You can send translated content to individuals for review. For example, you might use this feature if you are an author who has received files back from a translator and you want to send them to a third party (who does not have access to Lingo) to ensure the translations are correct. When you use this feature, you can export translations as a MadCap Contributor review package.
Before you send a Contributor review package to a reviewer, be sure the reviewer has the latest version of Contributor installed. Reviewers do not need to purchase a license to use Contributor review Lingo files; instead, they can use Contributor's free review mode to review Lingo files.
