  • In the new Skip Translation with Local TM section of the Advanced Settings page, you can configure which components or property names of components will be ignored by the local TM (translation memory) when users send content for translation with the Use Local TM option. This setting prevents the Connector from using any previous translations of the specified components that are stored in the local TM.
  • The Connector no longer supports versions 6.0 and 6.1 of Adobe Experience Manager.
  • The Disable default language mapping (6.1+) option in the UI and Default Settings section of the Configuration page has been renamed to Disable default language mapping, because it is now relevant for all supported versions of Adobe Experience Manager.
Issues Fixed in This Release
Issue ID Description
258722 When using the Connector with AEM 6.4 or 6.5, the Update, Delete, and Close buttons in the LSP & Keys page were not displayed properly. The introduction of the new New Provider and Edit Provider dialog boxes have resolved these issue.
258723 Previously, in JSON-structured content, some Unicode characters that were escaped in the translation XML file were displayed in the translated content. This issue has been resolved.
258724 Previously, custom languages and codes were not displayed in the Language Mapping page. This issue has been resolved.
258725 In version 4.0.0 of the Connector, after clicking Delete for a license key in the LSP and License Keys section of the LSP & Keys page, the license key was not immediately released by the Clay Tablet Platform, and it was not available for re-installation. This issue has been resolved. Clicking Delete for a license key now immediately causes the Clay Tablet Platform to release it and make it available for re-installation.
258727 Previously, when some encoded content was translated to Chinese, question marks ( ? ) were returned in the translated content. This issue has been resolved. All translated content is now encoded to Base64 before it is saved to the Connector database, which prevents this situation from recurring.
258728 Previously, when the Connector imported a .CSV file to the Component Mapping page, it did not recognize that the first row was a header and not actual data, so it imported all fields as data. This issue has been resolved. The Connector now recognizes both ComponentPath and PropertyName as headers. For more information about supported elements of an imported .CSV file, refer to the Lionbridge Connector for Adobe Experience Manager Installation Configuration Guide.
258729 Version 4.0.0 of the Connector did not support sending out content for translation from version 6.5 of the Adobe Experience Manager Sidekick, and an error message was displayed. This issue has been resolved.
258731 Version 4.0.0 of the Connector required connecting to the new Clay Tablet license server, which did not support the preemptive authentication required by some proxy servers. This issue has been resolved. The new Clay Tablet license server now supports preemptive authentication.
258733 After version 4.0.0 of the Connector was installed on Adobe Experience Manager version 6.5, adaptive-form fragments were not editable in the Touch UI, and error messages were displayed. This issue has been resolved.
258734 In version 4.0.0 of the Connector, if JCR properties were specified in the Metadata Configuration section of the Advanced Settings page, then the metadata was not translated, and it was overwritten by the source content.

This occurred whether or not the Translate Metadata check box was selected or cleared in the Translation Default Settings sub-section of the UI and Default Settings section in the Configuration page. These issues have been resolved.
276509 Previously, in the Component Mapping page, selecting components and clicking Collect did not collect the selected components and display them in the Collected Possible Property Fields for Translation list. This issue has been resolved.
283028 Previously, the following scenario occurred when using the Lionbridge Translation Connector for Lionbridge Freeway:

You specified analysis codes in Lionbridge Freeway.
You renamed the analysis codes from their default names in Lionbridge Freeway.
* In the Translation Platform section, Freeway Config sub-section of the Configuration page of the Connector, you ​selected only the Require Value 1 check box.

In the LSP page of the Bulk Translation wizard, if Lionbridge Freeway was selected in the Choose LSP box, in the Analysis Code section, the Connector selected the first analysis code in alphabetical order instead of selecting the analysis code originally named Analysis Codes 1. This issue has been resolved

Lionbridge Connector for Adobe Experience Manager Release Notes ver. 4.0.1

  • The header note defines the name of the translation job.
  • The TU note defines the page path and the property name.

It also contains any comments about the translation corrections.

  • You can now see if a job or content items in the job were completed by a redelivery:
  • In the Status tab of the Translation Status page, if a job was redelivered, then the number of times it was delivered is displayed, in the Completed column, in brackets, following the number of pages.
  • In the Details tab of the Translation Status page, if a content item was redelivered, then the number of times it was delivered is displayed, in the Status column, following Completed, in brackets.
  • You can now configure the Connector to submit for translation Content Fragments that are referenced in pages, Experience Fragments, and adaptive forms by selecting the Translate Dependent CF check box in the Translation Settings section of the Configuration page.

