You will have received a system administrator account for your Globalese system. If you have colleagues, clients or other stakeholders who also need access to Globalese, create user accounts for them before moving on.

Make sure you only allow access for a user to their relevant groups. Moreover, you can restrict what each user can do in a group.


Do you have a memoQ, Memsource, SmartCAT or XTM server where you store projects? Do you want Globalese to reach out to these servers, pull files for pre-translation and push the files back?

Set up the connector(s) to the particular server(s), so you can easily pull and push files between memoQ, Memsource, SmartCAT or XTM. You can also use the connectors to import translation memories for building engines, and pull term bases from memoQ and Memsource.

If you want to use the plugins available in Memsource, memoQ, SDL Trados Studio, Wordbee or translate5, you can skip this step.


Before you can train your first Globalese engine, you need corpora. You can upload corpora in various file formats, or import them using one of the CAT server connectors.

If you don’t have the required minimum volume of corpora, you can also leverage stock corpora provided by Globalese. However, it is always recommended to throw your own specific corpus into the mix for increased quality.


Once you have uploaded enough corpora to the system, you can create and train your first Globalese engine.

When creating an engine, you simply tell Globalese what corpora to build the engine from. When training an engine, Globalese starts the learning process from those corpora.


Once you have your first engine trained, you are ready to translate files with Globalese.

Create a project, upload some files, or import them from a CAT server project (provided you have a connector set up already), and translate them with one of your trained engines.

If you are using a CAT tool that already has a plugin for Globalese, you don’t need to create projects and upload files to Globalese — your CAT tool will do all of that for you.
