Translation Workflow Engine
What Is a Workflow Engine?
Workflow Engine is a unique feature within the Smartling Translation Management System (TMS) that enables you to create custom translation workflows to streamline translation review processes and meet the specific needs of your projects. With the ability to configure the order in which content moves through the workflow, set up automatic alerts, and manage which users can complete each step, project owners have total control. Workflows can be created for individual projects or at the account level, meaning you only need to assign resources once to give them access to all projects within your account.
Workflow Engine offers project owners special functionality:
Distribute content to the right resource, and ensure appropriate allocation amongst your translation team
Ensure appropriate review cycles are met by pausing the flow of content until all stakeholders approve
Avoid bottlenecks by submitting strings to the next workflow step automatically for pre-publishing
Ultimately, all strings are processed through a workflow that begins with a translation step, and ends with a published step. Workflows can be created for individual projects or at the account level, meaning you only need to assign resources once to give them access to all projects within your account.
Project Owners Have Total Control
Configure the order in which content moves through the workflow
Set up automatic alerts to notify team resources
Manage which users can complete each step
Workflow Engine offers project owners options and flexibility when managing multiple translation projects. Project owners can add, remove, rearrange, or automate any number of revision steps within the workflow for editing, internal review, external review, and approvals. Ultimately, this helps to accelerate project completion by streamlining all of the steps between content upload and publication.
