Across Dashboard
The Ac r o ss D a shbo a r d is a new module that serves as the start page of Across and replaces the
previous What Do You Want to Do? module. The Dashboard consists of "dashlets". These are boxes
or tiles that feature certain configurable functions and can be freely arranged and grouped in the
Dashboard.
Dashlets can display translation and PM-specific figures or contain links to basic Across functions,
modules, and webpages.
Information on the new Across Dashboard is available in this YouTube video.
Contents of the Dashboard
The Dashboard can provide the accustomed functions of the previous What Do You Want to Do?
module, i.e. links to basic Across functions and modules. However, the Dashboard can also be
expanded in various ways. For this purpose, new dashlets can be selected from a variety of
predefined standard dashlets. Moreover, new dashlets can also be individually configured.
Finally, there is a predefined RSS dashlet featuring the latest news about Across.
The initial stocking of the Dashboard with dashlets takes place on the basis of the affiliation of the
particular Across user with the respective Across user groups. For example, a translator is initially
provided with different dashlets than a project manager.
Adding New Dashlets
The context menu of the Dashboard features an item for adding new dashlets to the Dashboard (and
e.g. for customizing, updating, or deleting existing dashlets).

The first step when creating a new dashlet is the definition of the dashlet type. The following types are
available for selection:
• Query dashlet: Dashlet that shows the result of a query of the Project Management Cockpit (see
page 10). For example, this might be the number of currently assigned tasks, the date of the next
task completion, or the word count of all active tasks.
•
•
When a query dashlet is clicked, the PM Cockpit is automatically opened with the respective
query.
Link dashlet: Dashlet that can be linked to an external resource. This external resource may be a
webpage, a file on a local computer, or a script or program that is to be opened or executed.
Shortcut dashlet: Dashlet for e.g. executing basic Across functions or for opening Across modules.

New My Tasks Module
The M y T as k s module has been fully revised. The module still displays all assigned tasks of the
respective user, but has become much clearer and more straightforward. Moreover, the module now
also enables customization of the presented contents.

Adapting My Tasks Module
The new M y T as k s module can be adapted to individual needs in a flexible and versatile manner.
For example, columns can be shown and hidden flexibly. In a dialog window, the desired columns can
be added or removed:
Moreover, it is also possible to change the position and width of the displayed columns and to adjust
the sorting within the columns.
Extensive Filter Options
Using the icon in the column headers of the module, the content of the columns can be filtered:
Additionally, the contents of the module can be filtered in a granular way by means of a filter editor.
With the help of operators and conditions, it is even possible to define complex filters.

Across Project Management Cockpit
The Ac r o ss P roj e ct M an ag em ent Co c kpit is a new module that provides diverse options for
querying translation and PM-relevant indicators. The PM Cockpit comes with a set of predefined
standard queries. Moreover, custom queries can be created. Additionally, basic PM functions can be
executed directly from within the PM Cockpit.
Information on the new Project Management Cockpit is available in this YouTube video.
The PM Cockpit can be accessed via > > P ro je ct s > > Coc kp it in the Across module bar on the left
of the screen.
The PM Cockpit is based on a new backend technology that ensures better performance and higher
stability along with lower use of resources.
Integrated PM Functions
Central PM functions can be executed directly from within the Cockpit. For example, projects can be
checked out, and source documents or target languages can be added to projects.
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015
10
Tasks displayed within queries can be opened in crossDesk with a double-click.
Interaction of the PM Cockpit with Other Across Modules
The PM Cockpit interacts with other Across modules in various ways. For example, the results of
queries can be displayed directly in the Ac r o s s D as hboa rd (see page 6). From within the Across
Dashboard, a query can be started in the PM Cockpit by clicking the respective query dashlet. After
selecting a task in the PM Cockpit, the task can be opened directly with the corresponding button in
the T a sk s module.
Creating New Queries
In addition to the predefined standard queries, custom queries can be created. The complexity of the
queries is virtually unlimited.
Within the scope of the creation of a new query, the query can be defined as public query. Thus, the
query will be available throughout the system to all users who have access to the PM Cockpit. In
contrast, non-public queries are only available to the respective users.
Copying Query Results to Excel
For further use outside Across, the results of a query can be easily transferred to an Excel file. You
can copy either all rows of a query result (C o p y) or manually selected rows (Co p y s el e ct io n) to
the clipboard – the associated column headers will also be copied automatically.
To transfer the query results, open an Excel file and paste the copied table contents into the Excel file,
e.g. with Ctrl+V.

Customizing PM Cockpit
The PM Cockpit module can be adapted to individual needs in a flexible and versatile manner. For
example, the columns of a query can be shown and hidden flexibly. In a dialog window, the desired
columns can be added or removed:
Moreover, it is also possible to change the position and width of the displayed columns and to adjust
the sorting within the columns.

