This article walks you through getting started with creating a project and uploading documents to the project.
Create a new project
Under the Projects tab, click on the New Project button. This will bring up a form that walks you through creating the initial project settings.
Describe the project
Setting a Project Title and Languages are both required when creating a new project. Setting a Deadline for the project is optional. The project title and deadline can be changed later on in the Project Settings, but the language pairs cannot be changed once the project is created.
Assign a project memory
Assigning a Memory is required to create a new project. You can either select an existing Memory or create a new Memory. If you select from existing Memories, you can either use the default Memories built into Lilt for each language pair, or you can use one of your own Memories on Lilt. Once the project is created, the associated Memory cannot be changed.
After selecting a Memory, you can optionally adjust the Review Sampling Settings:
- Review sample rate: By default, this is set to match the default review sample rate in the Organization Settings.
- Exclude exact matches: This is disabled by default.
After the project is created, these option can be changed at any time in the Project Settings.
Finalize project creation
After clicking the Create button, the project will be created, and you will see that it has been added as a card to the Kanban board under the Ready To Start column.
Once the project is created, if you need to change the project's languages or Memory, you can delete the project and create a new project.
Once a project has been created, click on the project card to open up the project view. By default, opening a project will load into the Documents page (the first page on the left sidebar).
Under the Documents page, project managers can upload documents by drag and drop files into the file box area or by clicking the Import button to browse files on the computer.
See the Supported File Formats article for a full list of file formats that Lilt supports.
