Search Filters - How to easily find a translation?

In this article, you'll see how to apply filters to your Translation List in order to easily find a translation

Once you are on your Translation List,  there are different kinds of filters that you can use:

1. The Search bar

The simplest way to find a translation is to enter the text in the Search bar of the Translation List:

You will then see all the translations containing the words you searched for.

You can also click on the icon of the magnifying glass in the search bar to use the "Exact Search":

With it, you won't see all translations containing the string you searched, but only translations that match exactly with it (it is also case sensitive).

2. The "Type, "Quality", "Status" and "Assigned to" filters

When you select a language pair, you can see the filter button on the right side:

Using it, you'll be able to choose its type:

  • By selecting Text, your text translations will be displayed
  • By selecting Meta (SEO), your meta descriptions, titles, and image alt attributes will be displayed
  • By selecting Media, your media URLs will be displayed
  • By selecting External Links, your External Link URLs will be displayed

You can use the quality filter in order to only display your automatic, manual or professional translations.

You can also use the Status filter to only display the active translations for example.

Finally, the last filter is the "Assigned to": with it, you can select only translations that have been assigned to a specific member of your project team, if you have any.

Please note that you can select different filters at the same time: for example, you can check "Text", "Manual" and "Active" to see all the manually edited translations that are active with the type "Text".

3. Sorting translations by date

On the right side, you can see the "Default" sorting, you can click on it:

You can then choose between:

  • Sorting by "Creation date" : it will sort translations based on their creation date
  • Sorting by "Last seen date": it will sort translations based on the last time they were seen on the translated version of your site
  • Sorting the "Default" way, which is displaying your translations from most recent to oldest, based on a mix between the Creation Date and the Last Seen date

Once you have selected the sort, you can also sort in Ascending or Descending order by clicking on the arrow.

Don't hesitate to check the details of your translations, you'll see the exact creation date and the "last seen" date:

Then you should see a side panel with different tabs, click on "Information":

4. The URL filter

You also have the possibility to filter your translation depending on the URLs:

When you select a specific URL, it will show you all the translations associated with that page

Please note that each translation is linked to one URL. If you have the same content displayed on several pages, it will be linked to the shortest URL
