How to use Smartling to Translate Content

Update Job Due Dates

A Job due date is the deadline you expect the translation Job to be completed by. You can set the due date when you create the Job, or while the Job is in progress.

It is recommended to set the due date when creating the Job, as this will be included in the email notification sent to the linguists.

Due dates help Translation Resources (Translators, Editors, and Reviewers) prioritize their content. There are two types of Job due dates that can be modified:

Update the Due Date of a Job

  1. Go to the Jobs menu in the top navigation.
  2. Enter the Job Details by clicking the Job name.
  3. Click the existing date. A calendar will appear.
  4. Click on a new date in the calendar.

Your Job due date will now be updated.

Bulk-Update the Due Dates of Jobs

To bulk-update the due date of anything up to 500 Jobs:

  1. Go to the Jobs Dashboard (account-level or project-level)
  2. Select the Jobs you want to update
  3. Click Actions > Update Due Dates

Update the Due Date of a Workflow Step (New Experience)