The queries can be arranged in tabs. This can be done both in vertical and in horizontal tabs:
Grouping and Group Indicators
The contents of the individual queries can be grouped virtually without any limitation. For example,
multi-stage grouping can easily be implemented:
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015

Indicators can be determined and displayed on the basis of the grouping:
It is also possible to sort the contents of the queries by the group indicators:
Extensive Filter Options
Using the icon in the column headers of the module, the content of the columns can be filtered:
Additionally, the contents of the PM Cockpit module can be filtered in a granular way by means of a
filter editor. With the help of operators and conditions, it is even possible to define complex filters.

Search Function
The columns of a query can be searched by means of an integrated search function:
5
Across Data Cube
The Across Data Cube is an optional add-on component for the Across Language Server that helps
you to extract valuable indicators from your translation projects.
The Across Data Cube helps you to make forecasts on the basis of facts and trends, e.g. to predict
bottlenecks and build up resources in due time based on the volume development in your target
languages.
Making use of modern business intelligence concepts, Across has developed a generic solution that
can be used for any Across database: the Data Cube.
By means of a staging database, the data reach the data warehouse. From here, a multidimensional
data cube is created at defined time intervals, e.g. once a day or once a week. This is done with the
help of standard database technology, which facilitates the analysis and visualization of the data from
within Microsoft Excel.
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015

An extensive set of values and dimensions enables activities such as the analysis of costs, volumes,
and process times and the rating of your suppliers' delivery reliability. Every analysis can be
customized to your needs by means of values, dimensions, and filters.
The data can be presented in well-arranged charts:
The Data Cube collects all data at "atom" level, i.e. as detailed as possible. This ensures that the
analyses can be expanded in any dimension if necessary. For example, you can have the costs for a
calendar year displayed by departments and document formats. If necessary, you can even define
price lists retroactively for finished projects in order to include them in the analysis.
If you wish, you can customize the Data Cube. For example, the values and dimensions can be
renamed according to your preferences and even be anonymized.
For further information on the Across Data Cube, please consult your contact partner at Across
Systems GmbH or our Professional Services team via the contact form at www.across.net/en/contact/.

New crossWeb Review Mode
The crossWeb Review Mode is a new, optimized work environment for the browser-based review of
translations. The new review mode is intended especially for Across users who use Across
infrequently, e.g. external reviewers. For this purpose, the crossDesk of crossWeb has been slimmed
down considerably and reduced to the main functions for the review of translations.
The new review mode greatly facilitates the review of translations: For example, reviewed paragraphs
can easily be marked as "reviewed" by means of checkboxes. To further reduce the complexity,
review tasks can be finished at any time, i.e. even if not all paragraphs have been explicitly marked as
"reviewed".
Moreover, keys and keyboard shortcuts can also be used for easy processing of review tasks: For
example, the keys Ar r o w Do w n and Ar r ow Up can be used to go to the next or previous
paragraph. The space bar or the enter key can be used to mark a paragraph as "reviewed".
Furthermore, the keyboard shortcuts CT RL + Sp ac e or CT RL + Ent er can be used to go to the next
paragraph that has not yet been reviewed.
Review tasks can still be processed as previously (in the standard mode). The preferred processing
mode can be selected via an option in the new "Review" section of the profile settings in crossWeb
and in the Windows client. (The new review mode is preselected.)
If you change the setting while crossDesk Web is open, close and restart it for the changed setting to
take effect.
Information on the new crossWeb Review Mode is available in this YouTube video.

Display of Search Suggestions in crossTerm
Previously, auto-completion of search queries by means of search suggestions had already been
available for the term search in crossTerm. These suggestions are supplied by the search history and
are thus based on previously entered search queries.
In Across version 6.0, the auto-completion of search queries is now also available in all other search
modes of crossTerm. Furthermore, the term search has been supplemented with a type-ahead
search.
Auto-completion of Search Queries
In version 6.0, suggestions are displayed on the basis of the search history when entering search
queries, e.g. also in the entry search and concordance search. The suggestions are displayed
chronologically and from the first character entered.
In the input field for the search queries, a chronological list of the last search queries can be displayed
with the Ar r o w Do w n key. Subsequently, the desired search suggestion can be selected with the
arrow keys, and the search can be started with the enter key.
Type-Ahead Search
The type-ahead search is based on the existing termbase. As soon as the first letter of a term that is
being searched for is entered, the search is performed in crossTerm. If terms that begin with the
entered letter are found, they will immediately be displayed as search suggestions.
In the term search, search suggestions are thus displayed on the basis of the search history and on
the basis of the termbase. The search suggestions are displayed in a separate list. A maximum of 10
suggestions are displayed at a time.
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015
18
Terms that are contained in the search history and that also exist as terms in crossTerm are only
displayed among the search suggestions of the search history (i.e. not also among the search
suggestions from the termbase).
The display of search suggestions is activated by default in the crossTerm Manager. If necessary, this
function can be deactivated with the menu item > > Vi e w > >T yp e- a h e ad s u g g e st io n s .
Configuration of the Auto-completion in crossTerm Web
In crossTerm Web, the configuration of the auto-completion takes place centrally via the Preset Tool,
the configuration tool of crossTerm Web. In the G lob al Set t ing s of the tool, the period (in ms) after
which the search suggestions are to be displayed can be determined in the new T yp e - Ah e ad
Sug ge st io n s tab. Furthermore, the maximum number of search suggestions displayed can be
defined.
Customization of the Auto-completion in crossTerm Web
The appearance of the auto-completion in crossTerm Web can be customized with the help of themes.
Thus, the list of search suggestions can be customized with respect to the color, frame, and font size
of the headings.
For further information on customizing the auto-completion in crossTerm Web, please consult your
contact at Across Systems GmbH or our Professional Services team, e.g. via a contact form at
http://www.across.net/en/contact/.

