Offline Work for Jobs

This article is for Agency Account Owners, Translation Resource Managers, and Translation Resources (Translators, Editors, or Reviewers).

This feature needs to be enabled by your Account Owner. Once it's enabled, you as an Agency Account Owner, Translation Resource Manager, or Translation Resource will be able to take your job offline.

There may be occasions when you need to take your job offline, and be able to work on it in another tool. You can do that by exporting a job, then importing the translated content back into Smartling once you're done. It's always advised not to take your work offline, unless absolutely necessary.

In the event that you need to take your work offline, you can achieve this via the Projects Dashboard and/or the Translation Resource Jobs Dashboard:

From the Projects Dashboard:

  1. Go to Projects Dashboard > View Project > View Details.
  2. In the Actions column, click View > Export for the language of the job you wish to take offline. This will prompt the download of an XLIFF file.
  3. Once you're ready to import the translated content, go to Actions > Import.

From the Translation Resource Jobs Dashboard:

  1. Go to Jobs Dashboard and select the ellipses button to the right of the job.
  2. In the dropdown, select Export. This will prompt the download of an XLIFF file.
  3. Once you're ready to import the translated content, go to Actions > Import.
