8. Manage translation process

You have full control over the resource files and translation process in Transifex.

Seeing the progress

You can see the overall progress in your Dashboard in the “Overview” mode, or you can look it up in the Progress Reports, by resources or languages.


You can receive notifications about:

  • Messages (new discussions, announcements, issues etc.)

  • Project & Language activity (file 100% translated, resources are added or removed from projects etc.)

  • Team and Collaborators activity (when you’re added or removed as a team manager etc.)

  • Orders (order is accepted or delivered)

Learn more about notifications here.

Prioritize resources

You can prioritize and mark specific resource files as priority. Learn more about this feature here.

Use tags

You can use various tags for different purposes (e.g. to tag the most urgent strings for translation, or to tag the strings that need a second review). Learn more about this feature here.

Use filters

You can use various filters within your resource files: to filter by status (translated or not), by tags (if you applied a specific tag), by translator (if you want to see the strings translated by a specific translator) etc. Learn more about this feature here.

Lock strings

You can lock full resources files or individual strings and prevent them from being translated.

Learn more about it here.

Set translation checks

You can set translation checks to ensure that the translations don’t miss key elements such as a variable or a link that could potentially break your website or app. Learn more about this feature here.
