Configuring Custom Content Types

When you send content for translation using the Bulk Translation wizard, the Translation Queue, or Sidekick you can use the content type to filter the content you want to send.

Note: Specifying the content type in Sidekick is available only when working with the Sidekick wizard user interfaces.

The Connector can also configure routing rules to send content of each type to a different translation provider.

By default, the Connector includes three content types, which have the following default labels:

  • Marketing
  • Technical
  • Legal

You can change these labels to reflect your company’s needs. For example, you can send all your marketing content to your translation provider, and all your user-generated content to a machine translation service. In the Content API Platform, the Connector can configure content rules based on content types as follows:

  • You can send different content types to different translation providers.
  • You can send different content types to different TMSs (translation management systems).
  • You can send different content types to different processing profiles within a single TMS instance.

Note: Please contact Lionbridge Connector Support before proceeding. For details, see How to Contact Lionbridge Connector Support.