New Across SDK
The Across SDK (Software Development Kit) assists you in integrating translation and terminologyrelated Across functions in your own applications.
As of v6, the previous SDK is replaced by a Wiki-based online SDK. The Web-based approach of the
SDK ensures that you always have access to the latest information.
Apart from detailed information on the individual subject areas of the SDK, application-oriented
examples in various programming languages and videos are made available.
By means of an integrated comment function, it is possible to contact the Across developers directly
and discuss questions. Of course, you can also benefit from discussions of other SDK users or
participate in such discussions.
You can also monitor individual pages or entire areas and automatically get information about
changes by e-mail.
Currently, the Across SDK consists of five areas, whose visibility depends on your licenses:
• The "General Information" section provides information and references of a general nature, e.g.
the IDs of the document formats supported by Across. You can also learn how to use
crossTransform for seamless integration of proprietary document formats in the project creation in
Across.
• In the "crossConnect" section, you will learn how you can quickly and easily connect Across to
another system (CMS, DMS, PIM, etc.) for handling translations in Across.
• The "crossAPI SI" section features information for more complex integration scenarios, which can
be implemented with the help of the programming interface crossAPI SI (System Integration).
• The "crossTerm API" section helps you to integrate terminology information in your own
applications.
• The "Display Texts" provides extensive information and examples concerning the translation of
display texts.
The Across Wiki can be accessed at ht t ps: // sd k. a cr os s .ne t . Ask your contact at Across
Systems GmbH for your personal login details.
Information on the new Across SDK is available in this YouTube video.

