Documentation on how to translate software with POEditor

The Account Settings are divided into four sections: Profile, API Access, Integrations and Logs.


In the Profile tab, you can edit your profile details (the name and web address).

Profile (Account Settings) - POEditor Localization Platform

Some numbers about your account are also available here: the number of strings currently hosted and the number of characters you have left to use with the Automatic Translation feature.

You can change your password following the Change Password link at the bottom of the page and filling in the details in the form.

If you want to change your email address, you should follow the steps here.

In the Profile tab, you can also change the settings for some account-level features: Translation Memory Access - grant access to administrators and/or contributors to load in your projects translations stored in your account's Translation Memory by turning the switches to YES.
TM Suggestions - enable them if you want the Translation Memory to show translation suggestions in your project's language pages.
Notification Bubbles - turn these to ON to have translators notified in the interface about translation aspects (such as, when they exceed twice the length of the initial string).
Notifications on Comments - lets you choose if and how often you wish to be notified via email when someone comments on a string.

API Access

In the API Access tab, you can generate, view and regenerate your API token. Also, you can lock the API.

API (Account Settings) - POEditor translation management platform

A list of your project ids and language codes is also available, to use with the API.


POEditor is integrated with a number of services, which are listed in the Integrations tab: GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, Azure DevOps, WordPress and Slack.

Each POEditor account has three logs - a general Activity Log, an API Log and a Webhooks Log.

Most events in the Activity Log are stored for 15 days, but events related to the deletion of data is stored for 30. The Webhooks Log stores for 30 days all account requests, while the API Log stores for 15 days all the account requests.

POEditor uses UTC to express the time when an event took place.
