Communication challenges
in the localization industry

Using a combination of these tools can negatively affect efficiency, security, confidentiality, business continuity, and your ability to have oversight.

What are customizations and what does the XTRF customization department do?

As you probably know, XTRF is a powerful tool for agile project management, built specifically for the translation industry. It can automate many steps in the translation workflow, meaningless repetitive tasks for project managers. However, there are situations where XTRF’s out of the box solution alone does not fully cover a company’s workflow. That’s when the Customization Department steps in. Do you need to create reports on your in-house translators, to be automatically sent to the server? No problem! Do you want your documents to have a beautiful rainbow background and a unicorn-shaped watermark? Really?! Well, OK then. We can do it! Or maybe you need integration between XTRF and Google Sheets? We can help with that too. The benefit of translation tools like XTRF is that they are truly flexible. This makes the decision of building or buying software less overwhelming since you don’t need to minutely study the differences between off the shelf products. Instead, we can work with you to develop the customization options you need. So, what type of customizations can be created within XTRF? What can be personalized? Customization Team Leader Mateusz Szymański details some of the options. Macros Used for ‘extending’ the capabilities of XTRF.
