Beta Test: Cloud-based HM Translation with Smartcat


Smartcat is a cloud-based translation ecosystem that is already widely used, supporting both advanced machine translation and translation by traditional human translators, or a combination of the two. Recently, customers have started asking the staff at Smartcat whether the system could process Help+Manual XML topic files. They looked into it, contacted us for the specifications and the result is now a working beta version that is ready for testing.

Call for beta testers

If you are looking for alternative ways to translate your Help+Manual documents you are invited to participate in the free beta test of the new Smartcat system. Pavel Doronin and his team would really appreciate your feedback and suggestions for possible improvements.

How to participate

You just need to register an account at Smartcat, or use your existing one if you already have one. Then send a message to the Smartcat support team at support@smartcat.ai with a request that you want to enable Help+Manual support in your account.

About H+M support in Smartcat

Currently you can import individual/multiple XML files (both topic files and TOC files), not entire projects. You can then translate them yourself, assign them to a translator or apply machine translation. Both H+M’s traditional XML and the new TidyXML introduced with version 7.3 are already fully supported.

Full project import may be added in a future update. Any and all other suggestions you may have are very welcome, of course.
