Documentation on how to translate software with POEditor

Whenever you need to interrupt a localization process, for whatever reason, or just to switch to a subscription with fewer strings, you can simply downgrade your POEditor acccount.

How do I downgrade an account?

Just go to the Billing section in your account and, in the Your Plan tab, click the link that says Downgrade, next to the Upgrade button. If you do not have a paid plan, you will not see that link.

Will the downgrade take effect immediately?

The account's string limit will be decreased after the last day of your paid subcription is over.

What exactly happens to my data when I downgrade?

Nothing. Your localization projects will remain untouched, with all the translated strings and contributors. Please note that, if the number of strings in your accout exceeds the new string limit, you won't be able to add more strings to the localization project. Otherwise, you'll be able to resume the localization workflow whenever you want.
