Projects are the core of MotaWord API. Any time you create a new translation project, you will be getting a translation quote. You can add documents, style guides and glossaries to your project or update its language pairs before launching it; some actions such as modifying documents or language pairs will change the price of the project.
When you decide to launch a project, begin its translation, you need to issue a
launch call. For details about launching and project payments, see this section.
Communicating context to translator is of utmost importance for a high-quality translation. Uploading files that assist translators with context such as style guides and glossaries are absolutely no-cost features and we encourage you to use them!
status field in project detail can be one of the followings:
- pending: The project is pending for payment, has not started yet. This is basically a quote at the moment.
- started: The project was launched and the translation has begun.
- completed: The project's translation and proofreading were completed and ready to be delivered.
