Red dots in translation cells mark items with so called â€œInvalidatedâ€ status. Sisulizer automatically assigns this status to rows with existing translations marked with â€œChangedâ€ status after scan for changes (red dot in Flags column of translation sheet). Invalidated status is cleared automatically after edit of translation for changed original. If you donâ€™t change translation for changed original, you need manually clear this status via row context menu -> “Translation” -> â€œInvalidatedâ€ (Of course you can also check this item for any translation cell). If you use “Project” menu > “Clear Changed Status” all “Changed” statuses will be cleared and by accident you can overlook important changes in original strings required also changes in translations. You canâ€™t revert “Changed” status for items in project, but â€œInvalidatedâ€ dots allows you still to find these potential overlooked items.
You can use special filter for filtering of invalidated items via “Sheet Filter” -> “Other” tab. It allows you to find quickly all invalidated translations in project. Additionally you can exclude/include invalidated items from/to exchange package (“Exchange Wizard â€“ Filter” step of wizard -> “Other” tab) or export file (“Export Wizard â€“ Options” step of wizard -> “Other” tab). Below is a screenshot with this filter for translation sheet.
