Automatic Jobs Splitting

Automatic Jobs Splitting automates the process of splitting a Job by language combination for certain Step Types in a project. For example, if you always need to have separate Jobs for each language combintation for a Translation Step (because you use different vendors for each target language), you can set up this automation accordingly in the Configuration menu. As a result, if you create a new multilingual project including Translation Step, that Step will automatically get split into as many Jobs as the number of language combinations set up in that project.

Global Configuration

Automatic Jobs Splitting can be configured globally for all new Smart Quotes and Smart Projects. To enable this feature globally:

  1. Go to Configuration menu.
  2. Go to Projects and Quotes > Automations (alternatively, start typing "Automations" in the menu's Search field).
  3. Scroll down to Automatic Jobs Splitting card.
  4. Switch the automation On using the switch in the upper-right corner of the card.
  5. From the drop-down list, select Step Types for which Jobs will be automatically split.
  6. The settings you choose are saved automatically and will be valid for every new Smart Quote or Smart Project.

Project-specific Configuration

Automatic Jobs Splitting can also be configured individually per Smart Quote or Smart Project. Such configuration takes precedence over the global settings described above. This means you can set up a different behaviour of this automation for each Smart Project, regardless of the global configuration. You can also switch off this automation for particular projects, despite it is switched on globally (and vice-versa).

To enable Automatic Files Delivery in a project or quote:

  1. Go to the Process card of the Smart Project or Smart Quote in question.
  2. Click the gears icon in the upper-right corner of the card.
  3. The Automation Configuration window appears.
  4. Switch the automation On using the switch in the upper-right corner of the Automatic Jobs Splitting section.
  5. From the drop-down list, select Step Types for which Jobs will be automatically split.
  6. Click Apply changes button to save your changes.
