Autofill Settings are easily accessible via Project Preferences submenu, under Translation Tools.

This section explains how the Autofill feature connects to the Machine Translation.

Autofill empty segments with Machine Translation

If you tick the checkbox all empty segments will be autofilled with Machine Translation after activation.


Only empty text segments can be autofilled.
The status of the segment doesn’t matter,
but it needs to be empty to be autofilled if the rules you specified apply.

Autofill doesn’t automatically apply for the text segments created in the past. This means that empty text segments are autofilled if autofill is triggered.

Autofill is always triggered if: 

  • You add a new project locale (=language) to your project. All empty text segments will be autofilled from Machine Translation OR
  • A new empty text segment(s) is created. New Text Segment(s) can be created by uploading a file or creating a new text segment in the Online Editor OR
  • You edit the source text and no target text has been specified. Changes in your source text need to be saved so that autofill is triggered.
