NEW [Flex] A new filter configuration option for content modifications

We have added a new filter for content modifications: "Do not reset status of translation with markup-only changes". This means that when there are no changes in the actual target text, the status of translation is not reset.

This filter applies only to the target text! Any modifications in the source text will trigger the red status in the translation.

If you need to recalculate the cost of a job when the price list is no longer active, the system will now select the first available price list in your list.

NEW [Word count] New Machine Translation word count profile for Repetitions

This development adds 2 exciting features:
(1) Repetitions are now highlighted in the Translation Editor with a small [R] icon. This goes hand in hand with the recently added filter option for repetitions.
(2) A new option is available on the word count profile: "Settings" > "Word counting" > "Pre-Translation by Machine Translation". Tick the option "Do not machine translate identical repetitions" to enable this setting in your project. As a result, the segments that are identical repetitions within the same document will not be translated by machine, but left blank. Instead, they will be counted as identical repetitions in the word count.

This new development aims to reduce the MT translation costs. For example, you can use the new word count profile in specific post-editing workflows where you do not want to pre-populate repetitions until the first occurrence has been post-edited.

FIX Invoices: Inconsistent total amounts in web and Excel view
