How to enable additional MT engines? #️⃣

Additional MT Engines can be unlocked by upgrading to the Professional or Autopilot plans.

How does it work? #️⃣

After upgrading, everyone involved in translating your project can see the suggestions from unlocked machine translation engines, leading to faster translations and generally better translation quality.

Currently supported MT engines are:

  • Amazon Translate (Free Tier)
  • Google Translate (Professional Tier and above)
  • DeepL (Autopilot Tier and above)
  • Open AI (ChatGPT) (Autopilot Tier and above - with your own API key)

On top of these external engines, the Professional plan upgrade allows you to see suggestions from ShareTM for translations, even when your project is not a part of ShareTM (Settings > Use community translations = off).

MT pre-translate #️⃣

With the Professional plan active, a new feature becomes available - MT pre-translate.

Use it in the File management to apply machine translations of your choice to your texts in the available files. Just select the desired engine and target language.

You can also translate all strings in the project to a desired language by navigating to Translations screen and selecting Pre-translate with MT from the context menu of the language. Then, you are only asked to choose which engine should Localazy use.

⚠️ Please note that applying automatic machine translations might result in unexpected errors in your placeholders, glossary terms, and special markup contained in the source strings. Consider using our Human-Assisted Machine Translations service to ensure a better quality of translations and avoid potential bugs.

Don’t worry about pre-translate overwriting your work. The pre-translate function does not affect existing translations!

You can also choose:

  • if you want to send new translations to review or approve them all
  • to apply the translations to keys that already have some translation waiting for review
  • apply new translations to keys where the source string changed

Limitations #️⃣

  • Pre-translate might not work in case your source content is too long. (Learn more)
  • Pre-translate currently does not apply to plurals, because there might be different plural forms in the source and target language.
  • Pre-translate does not translate keys with translations that are already translated, even though there might be another version waiting for review (waiting for review = true AND missing current version = false).
  • Pre-translate might result in unexpected errors in your placeholders, glossary terms, and special markup contained in the source strings
