  • Select ME & MY TEAM

By taking this path, you are going to send translation to yourself and/or your team members. This means, that you will not have to pay anything to Text United for their translation service, of course.

  • By clicking an icon below, you can invite a new person to the system as well.
  • By clicking on the Add an existing user, you will assign the translation task to a Text United user that isn't a part of your translation team.

Add reference files to the project

To add reference files for the translation project which can be accessed by the translator, in the last step when creating a project click on the "attachment" icon in the add a note section. Supported files are: docx, xlsx, pptx, pdf, jpg, png

These files will not be included in the word count and the project itself.

  • You can add a note which will be sent to a translator and proofreader.
  • You can suggest a deadline for the translation project.
  • Click the CREATE PROJECT button.

Voila! You've created your first project.
