Step 3. Monitor and track progress without leaving your Content Management System (CMS).
After content has been submitted, the Smartling Submissions Board will display a progress indicator for each language. You have the flexibility to add additional languages, make changes to the content, filter and search content by type and keywords, and check the status of selected items.
