Notification events

In My Account > Notifications, you can customize the events for which you want to receive an email notification.


The list presented for each user is ruled by the access rights. As a result, different user profiles will have more or less items or greyed out options, depending on their profile configurations. Learn more about access rights in the Settings.

Manage notifications for yourself or other users

Each user profile has their own set of notifications, which can be individually configured to suit their needs. Depending on access rights, users will also be able to configure or preset the notifications for other users in the system (which could be handy when on-boarding a new client or supplier in the platform, so that they receive the relevant information on their mail boxes). Moreover, you can avoid sending some notifications if you know users are actively working in the Wordbee Translator platform.


Global notifications such as Editor notifications and Job-notifications, will always be sent to the users involved.

Event types and categories

Below you can find an example of the notifications available for internal users divided in three categories: Orders, Jobs and Notes. When you Edit the notifications panel of a user, each category will display the full list of events. Administrator users will be able to customize the text for each of these events in the General Settings of the platform, to learn more see Email Notifications.

Subscriber option

Per each category, notifications can be personalized at Personal level, but also at Company or Platform level if your access right enables you to.