  • In the Settings page, the Update only radio buttons have been renamed to Copy source to target only. This is a more accurate of the functionality: The Connector copies the source content to the target content item without sending it out for translation. This is useful when there is content that you do not want to translate, but that you want to include in the target version. Previously this functionality was described incorrect in the user guide.
  • To improve clarity, the following settings were renamed in the Translation Default Settings sub-section of the UI and Default Settings section of the Configuration page and in all user interfaces for submitting content for translation:
  • Translate Fields was renamed to Translate page content.
  • Target pages have content in source language was renamed to Select if using Blueprint/Live-copy.

  • While updating a remote translation memory (TM) for a single page, you can now add a comment for your translator about why you are updating the translation of that page. This feature is available both from the Touch-Optimized UI and the Sidekick.
Issues Fixed in This Release
Issue ID Description
AEM-732 In previous versions of the Connector, some SQL errors occurred because database tables did not include primary keys. This issue has been resolved. All database tables now include primary keys.
AEM-996 In version 3.2.1 of the Connector, if the database server was offline when the Connector was receiving a translated job, then when the database connection was restored, the Connector did not automatically continue receiving the job. This occurred because the Connector deleted the translation from the AWS S3 bucket when it could not find the related translation job in the database. When the database connection was restored and the Connector tried to receive the job again, it could not find the translation in AWS S3.

This issue has been resolved. In the previous scenario, if the database server is offline when a job is submitted for translation, the Connector does not delete the translation from AWS S3. When the database connection is restored, the Connector automatically continues receiving the job because it can locate the translation in AWS S3.
AEM-1008 In versions 3.3.x of the Connector, the Est. Words column in the Job Details tab of the Translation Status page and the Words column in the Translation Queue displayed 0 (zero) as the word count for digital assets. This was misleading. These columns now displays n/a for digital assets.
AEM-1139 Previously, the list of content items in the Translation Queue had the following usability issues:

Only a few items were displayed at one time.
The list was too wide, so that scrolling was required to see all columns.

These issues have been resolved:

The list now displays eight content items without requiring scrolling.
The list is less wide, and you can resize the columns so that they are all displayed without requiring scrolling.
The user interface below the list has been organized into the following three tabs:
Translation Job: This tab has the required fields and buttons for sending out a job for translation.
Reference Files: This tab enables you to attach reference files to your translation job.
Overwrite options: This tab enables you to overwrite translation settings that were specified when the items were originally submitted to the Translation Queue.
AEM-1153 Previously, if there were too many items in the Translation Queue, and too many scheduled jobs for sending out content from the Translation Queue were triggered simultaneously, then some of those jobs were not executed on schedule. Those jobs were executed at the next scheduled time. This issue has been resolved. All jobs are now executed on schedule.
AEM-1157 In previous versions of the Connector, when using the CTCRolloutTranslation workflow in your custom rollout configuration, the Connector set the cq:lastRolledOutBy property to admin instead of to the user who initiated the workflow. This issue has been resolved. The Connector now sets the cq:lastRolledOutBy property to the user who initiated the workflow.
AEM-1172 In versions 3.4 and higher of the Connector, when navigating from the Search from Site Path field in the Item type page of the Bulk Translation wizard, then if a folder had a child folder with a special character in the name, selecting that folder displayed an error message and the icon of the folder changed to a white square. This issue has been resolved. You can now navigate properly in a structure containing folders with special characters in the name.

Lionbridge Connector for Adobe Experience Manager Release Notes ver. 4.0.0

What’s New?

If either or both of the Language Conversion (URL Reference) and Language Conversion (Content Link) options are configured in the Translation Settings section of the Configuration page, you can now specify the following types of overrides to these configurations:

  • You can specify a file-type override so that the Connector does not convert URL references or content links to a specific file type, for example, .JPG or .GIF files.
  • You can specify a particular filename so that the Connector does not convert URL references or content links to that file. For example, if you specify filename1.jpg, then the Connector does not convert URL references or content links to that file.

You can specify these overrides in the new Prevent URL Conversions section of the Advanced Settings page.

