Monitoring Jobs

You monitor translation jobs in the Status tab of Translation Status page.

  • Do one of the following to monitor the status of jobs sent for translation:
  • In the Touch-Optimized UI of Adobe Experience Manager, click the Tools icon and then click Lionbridge Connector in the Adobe Experience Manager rail. (This opens the Connector in a new browser tab.) Then, click Translation Status in the Lionbridge Connector rail.
  • In the Classic UI of Adobe Experience Manager, scroll down and click Lionbridge Connector in the right pane. Then, click Translation Status in the Lionbridge Connector rail.
  • In your Web browser, navigate to /content/ctctranslation/status.html on your Adobe Experience Manager instance.

By default, if you are a non-admin user, you can view jobs that you and your team submitted. If you are a member of the Translation Admin group or if Display all jobs and Delete button for non-admin users has been configured for your company in the Folder and Permissions section of the Configuration page, then you can view all company jobs. For more information about these configuration options, refer to the Lionbridge Connector for Adobe Experience Manager Installation and Configuration Guide.

  • To filter the jobs by date, in the Period and to fields, enter the date range of when the jobs were submitted in the YYYY-MM-DD format, or select the dates in the calendar that opens.
  • To filter the jobs by submitter, in the Submitted By dropdown list:
  • Select Me to display all your jobs.
  • Select My Team or My Team(s) to display all jobos submitted by members of your team.

This tab displays the following information about each translation job:

Job The name of this translation job. By default this includes the username, date, and time when the job was created, for example: Submit by [admin] @ 2013-12-20 6.57 PM.
Created On The date and time when the job was submitted, in the following format: MM/DD/YYYY h:mm AA, where AA is two upper-case characters reflecting a.m. (after midnight) or p.m. (after noon).

Note: If a translation job was created in Adobe Experience Manager's translation integration feature, the username is admin.

Est. Words

The estimated number of words to translate in the translation job. If there is a number in brackets, it represents the number of words that have been previously translated and are stored in the local TM (translation memory).

Note: The number of words in digital assets, such as JPG or PDF files, is not displayed.

LSP

This is one of the following:

  • If you are not using the Clay Tablet Translation Connector for SDL TMS, then this is translation provider to whom the Clay Tablet Platform sends the translation job.
  • If you are using the Clay Tablet Translation Connector for SDL TMS, and you have not specified an SDL TMS configuration, then this is translation provider to whom the Clay Tablet Platform sends the translation job.
  • If you are using the Clay Tablet Translation Connector for SDL TMS, and you have specified an SDL TMS configuration, then this is your meaningful name for that configuration, for example, Default GUID. You define an SDL TMS configuration in the TMS GUID Config page. For details, refer to the Lionbridge Connector for Adobe Experience Manager Installation and Configuration Guide.
Preparing The number of pages in this job that the Connector is currently preparing to send out for translation.

In trans The number of pages in this job that are currently being translated by the translation provider.
Received The number of pages in this job that the Connector has received back from translation.
Completed The number of pages in this job that the Connector has returned to Adobe Experience Manager. If a job was redelivered by the translation provider, then the number of times it was delivered is displayed, in brackets, following the number of pages. For example, if a job has 3 pages and was delivered 4 times, this column displays 3 (D:4).
