K4 External Task Dispatcher (K4 XTD)

Integrate Third-Party Systems Within Your Workflow

K4 XTD (External Task Dispatcher) obtains tremendous time-savings by tasking third-party systems to edit texts or images in the background, fully automated and in parallel to the editorial workflow. Integrated with image processing tools to analyze or edit pictures (e.g. Elpical Claro, Fotoware Color Factory) or translation memory systems (e.g. across, SDL Trados, ONTRAM) K4 XTD tasks and retrieves the results fully automatically. If a new file version is returned to K4 XTD from a third-party system, it is saved as a new version of the object in vjoon K4®, including any changes of meta data information.

Highlights

  • Integrated and process oriented management of third-party systems (e.g. translation memory systems, image enhancement).

  • If a new file version is returned, it is saved as a new version of the object in vjoon K4, including any changes of meta data information.
  • After processing the returned file is integrated into the vjoon K4 workflow with a corresponding status.
