Using the Continuous Job feature, updated versions of an original file from a repository are uploaded to an existing project, overwriting the older version of the same file.
When new strings are added to a file in a repository, the modified source strings are updated and any deleted source strings are deleted. Unchanged strings that are already translated are copied to the updated version of the job.
The job is monitored periodically based on thesettings.
If a change in the source file is detected, the job in Memsource is updated.
If the job that is being updated is opened in the Web Editor (i.e. someone is working on it), a notification is displayed to the user, and they are prompted to reload the job.
Segments are updated based on the changes made in the source file.
Before updating, unchanged segments are copied together with the translation in the target.
The target is cleared for segments with the changed source. (The previous translation for confirmed segments isn't lost because it's saved in the translation memory.)
Segments deleted from the source file are also deleted from the job in Memsource.
Exporting Translations Back to the Repository:
The translation is periodically pushed back to the repository based on the frequency set in thesettings.
Translated target segments are exported only if they have been modified.
Even unconfirmed modified segments are exported.
If a multi-step workflow is used, only changes in last workflow step are exported; the status of previous steps must be set to Completed but the step from which the changes are exported does not.
Each target file is stored in a language-code subfolder (e.g. ./en_us). Multilingual files are stored in a subfolder with a name that is concatenation of all target language codes (e.g. ./cs-de-zh_cn)
Only available for specified file formats.
The file must be uploaded from an online repository using a connector.
Continuous jobs are presented in the project page with . The tooltip indicates when the job was last updated.

To set continuous job frequencies, follow these steps:
From the Setup page, scroll down to the section and click on Continuous Job Settings.
This controls how often the repository is checked for updates. (The shortest interval available is every 30 minutes.)
This controls how often the translated content is exported back to the repository. (The shortest interval available is every 30 minutes.)
Provide Target Subfolder Path if required. See Automatic Project Creation for more information.
Settings are applied to any new jobs.
Once settings are chosen for a particular job, they cannot be changed for that job. If changed at a later time, they will not apply to jobs that have already been set up. New settings will only apply to new jobs.
To import continuous jobs to a project, follow these steps:
When creating a job, in step two, click on Add from Online Repository , select a repository/file and click OK.
The selected file is displayed on the New Job page.
Select the Import files as continuous jobs radio button.
This option only appears if at least one of the selected files is supported for Continuous Jobs.
Finish creating the job.
