Basic overview

Tygeris consists of two parts:

  • Tygeris Editor is the translation environment where translating itself takes place.
  • Tygeris Manager is an affiliated management system for both individuals and organizations. Individuals (translators) can use it to manage their documents and receive work (translation tasks) from organizations they cooperate with. Organizations are able to upload documents, manage their projects, effectively distribute the translations and exchange files with their clients.

Files and documents

File is unbounded category, comprising of text, images, audio, etc.

Document is translatable file, i. e. it must contain text. Every document is also a file, but not vice versa.

Organization

Organization owns projects and incorporates users to work cooperatively on projects and jobs.

  • Organization users are users associated with the given organization (members, employees).
  • Organization resources are resources (translation memories, machine translators, glossaries) associated with given organization.

Technically, private projects is an organization, too. However, it is not possible to add users nor distribute translations. It shall only be used for private, non-shared projects.

There are two available user rights:

  • User management enables users to access the "organization users" page. Privileged user can add organization users into projects or remove them and grant/revoke project rights (see below).
  • Organization management enables users to access the "organization overview" page and manage organization's projects.

Project

An organization can incorporate any number of projects which are used to assign resources and group specific people. For each project, manager chooses a subset of organization users and resources to be used.

  • project users are users assigned to given project.
  • Project resources are resources (translation memories, machine translators, glossaries) assigned to this project. They are subset of organization resources.

There are four available project rights:

  • Project management enables users to access the project via projects page and manage orders and project resources.
  • User management enables users to access the project users page. Authorized user can add/release organization users (TODO: Really?) and grant/revoke organization management and user management rights.
  • File management enables user to access the project files subsection of the Project section. Privileged user can add files to project storage for project managers to validate User/manager can prepare project based on files from the client.
  • Document management enables user to access the Project documents subsection of the Project section. User/manager can manage (add, delete, archive, translate, assign) project documents.

Order

orders (jobs) can be used for fine-grained translation splitting. The number of orders per project is not limited, but there is always at least one, the default, called base order, which cannot be deleted.