Fundamental Changes in Across v6
As of v6, some fundamental Across settings have changed, some of which also affect the default
behavior of Across. This chapter provides an overview of these changes:
•
Changed default splitting of paragraphs: As of Across v6, the default splitting of paragraphs
has changed. Henceforth, sentence splitting of paragraphs will be used by default in new Across
installations and in existing installations when new document settings templates are created for the
respective document formats.
As of v6, this option is activated by default in the splitting settings of the document settings
template:
Due to the changed splitting settings, paragraphs consisting of several sentences will be split into
sentences. The individual sentences will, by default, be displayed separately in crossDesk – and
will be translated separately.
The following example demonstrates by means of a paragraph consisting of three sentences how
sentence-for-sentence splitting works:
Sentence-based splitting (v6)
Paragraph-based splitting (v5.7)
The paragraph has been split into three
sentences. Each sentence is displayed
separately in crossDesk.
All three sentences of the paragraph are
displayed in one paragraph in crossDesk.
The change of the default splitting settings applies both to new Across installations and to existing
installations when new document settings templates are created for the respective document
formats. Only documents in the display text format DTXML are excluded from this change.
You can configure the setting for the splitting of paragraphs by clicking S pl it t in g s et t ing s
under > >T oo ls > > S yst em Set t ing s .. . > > Do c u me n t S et t i ng s > >d e si r ed
docu m ent s et t i ng s t e mpl at e.
Further information on the splitting is available in chapter 2.2.4 of the user manual "Across at a
Glance".
•
Changed default behavior in the case of empty target paragraphs: As of Across v6, the
default behavior in the case of empty paragraphs in the target document has been changed.
Previously, the content of the source-language paragraphs used to be inserted for target-language
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015
21
paragraphs that did not contain any characters, e.g. during check-out or when generating a
preview of the target document. This behavior did not depend on the editing state of the
paragraphs and therefore took place for untouched paragraphs as well as for paragraphs with the
editing state "translated". (Thus, it was only possible to leave paragraphs in the target documents
empty by entering a white space in the target paragraphs.)
As of v6, this behavior has changed. Empty target-language paragraphs are now considered
empty, and the content of source-language paragraphs is no longer automatically inserted in the
corresponding target-language paragraphs.
As of v6, an alert is therefore displayed if, for example, an empty paragraph is set to the editing
state "touched" or "translated":
You can determine whether to leave the paragraph empty (L e av e E mpt y) or keep the source
text (Ke ep Sou r ce).
(Keep source),
If you select K e ep S o u rc e, the paragraph will be set to the editing state
which was introduced in v6. This editing state makes sure that the source-language contents are
transferred to the target document upon check-out, but without saving any translation units
to crossTank – your TM remains clean.
The editing state K eep so ur ce is a final editing state, i.e. a task can be finished without having
to set the editing state of the paragraphs marked with Ke ep s ou rc e to another state (e.g.
"Translated"). When executing mass operations and automated processes such as the pretranslation or the option "Mark All Paragraphs as", all paragraphs set to the editing state K eep
sou r ce will be skipped.
To directly set a paragraph to the editing state Ke ep sou r ce, you can, for example, click the
icon in the toolbar.
Like all other editing states, this editing state is also displayed in the Context View.
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015
22
Please note: The content of the source-language paragraphs continues to be inserted in
paragraphs with the editing state "untouched", e.g. during check-out.
If your documents often contain paragraphs that are not to be translated, these paragraphs can
e.g. be locked or hidden by means of a document settings template or within the scope of a
document preparation task. In this way, the respective paragraphs will remained "untouched"
throughout the project. Thus, the original content will be included in the target documents e.g. after
check-out.
•
Changed default setting in the advanced settings of Word and MIF: By default, some
elements in Word and MIF documents, such as hyperlinks and index entries, used to be offered for
translation as "editable fields". These fields, which are displayed in green in crossDesk, can be
translated via an item in the context menu.
Apart from this, there has always been an alternative processing mode in which the respective
elements are displayed as placeables (gray fields) in crossDesk. The contents of the placeables
are displayed in separate paragraphs, where they can also be translated:
The desired processing mode can be selected by means of an option in the advanced settings of
the document settings templates of "MIF 7", "MIF 8-11", "Word 2000-2003", and "Word 20072013":
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015
23
As of v6, the default setting is changed from the translation as editable fields to the translation in
separate paragraphs.
The change of the default setting applies both to new Across installations and to existing
installations when new document settings templates are created for the respective document
formats.
10 New Features Related to Document Formats
As of version 6.0, the following functions related to the document formats have been added to Across:
•
Support of SmartArt images in Word (DOCX) and PowerPoint (PPTX): SmartArt images are
often used in Word and PowerPoint in order to visualize various kinds of information in the form of
illustrations. Across now supports the translation of SmartArt images contained in Word (DOCX)
and PowerPoint (PPTX) files.
For this purpose, the text contents of the SmartArt images are extracted during check-in and can
subsequently be translated in crossDesk. The contents are displayed separately in crossView:
•
Optional translation of hidden content in Excel (XLSX) and Word (DOCX): In the document
settings templates of Excel 2007-2013 and Word 2007-2013, you can now determine whether
hidden content of the respective documents is to be checked in, making it available for translation
in crossDesk.
For Excel files in the XLSX format, three new options in the advanced settings of the document
settings templates enable you to determine whether hidden worksheets, hidden rows and
columns, and hidden cells are to be checked in, making them available for translation:
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015
24
For Word files in the DOCX format, a new option in the advanced settings of the document
settings template enables you to determine whether hidden text is to be checked in, making it
available for translation:
If the option is activated (i.e. hidden text is to be checked in and displayed), the hidden text will be
displayed in crossDesk and can be translated.
For the source document, the hidden text is displayed in the style field above the source text. In
the Target Editor, the hidden text can be inserted in the translation by selecting the respective
formatting.
If the option is disabled (i.e. hidden text is not to be checked in and not to be translated),
paragraphs that have been fully hidden in the respective Word documents will not be displayed in
crossDesk. (Therefore, the second paragraph from the above example is not displayed in
crossDesk; see figure below.)
If only part of a paragraph has been hidden, crossDesk will display this passage as a placeable,
i.e. as a gray field that cannot be translated but that merely needs to be adopted in the translation.
What’s New in Across v6?

