    Email notifications?


    The feature list includes 'Email notifications' but I can't find any documentation on how this is set up, in my example using the in-built translation tool no external providers.

    I expect upon a new translation job it should be possible to set a user to receive email notifications?

    Thanks Andy

    Humm now i found the global setting in Settings > Translation Manager > Notifications , which lets me set fixed email addresses for the 'manager' to be notified on pending/submitted/returned translations , but that is no use for notifying the translators themselves.

    Say there are 18 languages with 18 different users who are intended to translate their one - can they be notified when a job is submitted for their language?

    It doesn't look like it, but maybe I can make a custom translation provider extending the default one and add functionality?

    Hi Andrew,

    yes the default notifications just send to managers,

    The upcoming version includes sending notifications to the user who creates a job.

    but you can also hook into the notifications if you want to do something complex (e.g send to different people depending on language).

    you can hook into the following events, to perform actions when jobs are created, submitted, received and approved :

            TranslationNodeService.Creating += TranslationNodeService_Pending;
            TranslationJobService.Submitted += TranslationJobService_Submitted;
            TranslationJobService.Received += TranslationJobService_Received;
            TranslationJobService.Approved += TranslationJobService_Approved;

    each of these events passes the job or node information so you can reach in get languages, creators etc, to work out what you might want to do.
