Question
I would like translators to use a specific Studio QA Checker Profile to be able to detect errors and inconsistencies according to specific settings that are relevant for my WorldServer environment. How do I add a Studio QA Checker Profile to WorldServer to make sure that is attached to the WorldServer WSXZ package exported for translation?
Answer
A Studio QA Checker Profile is a profile for settings to be used in Trados Studio for verifications. The QA Checker Profile can be exported from Trados Studio as *.sdlqasettings file:

In WorldServer (starting from version 11.3), you can select a specific profile to be added to the WSXZ package exported from a project in the Project Type settings. You will be able to do so only if a Studio QA Checker Profile has been previously uploaded into WorldServer. To use a Studio QA Checker profile in WorldServer, first, you need to upload it from the location in which Trados Studio exported it. To do so, follow these steps:

1- Go to Management > Administration > Customization 
2- Choose Studio QA Checker Profile from the Custom component type drop-down menu and then click Add.
3- In the Add Custom Studio QA Checker Profile Component dialog box, type a meaningful name for your QA Checker profile and then click Browse.
4- Use the Choose file to Upload dialog box to navigate your local directory structure, select the Studio QA Checker profile and then click Open.

Once you have uploaded the Studio QA Checker Profile to WorldServer as explained above, you will be able to select it in your Project Type's settings (Linguistic Tools tab).

To add the uploaded Studio QA Checker Profile to your Project Type, go to

Management > Business Rule Linkage > Project Types

and select the relevant Project Type. In the Linguistic Tools  tab, you will find the Studio QA Checker Profile section. In the drop down menu, select your Studio QA Checker Profile and click Save to save your change.

Note: if you have specific Studio QA Checker Profiles for one or more locales, you can select the Advanced option to to override the default Studio QA Checker Profile config for some target locales.

Once a Studio QA Checker Profile has been added to a Project Type, a project created with this Project Type will contain this reference and a WSXZ package exported from that project will include the Studio QA Checker Profile for the translator to run after opening the WSXZ package in Trados Studio 20172019 and 2021.

Moreover, the settings from the QA Checker Profile will also be applied when running the Verification in Online Editor if the Task is associated with a  project created using Project Type that includes a Studio QA Checker Profile. If not Studio QA Checker Profile is applied through the Project Type, the default verification settings will be applied in Online Editor.