You can find the options for translating hidden contents under > >T oo ls .. . > > S y st e m
S et t i ngs .. . > > Do cu me nt s S et t ing s > > E x ce l 20 0 7- 20 1 3 or > >W o rd 20 0 7- 20 1 3
> > Adv an c ed. .. .
•
Expanded support of PowerPoint files (PPTX): In the document settings templates of
PowerPoint 2007-2013, it is now possible to determine how images and objects are to be
processed. For this purpose, images and objects can be added to the respective document
settings template by clicking Ad d.. ., and the processing method can be determined:
•
Consideration of XML schema definitions for Tagged XML (v2): For Tagged XML and Tagged
XML v2, XML schema definitions (XSDs) are now also taken into consideration in addition to the
document type definitions (DTDs). If an XML file that is checked in to Across references a locally
stored XSD, the XSD will also be checked in automatically, and the QM criterion of the validity
check will check the validity of the target text against this XSD.
If the XML file references an XSD that is stored on the Internet, the XSD will not be checked in,
and the validity check will be performed against the XSD that is available online.
The XSD files can be imported in a new dialog under > > Conf igu r e.. . > > X S D set t in gs in the
document settings templates of Tagged XML and Tagged XML v2 (under > >T ool s > > S ys t e m
S et t i ngs .. . > > Do cu me nt Se t t in gs > >T agg ed XM L and T agg ed XM L v 2):
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015
26
In addition to XSD files, XML files in which the XML schema is integrated (XML MetaData; XMD)
are also supported.
•
Support of multiple-line display texts: The texts of displays may extend over several lines with
different line lengths. For example, this may be the case with display texts that fully or partially
encompass a button or control. With v6, such multiple-line display texts can now be checked in
and translated with crossWeb.
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015
27
•
Support of placeholders in display texts: As of v6, Across now also supports the use of
placeholders when translating display texts. The placeholders can be used for various types of
information: For example, they may stand for products or company names or other designations
that must not be translated. However, the placeholders can also be used for variable information
such as the time or temperature, which may have different lengths. For this purpose, it is possible
to configure details such as the maximum length of the variable in the underlying display text
format (DTXML).
•
Support of indexes in IDML documents (Adobe InDesign): As of version 6.0, Across also
supports the translation of indexes in IDML documents. For this purpose, the subjects of the index
entries are extracted from the IDML documents to be translated and can subsequently be
translated in crossDesk.
All subjects of an index are displayed as a group in crossView under "Index" and can thus be
translated together. In the actual text of the IDML document, the index marks are displayed in the
form of placeables that merely need to be transferred to the Target Editor.
After checking out a translated IDML document, the index must be created anew with the help of
InDesign in order to update the index entries.
•
Support of IDML documents with change tracking (Adobe InDesign): As of version 6.0,
Across supports the processing of InDesign documents in IDML format that contain tracked
changes. During check-in, all tracked changes are adopted: Text marked as "added" is integrated
in the document as "normal" text, while text marked as "deleted" is removed from the document.
•
Expanded support of MIF (Adobe FrameMaker): When processing MIF documents, it was
previously already possible to determine the processing method of system and user variables as
well as reference pages in the advanced settings of the respective document settings templates.
As of v6, it is now also possible to determine how master pages as well as cross-reference and
numbering formats are to be processed:

•
Support of Adobe FrameMaker 12 (*.MIF): Across now also supports the translation of MIF files
created with Adobe FrameMaker version 12.
•
Improved support of MIF (Adobe FrameMaker): MIF documents often contain elements (e.g.
variables) that are displayed as placeables in crossDesk, i.e. as gray fields that cannot be
translated but merely need to be inserted in the translation.
The translation of MIF documents has been streamlined in that v6 no longer offers paragraphs that
merely contain placeables for translation in crossDesk. Thus, the number of paragraphs to be
translated in crossDesk drops considerably in many cases.
•
Support of TAG files (QuarkXPress): As of version 6.0, Across now also supports the TAG
format, which can be used as an alternative to the XTG format for translating QuarkXPress files.
One advantage of the TAG format over the XTG format is that the entire text of a QuarkXPress
document is stored in a single TAG file. Also, the TAG format stores additional information, e.g.
information on processing anchored text frames.
•
Discontinued support of the *.tex format: As of version 6.0, documents in the *. t ex format can
no longer be processed and translated with Across. Before updating to version 6.0, any
translations of TeX files must therefore be finished, and the translated TeX files must be checked
out from Across.
If you still need to translate TeX files with Across, please contact your Across account manager.
11 New Features and Changes in crossTank
crossTank has been expanded or improved in the following areas:
•
Improved performance of crossTank: Compared to version 5.7, the performance of crossTank
has been improved significantly. For example, we have found pre-translations to be about 70
percent faster than previously. Moreover, our tests have indicated that the creation of crossGrid
and crossWAN packages has become up to 120 percent faster, and the import of crossGrid and
crossWAN packages has accelerated by up to 100 percent. Further significant performance
improvements are possible by using suitable hardware, e.g. SSD drives.

