Our experience, knowledge and lessons learned - all here just for you.
One of the key features of LingoHub is an organized workflow, which is achieved with the help of statuses.
The main purpose of statuses is to streamline and standardize all phases of the translation process. That way, you are, at any moment, aware at which stage your project is and what to delegate to the right people.
Types of statuses
Source language statuses
Source languages only have two possible statuses:
The default status for source text segments is approved.
Target language statuses
For the target language four statuses can be defined:
draft: status used for incomplete translations
translated: status used for completed translations, that are ready for review
approved: status only available to reviewers – indicates that the translation is complete and fulfills all the quality checks
not translated: status, by default, not available when updating the status of a text segment. Usually, it is used by LingoHub to automatically mark empty translations when importing new texts or when a translation has been deleted.
Below are the locations where you can use the statuses.
In the dashboard, statuses display the progress of projects at a glance.
In the editor statuses are visible in two places.
1 - filter through the text segments
2 - update the state of a single text segment
You can define from which text segment statuses your translation memory can learn from. By default, the statuses are set to translated and approved.
When using the Prefill feature to translate text segments, choose the status for the automatically translated text segments in the Prefill dialog.
Statuses can be used to define the following project settings:
- Workflows settings
- Export settings
- Translation orders
Text segments you want to send for translation can be chosen based on their statuses.
