A translation project can be roughly divided into a few steps: pre-translation, translation, review and proofreading. Please note that a project workflow applies to an individual project, so you would need to set up project workflows for each project you have in Transifex.


In Transifex, you can do pre-translation work to save time and money. The two options available are:

Pre-translation tasks automatically run when you upload new resources or update existing ones.


Translation in Transifex can be done by vendors and freelance translators, by in-house translators, by the community - or by a mix of different methods.

Review and Proofreading

After the translation is done, it is recommended to have it reviewed to ensure quality. A review step is usually included in the project workflow in Transifex.

There might be different scenarios of how the translation and review step work: your vendor might be doing both (so they mark the translations are translated and reviewed); or your vendor does a translation only, and your in-house team member does a review step; or your in-house native speaker does a translation, and your vendor’s reviewer does a review.

Proofreading is the final step of a translation workflow. It is up to you to choose whether to include this 3rd quality assurance step in your workflow or not; to include it for a certain project or for all projects.
