● AI Actions give users access to a set of predefined prompts directly in the editor. From enhancing style and shortening text to rephrasing and improving grammar, AI Actions offers a range of options to improve the quality of the final copy.
● Automated Asset Curation to clean translation memories by automatically identifying and removing duplicates, correcting errors, and updating outdated translations.
