Usage of the Asynchronous File Translation API
In order to better process translation batches with a large number of files, the asynchronous mode of the API is used.
The asynchronous mode helps to avoid losing the connection, avoid timeouts, and also enable to better manage the load on the Server side. The server returns a response as soon as the request is accepted. QFT can continue initiating other requests while the first translation is being executed. In asynchronous mode you can also see the progress of the translation:
Note: If the server does not support the asynchronous mode, the translation is made in synchronous mode and the progress of the translation is not shown:
In synchronous mode, QFT waits while the request is being processed and is blocked from making other requests until the server sends a completion response.
