Scheduling Translation Jobs to Send Out Content from the Translation Queue

You can create a schedule that sends out translation jobs from the Translation Queue. The schedule defines the parameters for these jobs, including source and target languages, which content items to include, and when to send out the jobs. You can create multiple schedules, each with a different set of parameters for the translation jobs it creates.

To create a schedule that sends out translation jobs from the Translation Queue:
  1. Click Add.
  1. Enter the following information and settings for the translation jobs that this schedule sends:
