In-Progress Workflow

Requiring admin privileges to publish translations.

Once you've approved a phrase from the Pending page, the phrase moves into Published for translation.

If you turned on automatic machine translations, machine translation will be instantly ordered and added to each phrase. Then by default your active translated phrases get published live onto your application instantly.

Review translations before publishing

All proposed translations will await approval for publishing in Needs Review.
Phrases within Needs Translation have no current or previously proposed translation.

When translations pass a quality review -- simply click Publish to activate it live on your application.

Publishing Translations with In-Progress

Translations have unique status for each language. Publishing a proposed translation in Arabic, for example, would not change the publish status of another proposal in another language.

Declining Proposals

Sometimes, translations won't pass a quality review. When that happens, an option to Decline is available.

When declining, remember to provide an explanation to the translator as to why the translation is inaccurate.

Clicking Reject will move the content segment into the Rejected category of In-Progress.

Translators will see the comment and have an opportunity to propose a new translation.

Translation History

Click History to view and propose / publish / delete any prior proposed, reviewed, or published translations.

  1. What happens to a live translation if I make a proposal an a phrase?

    The translation will remain active while the new translation is in progress. Only when (or if) the new translation is moved to published will it replace the live translation.

  2. How can I remove a live translation from my website when in-progress is enabled?

    Changing the translation state to "Review" from the phrase dropdown will remove the active translation from the website and set the translation to review. You can also "Unpublish" the phrase.
