ApSIC Xbench features Quality Assurance (QA) functions to perform advanced checks on the files defined as ongoing translation. The QA functions try to find segments with the following potential problems:
The Quality Assurance functions are carried out with the QA tab in the main window. The QA tab can perform the following functions:
Please remember that the ApSIC Xbench license does not permit removal of the credits on the right-hand side at the beginning of the exported QA report. We have tried to make this credit information non-intrusive and its aim is to avoid tell-a-friend or other more intrusive ways of promoting use of the product among peers.
Results are shown in the body window of the QA tab. For some file formats, you can open directly from ApSIC Xbench the file at the segment shown to correct it by selecting Tools->Edit Segment or by pressing Ctrl+E.
You can limit the scope of the strings considered by the QA process by checking the Only New Segments, Only 100% Matches, or Exclude ICE Segments check boxes.
You can also make the consistency check mode case-sensitive by checking the Case-sensitive Inconsistencies check box.
You can ignore the tag content within the segments for the QA pass by choosing Ignore Tags. This will allow you to find inconsistencies that have the same source or target text except for inline tags.
This window allows you to mark an issue by right-clicking on it and choosing Mark/Unmark Issue. You can then optionally show or hide marked issues with the Show Marked or Hide Marked radio buttons under Filter Issues in order to limit the number of issues displayed. For example, to quickly ignore and hide false alarms from the list of results, one good set-up is to choose Hide Marked and then mark issues as you process the list.
The Export QA Results command only exports displayed issues (it does not export hidden issues).
