Importing a Translation Job

2. Importing languages separately

When a Translation Job is submitted, the connector creates a "Translation Task" entity per each target language. This allows each language to have it's own translation status.
This allows you to Import each language separately if required.
    When a language is delivered back, the Translation Task status for that language will be "Ready for download"
    You will find the Translation Tasks as child links to the Translation Job.
    Open the Translation Job and select the Includes tab. Under Translation Tasks select the target language task that you wish to Import.
Translation Tasks included in a Translation job
    Select the Details tab and select the Import language radio button.
    Click Save.
Importing a language
    The language (Translation Task) you selected will now have a status of Imported.
    If there were other languages that have not yet been Imported then the Translation Job status will remain as Job ready for import until all languages are imported.
    The Entity(s) Status will remain as In translation until all languages have been Imported, then the status will be updated to Translated.
