Order templates are ideal if you’re not the only one at your organisation that’s placing frequent repeat orders of the same source languagetarget language(s)service level and subject matters. Order templates will fill out your order forms with the click of a button, you can have multiple order templates set up with different settings, and order templates can be shared among multiple users and teams.

If you want to set up default ordering settings that are specific to you, please read our support page on defaults.

Order templates

Order templates can be selected every time you place an order and are great if you order a variety of consistent orders, for example if you’re regularly placing orders for both your EMEA and your APAC markets and they both require different languages and order settings.

Order templates are a great way to ensure your orders are consistent, especially where users may be less familiar with the translation process or the specific languages and variations that you translate into.

Order templates can populate the order form with:

  • Source language – ensuring that you use the correct language variation such as English US instead of English UK
  • Target language(s) – meaning that your users don’t need to remember the 17 languages and variations that you translate into and won’t forget when you expand into new markets and add three more languages
  • Service level – making sure that your users remember to order On-Brand for your marketing content and Professional Translation for your internal content
  • The Order name – reminding users of your consistent approach to naming your orders to make projects easy to find for all of your team
  • The Subject Matter – to ensure that your content is placed for translation with translators with the right knowledge and experience
  • Instructions – easily cascade consistent instructions to every order without having to retype or copy and paste them
  • Invoice email – ensuring that each departments’ order invoices are sent to the correct email address
  • Users to notify – notify the relevant team members about each and every order supporting your business processes and shared responsibility approaches
  • Tags – apply your tags to each and every order to support your project search and spend analysis.

On this page we’ll look at how to:

Create an order template

    Note: you can leave fields blank if you would like to set them manually on each order.
  3. Select if you would like your template Shared with Organisation or Shared with Teams (if sharing with teams you will need to select to specify which team(s)), alternatively leave this blank if you will be the only person to use your template.
  4. Select Save.

When customising your order templates, you can edit the settings for:

  • Source language – This is the language that you translate from, ensure you select the correct variation for your content, for example ‘English US’ instead of ‘English UK’.
  • Target language(s) -These are the language(s) that you translate into, again ensure you select the correct variation for your content e.g. ‘French France’ or ‘French Canada’.
  • Service level – This is the level of service that is required for the order dependent on your quality requirements. Order name – This pre-fills every order name and can be used where orders follow a consistent naming pattern.
  • Subject Matter – This is the subject matter of the content and is used to ensure your content is placed for translation with translators with the right knowledge and experience.
  • Instructions – This can be used to cascade consistent instructions to every order without having to retype or copy and paste them.
  • Invoice email – This is the email address that the invoice email for the order is sent to.
  • Users to notify – Allows you to choose who should be sent any system emails so you can notify all relevant team members about each and every order supporting your business processes and shared responsibility approaches.