•
crossTank Performance Counters: Performance Counters are now available for crossTank.
With the help of the Across support desk, these performance indicators can be used with standard
tools such as the Windows Performance Monitor. For example, Performance Counters can provide
insight about the reasons for potential performance bottlenecks and help to monitor the system
performance.
Further information on Performance Counters is available e.g. on the Microsoft website at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa371643%28v=vs.85%29.aspx.
•
Context-independent translations: To mark translations as context matches, the translation
contexts are stored together with the respective translations in the form of references. However,
translations with a very high number of translation contexts can impair the performance of Across
as well as the data that need to be transmitted within the scope of crossGrid and crossWAN.
For translations with many translation contexts, Across version 6.0 therefore introduces the
possibility of classifying these translations as context-independent translations. Usually, these
translations are standardized translations that occur frequently, such as "Table of Contents" in
English and "Inhaltsverzeichnis" in German.
The use of context-independent translations is recommended especially in the following cases:
- For very large crossTank databases
- When using crossGrid and/or crossWAN
Activating Context-Independent Translations
Context-independent translations can be activated with a new option in the crossTank section of
the system settings under > >T ool s > > S ys t e m S e t t ing s. .. > >G en er al > > cr os sT an k.
(By default, this option is disabled.)
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015

Procedure for Context-Independent Translations
As soon as a translation exceeds the number of 100 translation contexts, it will automatically be
classified as "context-independent translation", provided that the corresponding option has been
activated (see above). In this way, the translation will always be considered as a context match,
even if new translation contexts are on hand and no genuine context match exists.
The classification as context-independent translation takes place separately for each language
direction: For example, a translation may be context-independent in the language direction
German-English but not in the language direction English-German.
When a translation is classified as context-independent translation, the translation contexts are not
deleted, but remain stored. This is the case especially also when new translation contexts are
added to the existing contexts. For performance reasons, the translation contexts are not
transmitted when transmitting context-independent translations, e.g. to a Trusted Server.
Manual adjustment of the status as context-independent translation is not possible. Moreover, the
number of 100 translation contexts as the limit for classification as context-independent translation
cannot be adjusted. (If translations are to be manually classified as context-independent
translations, you may use the function for protecting translations.)
Context-Independent Translations in the Reports and in the Case of Pre-translations
In reports, context-independent translations are presented as context matches. This is also the
case with pre-translations: Context-independent translations are treated like normal context
matches.
Mixed Operation of Across v6 with Predecessor Versions
The concept of context-independent translations is introduced as of version 6.0 and is thus not
supported in predecessor versions. When assigning and transmitting tasks to Trusted Servers
and/or to crossWAN users that use a version earlier than v6, the translation contexts of contextindependent translations are thus also transmitted automatically in order to ensure that context
matches can be found for these translations as well on the Trusted Server or offline user side.

