Using the Translation View

Paligo's Translation View is a built-in editor designed for use when you are not using an external translation service and are doing the translations internally instead. The people in your organization who will do the translation work can use the Translation View to add translations, make comments, compare the translations and more.

Translation View shows two versions of the content side-by-side. One is the source language, the other is a translation in another language.

Note

We recommend that you use a professional translation service for handling the translation of your content. If you use a translation service, you may decide to not use the Translation View at all, as you can accept the translations from the Resource View instead (see Review a Translation from a Translation Service).

If you have a full author license in Paligo, you can use the Translation View directly from the content manager or the resource view. If you are allocated to a translation or translation review assignment, you can also use the Translation View to do those tasks.

If you have a reviewer or contributor license, you can use the Translation View when you are allocated to a translation or translation review assignment.
