Master Data Report (MDR)
Contains the master data of a project, including the documents and tasks that belong to it.
The project-related part of the MDR shows an overview of the project, the relation, the individuals involved, scheduled due dates, and the statistics that are needed for calculating prices for the overall project.
WAN Transfer Report (WTR)
Provides all necessary information on crossWAN tasks in a well-structured report.
Apart from information such as the progress and the word count of the task, the report also shows the number of transmitted crossTank and crossTerm entries.
The entries are categorized like in the Grid Transfer Report.
Grid Transfer Report (GTR)
Contains all relevant information on crossGrid projects delegated to a Trusted Server. Apart from information such as the progress and the word count of the delegated task(s), the report also shows the number of transmitted crossTank and crossTerm entries.
- The entries are categorized as follows:
- Total: Total number of transmitted entries
- Created: Newly created entries
- Updated: Entries whose content, properties, or attributes have been edited, but that had already existed
- Not imported: Entries that were not imported because they had already existed and have not been changed
Edit Distance Report (EDR)
Requires a separate license.
If you exchange data via crossGrid or crossWAN, the option Exchange change history information must be enabled. Otherwise, no information will be available concerning the change history of paragraphs, and the edit distance cannot be calculated.
Contains information on the edit distance of texts across the various workflow steps. For this, changes that take place when switching from one paragraph state to the next are compared, e.g. from Translated to Corrected. Thus, you can see exactly which sentences have been edited (or post-edited in the case of machine translations), and to what extent.
The edit distance indicates the actions required to get from the original version of the translation to the final version, converted into percent.
The document-wide edit distance includes all paragraphs, including those whose original translation has not been modified. For these paragraphs, the edit distance is 0 percent.
Calculation of the Edit Distance in Across
The edit distance in percent is calculated with the help of the following formula:
(100 x Levenshtein distance) / (original text length)
The Levenshtein distance is a fixed metric. More information is available e.g. in the Wikipedia under Levenshtein distance.
The original text length is the number of characters of the original translation including spaces, symbols, and elements.
The maximum value is 100 percent.
100 percent are reached as soon as the number of edited characters reaches or exceeds the number of characters of the original translation.
This is a test sentence.
This is my test sentence.
Here, the Levenshtein distance has a value of 2. The original text contains 25 characters.
The edit distance in Across thus amounts to 8 percent.
