Q. Why pre-translate a file? You might want to pre-translate a file in the following cases:

  1. You are sending the translation job to someone as a package and do not want to send them the translation memory (TM) for security or confidentiality purposes.
  2. You are sending the translation job to someone as a package and you do not want them to modify 100% match segments, edit source segments, or merge/split segments.
  3. You are sending the translation job to someone as a package, they do not have a Google or Microsoft MT API key, and you want them to post-edit a machine translation.
  4. You want to get a fast, machine translated version of your file in the same format and avoid time-consuming copy and paste as well as desktop publishing when using an online MT engine.
