Managing Translation Projects

Manage Issues

This article is for Account Owners and Project Managers.

To better understand the Issues feature, and the importance of addressing issues opened by linguists, see Respond to Questions from Linguists.

There are three different issues reports. See the Issues Reports article for more detail on each of the following:

  • Source Issues (Reports > Issues > Source Issues tab):
  • Translation Issues (Reports > Issues > Translation Issues tab):
  • Issues Details (Reports > Issues > Issues Details tab):

This article focuses on managing issues within the Issues Details report. If a string has multiple issues, it will appear multiple times in the report. The default sort order is by most recent creation date.


When viewing the full list of issues, you have multiple filter options to choose from:

  • Projects
  • Issue Status
  • Issue Type
  • Issue Subtype
  • Languages
  • Reporter
  • Created Before
  • Created After
  • Closed Before

  • Create/add a new issue by selecting whether it's a "source" or "translation" issue, and its subtype. Add an issue description. 
  • Any email address can be added as a watcher to receive notifications about an issue being opened, commented on, or closed.
  • Comment or comment and resolve an issue.
