A job represents a file for translation into a specified target language(s).

If a single file is to be translated from a source into two target languages, it is represented by two jobs:

  • Job 1

    Translation of the file into English.

  • Job 2

    Translation of the file into Italian.

In Strings, multiple languages may be contained with one job.

Jobs can be viewed under the Jobs tab on a project page. Clicking on a specific job presents the status of the jobs with options for editing, duplicating, commenting on or deleting the job.

Use the options at the top of the list to search for a job by name, to filter jobs by involved users and status or to change sorting order.

Translation status is also presented under the Jobs tab and if complete, an .XLIFF or custom file format of the job can be downloaded.

Create a String Management Job

To create a job, follow these steps:

  1. From the Jobs tab of a project, click New job or if using an existing template, click Use template from the Templates tab.

    The Create a new job page opens.


    Using organization templates to create a new job may require adding other users and languages manually to the project.

  2. Provide a name for the job and select an owner from the dropdown list.

  3. Optionally, provide a due date, briefing, and ticket URL.

  4. Add keys or tags.


    Key selection is limited to 10,000 keys at a time.

    The key list can be filtered out through the following options:

    • To display only keys without tags, type -tag:. This allows to exclude tagged keys from multiple jobs and focus only on those which are relevant for the new job.

    • Type job:false to exclude keys that are part of an active job.

    • Type job:true to display only keys from jobs that are in progress.

    • Type created_at:>=yyyy-mm-dd to display only keys created since selected date (e.g. created_at:>=2023-06-01)

  5. Add required languages and assign a translator for each language.

    Use the Users tab in the dropdown to select single users. Use the Teams tab to select a group of users.

  6. Optionally, check Save as template and choose to create either a project-based or an organization template.

    Templates can also be created by clicking the new_template.jpeg button in the Templates dropdown on the Jobs tab of a project or in the main Jobs page.

  7. Click Continue.

    New job is presented in the Jobs tab.
