Packages

After you've accepted a project, packages will become available for editing. One package will usually represent one source file however, if the file has more than a certain amount of words it may be split into multiple packages by the system. 

To Start proofreading and open a package, click on Proofread button on the right side.

Note:
When a translator finishes translating all segments in a package, the overall progress will be 50%. After a proofreader finishes his/her task, the project progress will increase to 100%.

When you've opened the web app translation editor, you can start proofreading the translations.

  1. Status Icon - indicates which segments have been proofread.
  2. Error indicator - shows if a segment has an error such as wrong tag order, missing numbers etc.
  3. Segment editor - allows you to open the translation and edit it. After a segment is confirmed, the status changes from Translated to Translated and verified by a proofreader.
  4. Comments - allows you to collaborate with a translator and in-country reviewer and leave comments for each segment.
  5. QA Report - Generates a QA Report which reports various errors, including terminology misuse and translation inconsistencies.

After you've confirmed each segment, navigate back to the task page and click FINISH THE TASK button. A project manager will be notified that the task was completed.
