Step 5: Customizing project settings

Once the project has been created, you will be taken to the project page. From there you can get to the Settings tab and make some changes that will affect the project. This also gives you an opportunity to correct some settings that might have been incorrectly adjusted during project creation.

Changing previously made settings

Click in the gear icon shown above and change the project data or workflow steps in the form that opens. 

If you plan to invite collaborators for working on the project, it would be reasonable to adjust their permissions.

Select Assignee settings to allow or forbid various activities at each stage of the project workflow.

Changing repetition settings

Documents may contain segments repeated multiple times throughout the entire project. With Smartcat, you can only translate and confirm the segment once, while all its repetitions will be automatically filled in.

To enable auto-propagation and confirmation of the repeated segments, select Repetitions as shown above.

Adjust the settings in the menu that opens.

  • Allow auto-propagation. This is the master switch that will tell Smartcat to look for and fill in the repetitions throughout the entire project.
  • Force for the entire project. This setting will make assignees comply with the rules set up by the project manager.
  • Propagate to segments with different case. If two segments have identical content but different case, Smartcat will propagate the text to such segments regardless of their case in either of the two scenarios:

Use the original case — the current segment's case will be saved.
Use the match case — the current segment's case will be changed to match the first confirmed segment.

Propagate to confirmed segments. When enabled, this setting will overwrite all previously confirmed segments with the segment being confirmed the last.
Confirm auto-propagated segments. Once auto-propagated, the segments will be automatically confirmed.
