task.
Upload externally edited document
To transfer the externally edited document to the Across Server (the size of the documents that can be uploaded is limited to 50 MB per document).
Check out most recent target document edited in Across
To check out the respective document from Across.
The document is converted back to its original format and can then be edited outside Across.

You can also set the progress of the task manually and if needed, use a checkbox to set the progress to finished.
