Adding Context to Phrases

Sometimes it's important to provide context for translators when they’re working on your project. For each phrase, you can add context to help translators better understand its meaning. When adding context at the phrase level, it will show up for all languages.

Any context that you add, including screenshots, will also be sent along with the phrase when sent to one of our Language Service Providers, Gengo or TextMaster. (learn how to order human translations)
