The Translation Connector for Marketo

Smartling’s integration with Marketo is easily configured with no developer support required and quickly extends Marketo with automated capabilities to submit and manage content for translation by your preferred translation vendor. The translation connector is managed from within your Smartling account, so translation vendors can access your content for localization without requiring direct access to Marketo. This integration will automatically handle the import and export of content, removing the need for copy and paste to manage your localized campaigns.
