How Does the Translation Connector for Magento Work?


Step 1. Submit content for translation.
Whether you are translating individual pieces, or managing large amounts of content at once, the powerful platform is able to detect and handle page layouts, blog posts, categories and tags. Access detailed information for every item under a content type, including the publication status, when the item was last updated, and a list of current translation locales. Select all target languages as you want translated and send to Smartling with one click.

Step 2. Translate your content leveraging the Global Fluency Platform’s automated processes.
Smartling’s Global Fluency Platform gives you complete transparency into spend with real-time reporting and analytics well before the job is complete, which allows you to analyze process efficiencies in time and spend, and over time improve your translation process.

Step 3. Monitor and track progress.
After content has been submitted, the Smartling Widget will display a progress indicator for each language. You have the flexibility to 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 WordPress. No copy-paste required, which gives you more time to focus on other tasks at hand.
