Set Translation Character Limit

This article is for Account Owners and Project Managers.

Smartling allows you to set a character limit on a string’s translation. Setting a character limit warns translation resources when a translation exceeds your limit. Configure the severity of this warning in your Quality Checks setting.

To set a character limit:

  1. From within a Project, click Content > Translations.
  2. Mouse over a string and click the T icon.

Translation Character limits can also be set in the CAT tool by clicking Set Character Limit in the Additional Details panel.

Character limits apply across all languages.
