  • Machine Translation (MT) Pre-translate – takes translations from supported machine translation engines (MTE) and applies them to the project content. You need to configure at least one of the translation engines to enable this feature.

Use Case

Choose the pre-translation method that works best for your specific project.

Pre-translation via TM

Pre-translation via TM allows you to reuse previously made translations to:

  • Speed up the localization process, as translators will have fewer texts to translate
  • Maintain project consistency, as all repeating texts will share the same translations
  • Decrease translation costs as the volume of translatable texts will be smaller

Pre-translation via MT

Use this method if you have small projects with straightforward content. Connect the MT engine and perform a pre-translation in a few clicks to ease the translation process. Once finished, you may review the texts yourself or invite a professional proofreader.

  1. Open your project and go to the Dashboard tab.
