Project creation

A project forms the basis for all translations and any further work steps in Across. The project setup comprises steps such as the selection of the documents to be translated, the specification of the target languages of the translation, and the determination of the underlying workflow.

The Project Wizard assists you in creating a new project in Across. You can supplement the Dashboard with a dashlet for opening the Project Wizard.

The projects in Across are managed in the Projects module, which can be accessed via Projects > Projects in the module bar to the left of the screen. Additionally, there are further modules for the project management with Across, e.g. the Tasks module for assigning tasks to Across users or the Quality Management module.

While you are setting up a project, you can check in documents to be translated in Across. Use the Alignment Wizard to incorporate existing translation units in crossTank, the Across translation memory.
