Reject Translation

Translations can be rejected if they are evaluated to be inaccurate. A rejection is done by right clicking on the record you want to do the rejection for, this will open the Reject Translation dialog, see Figure 5. This dialog will display the Prog Text for the translation and contains the field Reject Information where information connected to the rejection should be included. If the rejection is connected to a support case, Case ID can also be added in the field below. The rejection will then be sent to the translation agency which will update their translation memory accordingly.
