At the centre of LivoLINK’s system interaction are icons, commonly referred to as messages, which play an important role in communicating the current state of the system. They are visual cues that accompany users from the initiation of a request through to the final stage of a project. Some of them are informative, while others have a warning function, signalling potential problems or the need to take action.
Orange triangle with an exclamation mark: signals the need for specific actions to maintain the process flow. For example, after the translator has completed their stage of work, this icon would appear to indicate that quality control can begin.
Green shield: indicates key aspects of the work process, for example that a file was successfully uploaded.
Running man icon: indicates that a process is in progress and has not yet been completed.
Hourglass icon: also informs about the ongoing process, but indicates that it will require more time to complete.
Green card icon: indicates that the task proposal has been accepted by a vendor.
Black circle icon with the letter ‘i’: indicates that something needs to be corrected at a particular stage of the process, for example, that there is no way of calculating the price for a price list item.
Burgundy icon with an exclamation mark: indicates a failure, for example, the rejection of a task proposal or the incomplete translation in the uploaded package.
LivoLINK offers precise guidelines at every stage of the process, and their optimal use contributes to the efficiency of translation projects
