The document actions available on each document card in Lilt are quick and easy access to best facilitate the entire translation process for both project managers and linguists.
This article goes over the actions you can perform on single documents. To see how to perform actions on multiple documents at once, see the Bulk Document Actions article.
Clicking on the name of a document brings you to the document Editor with either the translator or reviewer interface (depending on your role).
Click on any of the four action buttons to perform one of the following actions on the document:
- Translate: Brings you to the editor with the translator interface.
- Review: Brings you to the editor with the reviewer interface.
- Assign: Allows you to assign a translator or reviewer to the document. This is explained further in the sections below.
- Document options: Allows you to choose from several additional document actions: Pretranslate, download, download TXT, download XLIFF, and delete. These are explained further in the sections below.
The circular progress bar next to each document indicates how much of the document has been translated (gray bar) and how much of the document has been reviewed (green bar).
To upload documents to a Project, drag and drop the files into the box at the top of the screen, or click the
Import button to browse for files on your computer. You can also drag and drop a folder of documents into the box to upload all the files in the folder at once.
Click on the
Expand button on a document to open up a detailed view of the document.
Alternatively, you can click on the
Expand All Document Details button to expand the details for all documents within the project.
Assigning document tasks
Once a document has been uploaded, project managers can assign a translator or reviewer to the document by clicking the assign button . You can also optionally set due dates for translators and reviewers. Once you have selected a translator or reviewer, clicking the
Assign button will assign them to the document, and they will be sent an email from email@example.com letting them know they have been assigned. Then the linguists can accept or reject the assignment.
When both a translator and reviewer are assigned to a document, you will see a checkmark next to the document.

Reviewer filters let you display documents based on various translation and review statuses. If any translators or reviewers are assigned to documents in the project, their emails will show up in the filter lists.
The sort option gives you several methods to sort the documents within a project. By default, documents are sorted by name.
Once you have selected the sorting method, you can click the sort order button next to the sort list to change the sort order between ascending and descending.
