To better engage your audience with multilingual content, Sitefinity has made it easy to manage multilingual sites by automating and simplifying the content translation process.
So if you are willing to implement new features to your business website, then I have an update for you!
Sitefinity version 8.1 has introduced a translation module that allows you to integrate your site with third party translation services.
How does Sitefinity Translation Module Work?
As per Telerik, choosing Sitefinity development as your CMS platform will help you to avail any third party translation service or you can even use the CMS’s default that integrates with Lionbridge Freeway, a translation management portal vial Clay Tablet Technologies. Clay Tablet doesn’t do the content translation, but it assists the translation process and acts as a broker between the translation agencies and the Sitefinity CMS.
This helps to reduce the turnaround time by at least 60% as it eliminates the manual process and the requirement to develop custom integrations with different translation agencies. Sitefinity provides an API that helps website developers to create this custom integration easily.
Based on Your Third Party Agency, You Can:
- Integrate with the agency directly or via its FTP
- You can also export or import content by using the XLIFF file format and this is supported by most translation service providers.
- Manage errors, revisions and etc with the agency
- Review the status of the translated content in the module
- Preview the content before making it live
Choosing Sitefinity for Multilingual website helps you to simplify the translation management process that eliminates the parts that are time consuming, tedious, inefficient and of course prone to human error.
Thus to conclude, I can state that the latest version of Sitefinity combines the flexible technology approach by allowing you to integrate with third party translation vendors and enabling companies to deliver local relevance on a global scale.
