Paragraph States

Each paragraph in Across has an editing state. This means that status information is stored for every paragraph that you translate. For example, the editing states Untouched, Touched, and Translated are available for translations.

The editing states assist in systematically processing the document. For example, this concept prevents a paragraph from being overlooked during the translation. The editing state of each paragraph is displayed in the form of icons in the middle of the Context View.

cDesk_context-view_bearbeitungszustand

When changing to the next paragraph after entering text, the edited paragraph will automatically be set to the editing state Touched. Under Tools > User Settings > crossDesk > Target Editor, you can also change the configuration in such a way that the edited paragraph is automatically set to Translated (final paragraph state). In this way, you do not need to manually set the paragraph to Translated.

Only paragraphs that have been set to the editing state Translated are stored in crossTank. This ensures that only fully translated paragraphs are stored in crossTank.
