Smartling Launches Sitecore Translation Connector for Customer Experience Management across the Globe

Sitecore users can better drive global growth with high-quality multilingual content and localized customer experiences through Smartling’s enterprise cloud translation platform.

NEW YORK – August 5, 2015 – Smartling today announced the availability of its Translation Connector for Sitecore. Thanks to this integration, Sitecore users can seamlessly connect to Smartling’s cloud-based translation management system from within Sitecore to easily and cost-effectively create and manage multilingual content and localize customer experiences. The Sitecore Connector is the latest demonstration of Smartling’s commitment to providing its enterprise customers with the most advanced and open cloud platform for translation management available, and further expands Smartling’s broad Connector ecosystem.

Smartling’s comprehensive Translation Connector for Sitecore fully supports translation in Sitecore versions 6.2 and above. The Connector is easily installed with minimal developer support and quickly extends the Sitecore platform with automated capabilities to submit and manage content for translation by any preferred translation vendor. The result is high-quality multilingual content and localized digital experiences that improve customer acquisition and retention while driving global growth.

“The ability to deliver high quality localized content is vital to any company’s global growth strategy,” said Andrew Saxe, Senior Director of Product at Smartling. “With this new Connector, Sitecore customers can facilitate and manage localized content from directly within the Sitecore application.”

As a Silver Member of the Sitecore Technology Partner Program, Smartling joins an elite group of partners that extend and enhance the capabilities of their award winning customer experience management platform.  With the Sitecore Connector configured with Smartling’s Enterprise TMS, users can translate and manage content on an item-by-item basis, in batch mode, or automatically whenever new content or changes are published. Regardless of how the content is submitted, resulting translations are returned automatically when completed and approved, saving staff time and eliminating the errors caused by manual copying and pasting.

The Smartling Translation Connector for Sitecore provides powerful translation functionality never before available:

  • Automation – Changes to content are detected automatically, and translations are returned to Sitecore when complete. Users can focus on creating new content, and the platform will keep multilingual versions in sync.
  • Efficiency – Translation Memory integration leverages previous translations to boost quality and speed, maintain consistency, all while reducing translation costs.
  • High-quality – Smartling’s unique “in-context” translation interface provides translation resources with full visibility into site design and layout during the entire translation process. Translations are accurate for meaning and format the first time, reducing time consuming edits and fixes to your multilingual content.
  • Real-time visibility – Translation progress data is available directly in the Sitecore interface, eliminating the need to switch between multiple systems to monitor project activity.

Smartling empowers businesses to better compete globally by removing complexity, cost and time from the translation process. With Smartling, businesses can leverage human translators for the highest-quality multilingual content while automating the non-linguistic parts of the process, enabling them to penetrate new markets faster, more efficiently and more affordably than ever before. Hundreds of global companies rely on Smartling to translate and localize their websites, Web apps, mobile apps and other digital content in a fraction of the time and cost compared to traditional translation processes.
