Integrated workflows

Integrated workflows

Is your company’s marketing team still ordering translations manually, or are your communication project officers still copying and pasting strings of code from content systems into Microsoft Word or Excel files to send for translation? If so, it’s time to leave the past behind. Because the days of highly inefficient, manual file transfer are gone.

To compete globally, you need to automate and streamline multilingual translation workflows. How? By integrating your content management system (CMS) with a translation management system (TMS) — with a robust CMS integration solution.

What is Content Management System integration?

Our integration technologies enable you to connect your CMS to our translation management system to streamline your translation management workflows. By connecting with our translation management system you bypass the standard file transfer process and email communication which add up to your workload and increase the margin of error.

Our technologies use connectors that link your platform to ours, so you can send your files straight from your content management system for translation or via the 2M connector's user interface. Your translated files are then returned to you triggering a notification prompting you to publish or push live the translations.

Our 2M connectors currently support the following CMS: WordPress, Sharepoint. We can also connect with Adobe Experience Manager, Drupal, Sitecore, Episerver, DNN, Umbraco. If you are using a different CMS and wish to integrate with us, please contact us to find out if your CMS is eligible for integration with our translation management system.

Simplify translation management and increase control with automated workflows

Our connector automates source and target language file transfers from and to your content management system. You can manage translation workflows from our connector user interface, or directly within your CMS depending on which system you are using. This allows you to streamline content updates across multiple languages and for various markets.

Our integration comes with an integrated dashboard that allows you to monitor the translation advancement status for more control over the process.

Eliminate manual processes to boost efficiencies, minimise errors and reduce time to market for your content

Save time and speed up project turnaround times by avoiding time-consuming copy & paste of strings of text to Word or Excel files. Bypass this error-prone process with CMS integration and save time on email communication or file transfer. On our end, we receive a translation-ready file which allows us to complete the job more quickly and efficiently.

The connector enables you to review and publish the translated file in the right location within your CMS allowing you once again to save time. Our integration coupled with automation allows you to drastically speed up the time to market of your content for a more consistent global experience.

Ensure translation quality and improve customer experience

Because our translators and in-country reviewers can preview the translated content in its source format context, they can translate and assess more effectively locale-specific messaging intent, language authenticity and cultural appropriateness. This process allows consistent brand messaging, relevant content and a better customer experience.

Amplify customer engagement by publishing simultaneously across multiple markets

The highly optimised workflow will give the opportunity to reinforce your message's impact by broadcasting content concurrently across multiple locations, languages and platforms. You can increase your customer engagement by extending your messaging to more international markets, global customers and prospects.
