How Figma Translation Works with Smartling
You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers.
- What happens if I resubmit the same file with new content?Smartling will only translate the new content.
- What type of translation do I use to get an idea for what a localized design will look like?Use pseudo translation. It’s instant, free and gives you enough visibility into what the experience will look like in other languages.
- Our designers are already too busy. Why should I add this to their plate?Ask them if they’ve ever had to redesign the digital experience because of a translation issue that presented itself later in the process. If the answer is “yes,” then you will have answered your question.
- Should I use human translation from the design stage?The most agile localization programs start by translating the content as designers are building the end-user experience. Changes to content in the design phase are typically minimal, so start using human translation as soon as you believe the content is finished or close to finished, even if the designs are not. And remember, if the content does change, you will be able to leverage translation memory to offset any additional costs incurred with translating new content.
