Settings Job Name Templates

Job Name Templates are used to create custom file names for your translation jobs.

Configure the Job Name Templates to use the information that best meets the requirements of each service provider you use. When the job file is created a name is automatically added to the file using the variables that have been specified in the Template field.

Important: Each job name template must be unique. If the template you create is not unique, then JobId and Locale will be added when the job is created.

Sys Locale Code

The target locale code (language plus country), eg, en_US

Sys Locale ID
