Project Management

Pre-translation Overview

Pre-translation is the initial application of Non-Translatables, Translation Memories, Machine Translation and/or Human Translation Engines against a source text before it is presented to the Linguist in a Memsource Editor.

Pre-translation settings can be set at the project level in general settings, when creating a new project or when defining a project template.

They can also be set for individual jobs via the Pre-translate button in the job table but without options for the auto-propagation of repetitions.
