NEW [Project Settings] Automatic consolidation of Resources to base languages

We have added a new setting that enables you to merge resources to base locale if strict locale does not exist in the Translation Memory. To access this option, go to ''Project Settings'' > ''Resources'' > ''Consolidation'' > ''Configure'' and enable/disable the checkbox: ''Create locale if it does not exist."

If this option is unticked, the project memory will consolidate its contents to the base language without creating a strict locale.

IMPROVED [Resources] More descriptive errors for invalid TMX/TBX files and TMX import with versioned languages

When importing a resource from TMX or other formats, the upload screen now gives a more descriptive error information when the file is corrupt or it contains invalid content. For example, you will be clearly notified when the language code in the TMX file is invalid. This improvement helps you understand what is wrong with the file.

In addition, the import/export of TMX files with versioned language codes (es-US(v3,es-US) does not give errors anymore. Such codes are generated in Wordbee when you use special workflows such as "back translations" or "parallel translations."

FIX [Standard project jobs] Email notifications when changing deadlines

Normally, deadline changes are notified by email to the supplier and manager if they subscribe under 'My Account' to company events. However, when changing the deadline of standard jobs, no such notifications were sent. This has been fixed.

NEW [Terminology tool] Display all the terms related to a concept in the main list of concepts

The search bar in the Terminology Management space has been updated to include in the list of results any term documented in a database, together with its relation to other terms in that concept. This allows for more refined search capabilities, making it possible for a user to find the terms in the database that match the criteria set in his query. For example:
- If the search criteria match the alternative term, then it will be only displayed without displaying the main term.
- If the language filter contains two languages and the search criteria match a term from the target language, then the main term for the source language will be displayed.
- You can now control the displayed language in the terms list by changing it from the language filter. In case you select two languages, then the source language terms will be displayed.

NEW [Wordcount and Pre-translation]: All pre-translated segments are counted from the same source (pre-translation or translation memory)