12 New Features and Changes in crossTerm
Apart from the expanded display of search suggestions (see page 18), crossTerm has been expanded
or improved in the following areas:
•
Stemming in crossTerm for additional languages: As of v6, the stemming in crossTerm is
possible in Turkish and the following additional Eastern European languages: Bulgarian, Croatian,
Czech, Estonian, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Slovak, Slovenian, and Ukrainian.
Stemming is a procedure by means of which morphological forms of terms are reduced to their
respective basic form. For example, stemming enables the term "engine" to be found and
displayed in crossTerm if the plural form "engines" occurs in a text to be translated.
To use stemming for the additional language, you first need to add the respective add-ons in the
form of open source language packages of third-party providers.
The language packages can be managed in the crossTerm Manager under > >T o o l s
> >M an a g e s t e mm in g ad d - o ns .. .. In the "Available" section, you can download and install
language packages:
Already installed language packages can be uninstalled or temporarily disabled in the "Installed"
section:
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015
32
The stemming functionality for the additional languages has also been integrated in the QM
criterion of the crossTerm check in crossDesk. Thus, the QM criterion is checked, not only for the
basic forms of the terms, but also for the morphological forms of the terms.
As every activated language package consumes a certain amount of RAM, the process for the
stemming of the additional languages will usually inflate with every additional language package
that is activated. Therefore, we recommend temporarily disabling the language packages that are
currently not needed.
After changes in the management of stemming add-ons (e.g. after installing a new language
package or disabling an existing language package), the crossTerm Server needs to be restarted
when using the Across Language Server in order for the changes to become effective. When using
the Across Personal Edition, the Personal Edition needs to be restarted.
When using crossGrid and/or crossWAN, the respective language packages for the stemming will
not be transmitted to the Trusted Servers or offline users, but must be installed separately on the
Trusted Server or offline user side.
To be able to manage the stemming language packages, online users must have the right to
change the crossTerm settings. Offline users do not need this right. Thus, offline users can
autonomously install stemming language packages.
•
Synchronization of terminology deletions in crossGrid and crossWAN: As of v6, terminology
deletions are synchronized between the crossGrid servers and offline clients involved.
Thus, when using crossGrid, terms and entries that are deleted on the Master Server side are
automatically also deleted on the Trusted Server side. The deletions take place the next time
terminology is uploaded to the Trusted Server. Moreover, terminology deletions performed on the
Trusted Server side are automatically synchronized on the Master Server side.
The synchronization of terminology deletions between an Across Server and offline clients works
similarly when using crossWAN.
The synchronization of terminology deletions between a Master Server and a Trusted Server or
between an Across Server and an offline client can be configured by means of a new option when
compiling the crossTerm data packages (the following example shows the crossGrid Package
Wizard):
What’s New in Across v6?
Revision: April 22, 2015
33
By means of this option, the following settings can be selected:
- All terminology deletions will be deleted without any limitations.
- Only terminology deletions that correspond to the languages of the current crossTerm package
will be transmitted.
- Only terminology deletions that match the selected settings (e.g. filters) for the composition of the
crossTerm data packages will be transmitted.
The synchronization of terminology deletions between a Trusted Server and a Master Server or
between an offline client and an Across Server always takes place automatically. If the right to
delete entries and/or terms exists on the Trusted Server or offline client side, any deletions will
also be synchronized.
Synchronization of the terminology deletions is only possible if all crossGrid servers and offline
clients involved use Across version 6.0. (Thus, terminology deletions will not be synchronized in
the case of mixed operation of Across v6 and v5.7.)
•
Simplified free text search in crossTerm: Free text searches have been simplified both in the
crossTerm Manager and in crossTerm Web. For example, free text search queries can find any
entries or terms. Formerly, it used to be necessary to use the placeholder *. As of v6, free text
searches can now be performed without this placeholder.
Moreover, after opening the crossTerm Manager and crossTerm Web, the placeholder * will no
longer be displayed by default. However, it can still be used for search queries.
•
Expansion of the crossTerm Web suggestion module: In the crossTerm Web suggestion
module, it is now possible to automatically send an e-mail to the user that made the term
suggestion in the event of a status change of the term suggestion. In the "toAddress" attribute, the
placeholder { Sugg e st er } can be used as attribute value for the respective user. ( Further
information on this topic is available in the corresponding chapter of the administrator manual.)
•
Customizing of the input field and of the favicon of crossTerm Web: As of v6, the appearance
of the input field for search queries in crossTerm Web can be customized. Moreover, the favicon
can be replaced, e.g. with a corporate favicon.
•
Expanded browser support in crossTerm Web: As of v6, crossTerm Web supports all current
Firefox versions. Moreover, Internet Explorer version 11 is supported. (However, Internet Explorer
version 8.0 is no longer supported.)
13 New Features and Changes in crossWeb
Apart from the review mode (see page 17), the following functions have been added to crossWeb for
the purely browser-based use of Across via the Internet:
•
Expanded browser support: As of v6, crossWeb additionally supports the latest version of the
Google Chrome and Apple Safari browsers. Moreover, new versions of Mozilla Firefox and
Microsoft Internet Explorer are also supported: All new Firefox versions and Internet Explorer
versions 10.0 and 11.0 can now be used.

•
Improved performance and more efficient RAM use: The performance of crossWeb has been
greatly improved especially for high latencies. Moreover, the opening of tasks has been
accelerated. In addition, the RAM use of crossWeb has become more efficient. For example, v6
loads more of the information only when it is actually needed.
•
Enhanced logging in crossWeb: crossWeb now also offers enhanced logging. Unlike standard
logging, the enhanced logging function logs not only changes to the editing states of a paragraph,
but also the content changes implemented therein.
If enhanced logging has been activated in the system settings, the content changes implemented
in crossWeb will be saved.
Click Chan ge h ist or y. .. in the context menu of the Source View or Context View to view the
contents of the change history of the current paragraph. Click Rest or e co nt e n t to restore an
old version of the current paragraph:
The contents of the enhanced logging can also be displayed directly in the Correction Mode. The
display of the enhanced logging can be activated in the new "Source/Context View" section in the
crossWeb profile settings:
If this option is activated, the contents of the enhanced logging will be displayed in the Correction
Mode of crossTerm Web:

•
Contrast formatting in crossDesk Web: The contrast formatting function is now also available in
crossDesk Web. Thanks to the contrast formatting, the various styles in the source and target texts
are displayed with color highlighting. In this way, formatting differences can easily be spotted and
transferred to the translation.
To enable the contrasting formatting, click the
icon in the crossDesk Web toolbar.
•
Automatic detection of finished tasks: crossDesk Web now also automatically displays the
dialog for finishing a task as soon as all paragraphs have been set to the final editing state (e.g.
once all paragraphs of a translation have been set to "translated"):
•
Redesigned header: The header of crossWeb has been revised (e.g. new banner).
The crossWeb profile settings can now be accessed via the icon to the right of the user name.
Henceforth, the logout from crossWeb also takes place here.

