Monolingual Preview is a feature of Lilt Translate that allows linguists to preview all confirmed or accepted segments of a document as formatted text. This allows linguists to quickly check for and fix formatting issues. It also allows linguists to view the target text in the context of its neighboring segments without the accompanying source text.

Watch this video to get an overview of how Monolingual Preview works:
