You can improve the quality of your Machine Translations by tying in your project's glossary. Translated terms found in the glossary will be translated automatically using that Glossary term.
Installation and Setup
Configure Machine Translation Services in the Organization settings as described here.
From your Project -> Settings Link located on the left-hand side, Click on the Workflow Tab.
Click on "Link a glossary," as seen below.
From the ensuing drop-down list, select the project's glossary.
When the installation is completed, the workflow page should look like this:
Behind the scenes, Transifex sends all translated glossary terms to the Amazon MT service. Amazon MT will only recognize the first variant if your glossary has multiple translation options.
You can read the Appendix for more details on how Transifex glossaries are visible in the AWS interface.
Whenever the glossary in Transifex changes, perform the following steps to update the Glossary in Amazon Web Services:
Click on the "Update glossary" Link as seen below:
From the ensuing drop-down list, select the glossary file.
Glossaries on Amazon Service
When a sync glossary process starts, Transifex sends the selected glossary to the Amazon service. In the Amazon interface, the glossary is displayed as multiple custom terminology files, one per target language. You can identify these files by logging in to Amazon AWS with the account linked to the Amazon MT service and visiting the Amazon Translate area.
Terminologies created by Transifex follow the naming convention:
If you have uploaded a glossary file (CSV), and you get an error message from the system stating, "An error occurred, please reach out to our support for further assistance," the probable reason for that would be an issue with the file syntax.
Let us take this case for example.
Please check the CSV file to see if there is a line feed (LF) at your lines.
The space in the beginning is affecting the format of the CSV, so the file needs to be edited so that the line is like this.
That would solve the issue. In any case, you may always contact our support team for any other issue.
What Happens if You Upload a Glossary to Amazon and Then Detach It From a Project?
The glossary in Amazon will remain as is.
If the glossary remains unlinked, Amazon MT will not consider the glossary terms while translating.
