Source layout and text check
If you upload a PDF file or a scanned image to a project, the system will automatically recognize text in the uploaded files. In this case the recognition result depends on the image quality. Before you start working, you can make sure the file has been processed, and the text recognized without QA errors.
When uploading a file to a project, tick the Check and correct source layout checkbox. This way you will be able to check the recognition results and make the necessary corrections of a document before you start translating.
Please note that you have to choose settings separately for each file. The corresponding icon will be shown if you choose to correct the layout.
Complete the project creation. Choose your file from the list and click Source layout and text check.
Download the prepared file from Initial Files and make sure it has been properly recognized.
If everything is right, press the Complete the layout check button. If not, make your corrections to the file and press the Upload button in the Work Files area to upload the corrected file. Please note that the corrected file may only be uploaded as DOCX.
Press the Finish the Layout Check button. You can also assign layout check task to Assignee, like any other task. Source layout and text check can be enabled in the document settings after the project is created if the translation has not been started. Click on the document settings icon:
Then tick the "Check and correct source layout" checkbox in the dialog box.

Translation layout check
A translation often happens to be significantly longer or shorter than the original. This might cause the translation layout to be distorted in the done file. To check translation layout in the translation file, tick the Check and correct post-translation layout checkbox when uploading the original file to your project.
Once the translation is done, select the document in the list and press Translation layout check.
Download the translated file from the Work Files area and check the layout.
If everything is right, press the Save button. If not, make your corrections to the file, then press the Upload button in the Work Files area and select the corrected file. Please note that the corrected file may only be uploaded as DOCX.
Press the Save button. You can also assign layout check task to Assignee, like any other task. Translation layout check and text check can be enabled after the project is created in the document settings.
