Translation Workflow

Smarting Language Services Workflows

Your new Smartling account comes with two pre-configured workflows, to give you a strong foundation, so you are ready to translate from day one with Smartling Language Services.

The pre-configured workflows available in your new account are:

  1. Machine Translation: Smartling Auto Select
  2. Human Translation: Smartling Language Services 

Machine Translation: Smartling Auto Select


The quickest, cheapest and easiest solution to any localization workflow is Machine Translation (MT). Smartling's Auto Select offers high-quality, high-speed, and low-cost translation. This is perfect for your first Job, to test translation quality, or to just get your content localized to reach your global audience as quickly as possible.

This is a one-step workflow, where your content is machine translated and automatically published, ready for you to download and launch (anywhere).

Human Translation: Smartling Language Services 


Smartling Language Services (SLS) are a unique Language Services team of highly qualified, industry-leading professional linguists based from all over the world.

This is a two-step workflow, with an additional Processing step. Your content is analyzed and assessed, and the best possible resources are assigned to translate and edit the content, before it is published and ready for you to download.

The above workflows cannot be edited.

Want to learn more about workflows?

We have tonnes of helpful resources ready for you to start experimenting with your workflows, including an unconfigured example workflow for you to test with. As there are no resources assigned to this workflow, it is a handy tool for training your team on how to use Smartling, both as a content creator and linguist, without actually paying for any content to be translated.
