TMS adopts automated LTB reporting in onDemand

It is our pleasure to announce to all our onDemand vendors that starting by mid of July you will not need to create and upload your LTB reports manually anymore when working with TMS. Our system will soon be capable of doing this automatically for you.

Once our new automated LTB feature is deployed on TMS, you will just need to check in your translated XLZ files and TMS will handle the report for you. This means for you, say your goodbye to:


  • Lost time spent on reading lengthy instructions
  • Efforts of installing and continuously updating LTB
  • Dealing with the search for the correct LTB configurations
  • Requests from our language team to re-run a report because it is faulty


This will all soon be the past. The future holds a refined process that will save us at Lionbridge as well as you as our valued vendor time through automation. The new process will roughly look like this:


  1. Check in your translated XLZ files without the self-created LTB report
  2. TMS will auto-generate the LTB report for you
  3. You will receive the Check_LTB_Report_and_Fix_Issues task along with the auto-generated LTB report
  4. You will still have to comment the LTB report, fix all valid issues in the XLZ file/s and deliver them along with the commented report
  5. Our language leads will assess your delivery and pass it on if all is fine


We hope that you are as excited about this new, timesaving feature as we are. If you have any questions, do not hesitate and simply contact us via
