In some cases, the length of the translated text should not be significantly longer than the source text. You can set a custom limitation of the target length when creating a translation project.

In the online portal:

  • Navigate to project details from the list of projects
  • change the length of a target segment by clicking the edit button

In the desktop app:

  • Navigate to the General section and enter the allowed maximum length of translation.

When the maximum target length is set, a translator will get a warning message in the translation editor when the length of the translation exceeds the limit.

Note: A translator may still confirm a translation and ignore the warning message.
