If you already have existing projects, you can add another one by clicking on Add New Project after the last project card on your screen.

 

Creating a file-based project                       

Start a file-based project by selecting your source and target language(s).

  2. Target Language: This is the language in which you would like to translate your files. You may choose multiple target languages by ticking the relevant checkboxes from the list.

After choosing languages, begin uploading a file(s) from your computer or dragging and dropping file(s) to the platform. you may have to configure a few. Once done, you can either Create A Project or Request Translations.



The feature to request translations is only available once billing information is complete.
