Quotum info

When you buy a clone with translation from us, that translation usually has a maximum of 2 million characters. Under "Quotum Info" you can see exactly how many characters you have already used this month. In other words, here you can see how much has already been translated by Clonable this month. It could be that you have exceeded your limit, causing Clonable to stop translating, leading to some parts of the text on your website not being translated. Fortunately, you can always buy extra characters. Under 'Extra bundles' and 'Overuse' you can see how many extra bundles you have bought, and if there is overuse.


Additional characters

If you don't have enough characters you can buy them here. You can opt for a one-time purchase of a number of characters (One-time bundles) or you can set a limit. By setting a limit, you don't have to buy characters manually everytime you need them. Instead, they will be bought automatically everytime you exceed the maximum number of characters. With the limit, you indicate the maximum of costs you want to make for extra characters per month, should this be necessary.
