Adjusting Email Notifications

By default, Transifex sends in-app and email notifications for important events that happen within the platform. Inside your users settings, you can control which events you get notified about via email. 

To change your email notification settings:

  • In the main navigation, click on your profile image in the top right corner.

  • From the dropdown menu, select User Settings

  • In the left menu, click on Notification settings. You’ll see all the notification categories on the right hand side.

  • Click on a category name to reveal the available email notifications. Uncheck any you wish to stop receive. In some cases, there’s only an On/Off toggle next to the category name. Use the toggle to switch off any notifications.

    Notification settings

  • Hit Save Changes at the top to confirm the changes.


You can only change which email notifications you receive. For now, in-app notification settings cannot be changed.

Getting Notifications when new strings are added

  • Collaborators have the option to watch the project(s) they work on by enabling the Watch functionality. This option can be found at the upper right corner of the project's Overview page.


Watchers are notified whenever one of the following events happens:

-- A new source file is added.

-- An existing source file is updated.

-- A source file is deleted.

Once this notification type is triggered, watchers instantly receive an in-app notification and a grouped notification email is sent 2 hours after the first event occurs.

  • Collaborators (translators, reviewers, coordinators) that do not watch the project(s) they work on can still be notified when a new resource is created in Transifex. 

Once this notification type is triggered, they instantly receive an in-app notification and a grouped notification email is sent 2 hours after the first event occurs
