Great Features Never Go Out of Style:

New improvements to our app wouldn’t be possible without a solid foundation. Here’s a recap of all the features that we’ve added over the years to make the Translate By Humans app a clear winner among our global clients:

Organizing Tickets

TBH app for Zendesk Features

  • Receive automatic machine translation of the inbound text: For an agent to understand what is being communicated or asked by the customer, the app translates all inbound queries and messages into the agent’s default language. 
  • View a conversation thread of all orders placed under a ticket: Track and monitor all correspondence related to a particular ticket, in one place. You can view the complete ticket history, along with machine translation of the content (inbound and outbound) that is not in your native language. This is especially helpful if you are a supervisor or administrator and would like some context while tracking your agents’ conversations with customers.
  • Reassign tickets to available agents: Continue to provide seamless customer support even if an agent is away midway through a ticket translation. Tickets waiting to be translated can simply be assigned to another agent who can complete the process.



Placing and Tracking Orders

TBH app for Zendesk In-app Features
  • Review tickets using unique order and ticket IDs: Agents can view the ticket ID and order ID under all other details related to a translation order. This speeds up response time as the agent can quickly identify which order is for which ticket.
  • Stay updated with the status of your order: Track order progress with real-time updates on changes in your order status. 
  • Dual tabs to check on all orders placed: Find all the tickets that have been sent for translation, under the All tab and all the orders placed for the current ticket under the Current tab. All translations linked to a particular ticket can be pulled up by a single click.
  • Live in-app notifications for completed translations: Knowing whether an order is complete is easy. Look out for a green dot (on the dual tabs) that indicates the completion of a translation order.
  • Highlighted order box to identify a completed translation: This feature helps you distinguish and identify a completed order from your list of on-going orders located in the All tab. When an order is complete, the order box will be highlighted in grey.  



Managing Translations

TBH app for Zendesk Ticket Reply Features
  • Get an instant word count before placing the order: There’s no need to email us or manually calculate the number of words in your order. This feature gives you an instant word count before you place your order.
  • Assign a category to your ticket: You can categorize tickets by the subject matter before sending them for translation. This helps us select an appropriate translator with experience and expertise in the subject area mentioned by you.
  • Choose from multiple options to format the text: Get creative with your responses with text formatting options that include bold, italics, or underline, bullets and numbering, hyperlinking, pasting as plain text, indentation, adding custom quotes, lines, and much more.
