How to edit a translated phrase

We know machine translation isn't perfect. Machine translations aren't 100% accurate as they can't understand the context of your phrases, grammar, etc. If relying on machine translations, we recommend having a native speaker review the translations and make edits. Or simply order translations from one of our third party professional translation providers.


Editing Translations

1. Select a language

Go to your Phrases tab and select a language in the left sidebar (and select the Published status).

2. Click Edit

With machine translations enabled, there will already be proposed translations. You can click on Edit to make changes to the translation.

3. Add translation

Without machine translations enabled, you can add your own translation by clicking on + Add translation.

4 Click Publish

Don’t forget to save by clicking on the green Publish button.


Advanced In-Progress Workflow

With the 'In-Progress' feature enabled, 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 website.

With the 'In-Progress' state enabled (requiring review of translations before publishing live on your website), new proposals (either from the machine translation engine, an in-house translator, or our 3rd-party providers) will be waiting for you in the 'Needs Review' category.
