OpenEdge Development: Visual Translator
Tracking Your Work : Monitoring the glossary
 
Monitoring the glossary
The Modified by Translator and Type columns in the Glossaries tab folder help you keep track of changes you make to the default glossary.
While you translate, if you enter a translation instead of selecting a suggestion from the glossary, the Visual Translator adds your translation to the default glossary but marks it with a C (for custom) in the Type column of the Glossaries tab folder. For example, in Table 4–1, “Cerrar” is entered by the translator.
If you select a default glossary suggestion for a translation and edit it (for example, you change a word), the Visual Translator indicates that you changed the glossary suggestion by entering Yes in the Modified by Translator column of the Glossaries tab folder. For example, in Table 4–1, “Mapa de bits” is changed by the translator.
