Configuring a file

Configuring a file

Once you've uploaded files to your project, there are some files you will need to configure for the platform to use. You can identify these file by a yellow exclamation mark that will appear with a button that reads Configure.


To configure a file, click on Configure. On the configuration screen that opens, map your source language and target language(s) for each column in a particular worksheet.


You can toggle between worksheets from the tabs above. Please note, it is mandatory to mark a column with a source language. The file's word count corresponds to this particular column linked with the source language. 

Once complete, an icon with a green tick mark will appear, and you will be able to see the total word count of your uploaded file.

You can choose to configure the next file by clicking on the Save and Configure Next File option.

To remove a configured file, click on the cross icon at the extreme left in each row. 
 
To continue uploading files, click on the Add More Files button on the bottom left of your screen.
