Post a translation project
How to post a translation project?
Once you have registered on the platform, you can post a translation project via your personal space by clicking on the button "translate a text" and paste your text into the provided space.
Choose the target language(s) into which you wish to have your project translated, and specify the category of your text.
At the bottom of the page you will see the total cost. Top up your account with the online secure payment system of your choice.
Once your account is topped up, go back to "My Projects" and confirm your order. If you do not do this last step, the translation will remain as a draft and will not be posted on the platform.
As soon as your translation is finished, you will be notified by e-mail and your project will be available in the tab "My Projects". Simply click on the "eye" icon to see your translation.
Project status on Dixit
- Status "approved" = The project has been validated by the client and is waiting to be reserved by a translator. At this stage, the client can still cancel the project.
- Status "in process" = The project has been reserved by a translator and is being translated. The client can no longer cancel the order.
- Status "finished" = The project has been translated, the client can take back the project.
- Status "draft" =The project has been saved, it is waiting to be validated by the client to be translated.
The lead time of a translation is approximately 1500 words/day (business day). This does not include the proofreading option.
Depending on the category of the texts to translate, the lead time can be longer or shorter.
For voluminous projects we can setup a dedicated translator team and allocate your projects to the team.
You can also post a project to be translated through our « quick order » feature. No need to create an account, it is convenient and fast!
In what case should I add an image to my translation project?
For some projects, e.g. translation of product descriptions, a visual support can help the translator understand exactly what is meant in the text and avoid any ambiguity. It is up to the customer whether he/she wishes to attach one or not.
May I modify or cancel an order?
You can modify or cancel a translation project until a translator reserves your project. After this, you cannot modify it or cancel it anymore.
Why is it important to give instructions to translators when I release a project?
Please give clear instructions and explain how you want your text to be translated to avoid any misinterpretation.
(E.g. your business activity, the person who will read the text, respect of a particular punctuation, expression to use, text format, pronoun etc.).
You can also choose the category of the text. It will also draw the attention of translators who have experience in the field.
For translations that require specific vocabulary, we recommend that you provide a glossary of words to use and that you take the proofreading option.
You can also join an image if the translation concerns a product. This may avoid any ambiguity about the vocabulary.