14 Other New Features and Changes
Apart from the new Across features and extensions specified above, Across version 6.0 brings the
following new features and changes:
•
Dynamic activation/deactivation of softkeys for offline users: Previously, project managers
and administrators had to manually activate and deactivate client licenses. Across version 6.0
introduces dynamic activation and deactivation of the softkeys for offline users. This new function
ensures that offline licenses are automatically deactivated upon withdrawal or archiving of the last
assigned task.
During task assignment, users with deactivated licenses are still offered. Upon assignment of a
task, the respective license is automatically reactivated.
Offline users whose license is currently deactivated are displayed with the
T ask s module.
icon, e.g. in the
The dynamic activation/deactivation can be enabled or disabled as needed. The checkbox for this
function can be accessed in crossAdmin under > > Ac ro ss > > Sof t k e ys in the module bar on
the left of the screen.
To ensure that offline users who are members of a user crowd can confirm tasks at any time, their
softkeys are not dynamically activated/deactivated. The softkey activation/deactivation for these
users needs to be performed manually.
•
Automatic checking of mandatory QM criteria when finishing a task: To make sure that the
correct number of errors of mandatory QM criteria is displayed when finishing a task, v6
automatically performs another check of all mandatory QM criteria whenever a task is finished.
•
Support of alphanumeric dates without specifying the year: Across now also supports
alphanumeric dates (i.e. dates whose months are written out or abbreviated) even if the year is not
specified, such as "1. Januar" or "31. Dez." (in German). For this purpose, a desired date format
should be defined by means of respective formula in the corresponding field in the language
settings under > >T ool s > > S yst em S et t in gs .. . > >G en e ra l > >L an gu ag e S et t i ng s:

•
Optimized handling of "suspicious translations": In Across, "suspicious translations" are, for
example, translation units that contain a different amount of numbers in the source segment and
target segment. When saving such a translation unit to crossTank, a dialog window indicating this
is displayed.
In the following example, Across assumes a different amount of numbers: In accordance with the
language settings for German, a valid German date is recognized, which is interpreted as one
number (evident from the blue overline of the German date). In the English sentence, however, no
valid English date recognized, and the string is therefore interpreted as three numbers (evident
from the three blue overlines of the English date).
The dialog window has been optimized and redesigned for improved user friendliness. In the
dialog window, you can now click St o re t ra ns lat io n to save the translation unit to crossTank
as it is or Ed it t ra n s la t i o n to edit the translation. In the latter case, you will be taken back to
crossDesk, where you can edit the translation directly in the Target Editor – which is
recommended in the above example in order to replace the invalid English date with a valid one.
Upon completion, the translation unit can again be saved to crossTank.
•
Support of Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2: As of the release of version 6.0, Across
supports both the client system Windows 8.1 and the server edition Windows Server 2012 R2.
•
Support of Microsoft SQL Server 2014: As of version 6.0, Across supports the use of Microsoft
SQL Server 2014.
•
Support of new languages and sublanguages: As of v6, Across supports a number of new
languages and sublanguages. The new languages include Burmese (Myanmar), Punjabi and
Sindhi (Pakistan), Urdu (India), Tamil (Sri Lanka), Mongolian (Mongolia and China), Central
Kurdish (Iraq), Amharic and Oromo (Ethiopia), Tigrinya (Eritrea and Ethiopia), Tswana (Botswana),
Tsonga and Southern Sotho (South Africa), Fula (Roman, Senegal), Central Atlas Tamazight
(Tifinagh, Morocco), Cherokee (Cherokee), Guarani (Paraguay), and Hawaiian (USA).

New sublanguages include Valencian (Catalan), the country-specific variants of French from
Cameroon, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Mali, Congo (DRC), Morocco, Haiti, and Réunion as well as
Latin American Spanish and Hong Kong English.
All new languages and sublanguages are fundamentally supported, so that the support is available
in all clients, regardless of the installed operating system.
•
New package version in Across v6: The latest patch of Across version 6.0 uses the new
package version 18 – as opposed to package version 17 of the release version 6.0 and package
version 16 that had been used in the Across predecessor version 5.7. In the course of the update
to version 6.0, the package version is updated automatically. (The package version is only relevant
in the context of crossGrid and crossWAN classic and guarantees smooth exchange of files
between the crossGrid servers or between the Offline Client and the Across Server.)
If you are using crossGrid classic or crossWAN classic, you should inform the project manager on
the Master Server side (for crossGrid) or on the Across Server side (for crossWAN classic) about
the new package version in order to make sure that the project manager uses the new package
version when building crossGrid or crossWAN packages. In this way, you can ensure smooth
exchange of crossGrid or crossWAN packages.
•
End of support of Across version 5.5: As of July 1, 2014, i.e. as of the release of version 6.0,
Across version 5.5 will no longer be supported. If you still use version 5.5, we recommend
contacting your Across account manager.
