LanguageWire’s APIs and connectors are a time- and effort-saving solution, helping you avoid copying text unnecessarily from one place to another and import any changes, no matter how big or small, to all language versions of your website in almost real time.
A connector is a kind of system integration that allows the customer to order a translation of the content through an existing publishing system. In practice, a customer who uses a publishing system to process their website content can use our connector to order website translations from within their content management system. Once the translations are ready, they are imported into the system as localised copies of the original page.
We have listed five key reasons why integration is a good idea.
1. Work in a familiar publishing system
LanguageWire connectors and custom API work with your CMS, PIM or DAM. You can order translations and track the progress of projects directly through the digital platform you are already using.
Integration can be built with nearly any generally used content management system. We have Adobe, Drupal, inRiver, Optimizely, Sitecore, TYPO3, Umbraco and WordPress connectors – and many others! If you didn’t find an option suitable for your platform among our connectors, you can use our API to create a custom integration between your digital platform and LanguageWire.
2. Automate your translation management process
Copying source texts from websites and emailing them to be translated is a time-consuming process. A smarter and more efficient way to manage large volumes of website content and numerous language versions is to integrate the systems so that the process for managing the translations is as highly automated as possible. Managing online store product information in different language versions, for instance, is much easier when the processed are automated.
LanguageWire’s APIs and connectors make full automation of the process possible. Simply connect your application to a tech-enabled translation management tool, and your translations can be imported directly from the translator to the page.
3. Save time and reduce workload
By using integration, you can publish content in every language as simply as in one. Integration is a better option than time-consuming manual work, and you receive ready translations right into your own publishing system. Managing translation orders is quick and easy with a user-friendly interface. This allows you to save time and money and, above all, gain additional peace of mind when the most monotonous part in the language version release process can be eliminated. With aid of a connector, you can import any changes, no matter how big or small, to all language versions of your website or webstore in almost real time.
4. Minimise risks
Furthermore, the likelihood of making mistakes increases when a large number of files are sent back and forth, with internal editors’ modification proposals. With LanguageWire, you don’t need to make any compromises on security. HTTPS-encrypted transfer of data increases security and you can manage the integration between LanguageWire and your system with modern access control.
Our APIs are built to be very stable so you don’t lose any jobs or complete translations in the event of a network outage. With integration, you can send texts for translation securely without a flood of emails and a need to worry about human errors.
5. Higher translation quality
We work as an extension of your business by building a permanent team of project managers, linguists and engineers. By connecting your digital platform to LanguageWire’s system, you will have access to our network of over 7,000 language experts.
