Managing Translation Projects

Get a Cost Estimate

This article is for Account Owners and Project Managers.

You can generate a cost estimate for your translation project. Each cost estimate takes into account the rates to which your translation vendors have agreed, any translation memory leverage; and repeated content within the project itself.

Estimate Via Jobs

If you've packaged your content into a job, you can generate a cost estimate for that job.

  1. Got to Projects (select a project) > Content > Jobs.
  2. Find the job you want to estimate then click the more icon and select Estimate. The Estimates panel will appear.
  3. Click Create Estimate. Make sure you have the correct workflow for the estimate, as the default for each language will appear. 
  4. Click Estimate.
  5. The estimate will be listed within the Previous Estimates section. 

Estimate Via Translations

If your content has not been packaged into a job, you can generate a cost estimate for a specific set of strings to be translated.

  1. Got to Projects (select a project) > Content > Translations.
  2. Select Awaiting Authorization from the drop down menu near the top left of the page.
  3. Click the checkboxes for the strings for which you'd like to run an estimate.
  4. After strings are selected, click Actions > Estimate.
  5. A side panel will open, click Create Estimate, select the languages you'd like the estimate for or Select All Languages then click Estimate.
  6. The estimate will show up in the same box under Previous Estimates for your review.
