In the UI tab of the Site Configuration dialog box, you can configure the user interface of the Lionbridge App. Specifically, you can modify the following aspects of the PO Reference field, which is displayed in the Translation Job tab of the New Translation dialog box and in the Send Out Queued Items dialog box:
- the label of the PO Reference field
- configure this field to be either a dropdown list, with pre-configured entries, or a freeform text box
- If you configure this field to be a dropdown list, you can specify the pre-configured entries available for selection
To configure the user interface:
In the Site Administration menu on the left, ensure that My Site is selected, so that the My Site page is open. This is the default selection when you log into CloudBroker as a site administrator. For detailed information about this page, see Viewing Lionbridge App Information and Usage Data.
Click Configure Site.
The Site Configuration dialog box opens. The Site Name field at the top of the dialog box displays the name of your company’s site.

- Optional. To hide the Job Description field when sending out content for translation, you can clear the Show Job Descriptioncheck box. By default, this check box is selected.
