Not setting target language

Marcela 8 months ago in Home Portal / Smart Projects • updated by Marek Joniec (XTRF Product Manager) 8 months ago 2

Hello again, I have a DTP project that has EN as source language but many languages as target which are not really relevant to the project, since this is not a language thing but a design thing. Is it OK if I don't set up a target language? What will happen with my receivable if I do this? Thank you!

Hi Marcela

Technically the project in XTRF requires both source and target language, at least form the Vendor assignment perspective. You can't select a Vendor for a job if there's no language pair.

And since you can't select a Vendor you can't start and complete job, thus the project won't get closed.

In a case like this, when the Target language is not so important, I'd suggest selecting the same language twice, as both the source and target of the project.

Best regards,

Marek
