Track Translations

In this article, we'll explore how you can effectively manage and track translations of your content in Scroll Documents compared to Scroll Translations.

Tracking in Scroll Translations

In Scroll Translations, you have access to a built-in Translations report, a tool for monitoring the translation status of various pages within your Confluence space. This report provides insights into the status of your translations, helping both authors and translators stay organized.

With the Translations report, you can identify:

  • Translation status: Shows the current translation status of each page, whether it's translated, outdated, or not translated.

  • Last modifier: See who made the last modifications to a page, helping you track contributors.

  • Last modified date: Displays the date when the page was last modified, allowing you to monitor recent updates.

Tracking in Scroll Documents

In Scroll Documents, the approach to tracking translations is done using Confluence page labels. Here, you'll find two primary translation statuses: "Translated" and "Needs-translating." When you convert your content to Scroll Documents from Scroll Translations, your existing statuses undergo transformation:

  • Translated: This status remains unchanged, indicating that the content is already translated.

  • Outdated → converted to "Needs-translating": Pages marked as "Outdated" in Scroll Translations will be converted to "Needs-translating" in Scroll Documents.

  • Not Translated → converted to "Needs-translating": Pages that were previously labeled as "Not Translated" will be converted to "Needs-translating" in Scroll Documents.

Unlike Scroll Translations, Scroll Documents does not offer a dedicated Translations Report. Instead, you can filter pages in need of translation by using a Content by Label macro on a page and filtering based on the label NEEDS-TRANSLATING. This approach enables you to identify pages that require translation efforts. The statuses are then updated either when you change the label on a page, or automatically in bulk when using the Synchronize pages feature in Translations for Scroll Documents.

Both Scroll Translations and Scroll Documents offer methods for tracking translation progress, but they do so in slightly different ways. Scroll Translations provides an inbuilt Translations report, while Scroll Documents uses a more flexible approach to filter for page labels using the Content by Label macro.
