How Does the Translation Connector for Drupal Work?

 

Step 1. Submit content for translation.
Whether you are translating individual pieces, or managing large amount of content at once, the powerful platform is able to detect and handle any Drupal nodes or field types. Access detailed information for every item, including the publication status, when the item was last updated, and a list of current languages. Select your target languages and send to Smartling with one click.

Step 2. Translate your content leveraging Smartling’s automated processes.
Smartling’s Translation Management Platform gives you complete transparency into time and cost, with real-time reporting and analytics long before the job is complete, allowing you to analyze process efficiencies and, over time, improve your translation process.

Step 3. Monitor and track progress without leaving your Content Management System (CMS).
After content has been submitted, the Smartling Submissions Page will display a progress indicator for each language. You can add additional languages, make changes to the content, filter and search content by type and keywords, and check the status of selected items.

Step 4. Get translated content back and publish.
Once the content is translated, reviewed and approved, automatically publish the translations to Drupal. No copy-paste required, which gives you more time to focus on other tasks at hand.
