What is LingoHub's Autofill feature?

Autofill is a great way to accelerate your translation process and to stay consistent in your style. This allows you to share texts across different languages and dialects. 

You can use the Autofill tool to fill up empty text segments with matching texts from your Translation Memory and/or Machine Translation

Accessing Project's Autofill Settings

Autofill Settings are easy to access. 

  1. Select the Project you want to activate the Autofill feature for
  2. Select the Project Preferences in the submenu
  3. Click on the Translation Tools link
  4. Activate Autofill from Translation Memory and/or Machine Translation and define preferences for each. 
  5. Changes are automatically saved

If activated, LingoHub will check empty text segments of the specified project and automatically copy the text from the selected Translation Memory (or Machine Translation).
