The 2 types of extraction on Codex

During the upload of your file, you should have chosen whether you wanted it to be imported via script or via the manual interface, also called front selector.

  • If you have selected the first way, your file will be imported into tasks in the following minutes. You can find some more information about Codex profiles here.

  • But if you have selected the manual interface, you will need to select the content to be sent to translation manually via the front selector. You will find anything you need to know about this method here.
