Launching and Shutting Down

ApSIC Xbench is an application that, once launched, must be explicitly shut down when it is no longer needed. In a normal scenario, you will load your reference project to search for terminology while you are translating and leave it in the background until you finish your translation work.

Closing the ApSIC Xbench window does not remove the program from the memory because it is waiting for your next query with the Ctrl+Alt+Insert key sequence.

Launching ApSIC Xbench

To launch ApSIC Xbench, follow one of these procedures:

  • Choose Start->Programs->ApSIC Tools->Xbench on the Windows task bar.
  • Double-click on the icon of a previously defined ApSIC Xbench project (.xbp extension).
  • With Windows Explorer, select a file or folder with files supported by ApSIC Xbench, right-click and choose Run QA in Xbench.

Xbench can also be launched from other applications, such as Trados Studio using the Xbench plugin, from Chrome using the Xbench Chrome extension, from the Xbench Connector for Memsource, etc.

Shutting Down ApSIC Xbench

In order to shut down ApSIC Xbench, you have the following options:

  • Right-click the ApSIC Xbench icon (a pink gem) located in the system tray and click Shut Down Xbench.
  • On the Project menu, click Shut Down Xbench.
