Smartling Partners With Sanity.io to Enable Powerful Translation and Turn-key Localization for Digital Experiences

Global initiatives can be seamlessly scaled from one language into any other without the traditional overhead associated with language translation

Publicity

NEW YORK, NY - July 7, 2021 - Smartling, the leading cloud translation technology company, today introduced a translation integration with Sanity.io, the platform for structured content that powers exceptional digital experiences. The new connector offers Sanity customers a robust solution for delivering fully localized audience engagement across content types and devices with Smartling.

Global content management is increasingly important as the need to engage worldwide users has become a priority across the enterprise. Personalization is a key way to maximize engagement, but it’s hard to do since there are so many languages and channels. It takes 45 languages to reach 95% of the world’s GDP, and if experiences aren't localized across all the various channels your audiences use, engagement suffers. Smartling's Sanity Connector gives customers the ability to easily scale across languages and digital channels to increase content velocity, and access to fully integrated professional language services that customers can leverage to get their product into the market without the overhead of people and time. Sanity provides the content platform that treats content as data so you can flow translated content over APIs and reuse it across channels, devices, and products to build the best experiences possible.

“Our customers operate globally and need scalable ways to localize digital experiences to their audiences, which is why we’re really excited to have Smartling as a partner to provide that solution out of the box,” said Even Westvang, Co-founder, Marketing & Growth at Sanity.

“Our solution enables a fully autonomous translation workflow and translation management system to easily scale digital experiences for any market” said Andrew Saxe, VP of Product at Smartling. “Our integrated translation services complement software automation with enterprise-grade content localization, enabling Sanity customers to translate with confidence.”

The integration can be installed within minutes, positioning mutual customers to get started quickly and scale their digital experiences faster than ever before. Customers can introduce a high degree of customization in the set up of their tools, or use pre-configured settings to get started. As an example, Smartling can be configured to detect new content or changes to the source content in Sanity, reuse translations across channels, and match content with the appropriate translator to fit budget and language requirements.
