The Revision Interface

The revision interface offers the same features and functionalities as the Translation Workspace, plus additional functionalities to allow revisers to revise jobs translated in eLUNa within the interface. Below we set out the basic steps to complete and revise a translation in eLUNa.

1. Setting your document as "ready for revision"

If you are a Translator whose work is subject to revision, once you complete the translation of your document, set it as "Ready for revision". Setting a document as ready for revision will lock the document for translation: you can no longer make any changes to it. The file becomes accessible to the Reviser.

To set a document as Ready for revision:

1. On the main toolbar, click the “Document information” icon.

2. Select “Ready for revision”.

3. Confirm by clicking “Yes” on the warning pop-up.

2. Opening a document for revision

After setting the document as ready for revision, the Translate link in the eLUNa Intray will turn to Revise. This means the job is ready to be revised. If you are a Reviser, click on the Revise link to open the document for revision.

3. Unique features of the Revision Interface

3.1. Background colour of confirmed segments

Confirmed segments in the revision interface are displayed on a darker blue sky background.

3.2. Track changes under discovery results (Show more)

In the Revision Interface, two layers of track changes are displayed under discovery results: The first layer compares the final translated segment confirmed by the translator to the original translation taken from a match or from machine translation. The second layer shows changes made by the reviser to the translator's final confirmed segment.

3.3. Comment formatting

The comments added by the reviser are shown in orange, to distinguish them from the translator´s comments, which are displayed in yellow. This applies to both the user interface and the exported file.


The orange color coding is also visible in the exported file to help you separate comments easily:

3.4. Export the document with track changes

The Revision interface includes an additional export function that allows revisers to export the document with track changes. Go to Export and click on Docx with revision. The file downloaded will show all the changes made by the reviser in track changes.

3.5 Return document to translator for further work

If, after starting the revision, you decide the document should be sent back to the translator, for example, because the edited text is now available and there are new corrections, go to Document information and click on Return to translator. The revisions made so far will remain and the translator will regain access to the document.
