Reference materials are useful for when you want a file accessible to translators and reviewers, but that file isn’t necessarily something to be translated. For example, if a document describing an image is being translated, it might be useful to the translator and reviewer to have a copy of that image available for reference.
Accessing Reference Materials
Accessing Reference Materials in Lilt
Reference materials are project specific. To see the reference material for a project, navigate to the project, and then select Reference Materials from the sidebar. Any reference materials that have been uploaded will be shown.
It is also possible to filter reference materials by label.
Downloading Reference Materials
If need be, users can download reference material by clicking on the Download Document button.
Managing Reference Materials
Uploading Reference Materials
Any user with write permissions (see article on RBAC) can upload reference material from their device. To add new reference materials, click on the upload button, and select the files you wish to upload. There is no file size limit, but it is advised to have uploads exceeding 1 GB in size in a zipped folder.
Labelling Reference Materials
If a project has many reference documents, labelling them can be a useful way to efficiently organize them. To label a document, simply click on the Label icon on the right side, and select the labels to be applied.
Deleting Reference Materials
If a piece of reference material should no longer be accessed, it can be deleted by clicking the Delete icon on the right side, and confirming the choice. This will remove it from the project’s reference material for all users.
