Canceling translation jobs

In Nativy, we are creating a separate project for each language pair, therefore, you can delete an entire project from Nativy by logging to your Nativy account.

NOTICE: Be aware that cancellation requests for previously submitted work should be sent as soon as possible, as Nativy cannot cancel translation work that has already been completed. Unless your commercial terms state otherwise, you will be charged for the work completed.

Having your canceled translations returned to your site

When a project is canceled, information will be returned to your site after you have manually checked for canceled translations. First, click the Synchronize translations button and after a few seconds/minutes (depending on the amount of content), click the Check status and get translations button on the Translation Management Dashboard.
