Enhancing the Translation Process

Job Attachments

Job Attachments allow for reference files to be uploaded to a Job for additional context for Translators. The Job attachment is accessible to all users who have access to the Job in the dashboard and to Translators in the CAT Tool.  These files are non-translatable and do not go through the translation workflow or count in word count estimates.

When translating Adobe InDesign files, attaching a JPG or PDF export of the InDesign document in the original language, and providing instructions about the document, you can create an excellent reference for translators to help them understand the context. Remember that not all translators can open the IDML file so Smartling strongly recommends that you provide context via instructions.