Issue Fixed in This Release
Issue ID Description
AEM-1145 The On-Premise Platform configuration options, which were removed from version 3.4.5 of the Connector, have been returned to the Translation Platform section of the Configuration page because this feature is now supported again.

The Licenseconfiguration option has returned to the Public Platform sub-section of this section.
The Lionbridge Freeway configuration options remain in the new Freeway Config section of the Configuration page.

Clay Tablet Connector for Adobe Experience Manager Release Notes ver. 3.4.6

What’s New?
  • You can now update a remote translation memory (TM) from the Touch Optimized UI of Adobe Experience Manager.
  • You can now add a string to a property name to instruct the Connector either to send that property for translation or to avoid sending that property for translation. This string can be at the beginning, middle, or end of the property name. To configure this feature, in the Component Mapping page, click Property Patterns.
  • You can now configure the Translation Quote feature for each translation provider (LSP). The check box for this feature is now displayed only when it is supported for the selected translation provider (LSP).
  • The Connector now supports the PostgreSQL database.
  • The On-Premise Platform configuration options have been removed from the Translation Platform section of the Configuration page because this feature is no longer supported. The remaining configuration options from this section are now in the new License and Freeway Config sections of the Configuration page.
  • You can now add page properties to pages to prevent the Connector from sending them for translation. You configure this feature in the new Prevent Translation of Pages section of the Advanced Settings page.
  • There are new options when copying the source content to the target content without sending it out for translation: 
  • The new TargetPageExcludedNodes property in the /etc/ctctranslation/PageOptions node in CRXDE Lite enables you to delete child nodes after copying from the source to the target.
  • The new TargetPagePreservedNodes property in the /etc/ctctranslation/PageOptions node in CRXDE Lite enables you to exclude child nodes when copying from the source to the target.
  • In a non-cluster scenario where multiple Adobe Experience Manager servers connect to the Clay Tablet database, the Connector now prevents jobs from being processed by the wrong server.
  • The Connector now supports sending AEM Content Fragments and Experience Fragments for translation.
  • The Connector now supports sending AEM adaptive forms for translation.
Issues Fixed in This Release
Issue ID Description
AEM-1022 Previously, when the Add-In for Lionbridge Freeway was installed, after entering valid credentials for the connection to Freeway in the Freeway Config sub-section of the Translation Platform section of the Configuration page, and then clicking Test, an error message was displayed. This issue has been resolved. Entering valid Freeway credentials and clicking Test now displays a message indicating that the test was successful.

Notes: The Freeway Server field has been removed, and the new Freeway Auth URL and Freeway Service URL fields have been added. The Translation Platform section of the Configuration page has been removed. The Freeway Config sub-section is now a section of the Configuration page.
AEM-1110 When upgrading to version 3.3.3, 3.3.4, or 3.4.0 of the Connector, some values in the following settings in CRXDE Lite were overwritten during the installation process:

/etc/ctctranslation/TransOptions
/etc/ctctranslation/UI_ShowOptions
/etc/ctctranslation/sidekickUI
/etc/ctctranslation/PageOptions
/etc/ctctranslation/fields4trans
/etc/ctctranslation/ctaddlanguages
* /etc/ctctranslation/ctcconfig_ContentTypes

This issue has been resolved. These settings are no longer overwritten when upgrading a Connector installation.
AEM-1122 Previously, an invalid XML character in the PropertyName attribute of i18n tags caused the Connector to display a message about an XML parsing error. This issue has been resolved: since the PropertyName attribute of an i18n tag does not require translation, the Connector now encrypts it, which prevents it from causing an error.
AEM-1125 Previously, when using the Connector's In-Context Preview feature, currently in alpha testing, with Adobe Experience Manager version 6.3, the Adobe Experience Manager Sidekick was displayed in the preview window. This issue has been resolved. The Preview window no longer displays the Sidekick.
AEM-1126 Previously, by default the following properties were copied over from the source content to the target content:

jcr:baseVersion
jcr:versionHistory
jcr:predecessors
jcr:isCheckedOut
jcr:lockIsDeep
jcr:lockOwner

This issue has been resolved. These properties are now included by default in the TargetPageExcludedProperties property in the etc/ctctranslation/PageOptions node in CRXDE Lite, so that the Connector excludes them from being sent for translation.
AEM-1127 Previously, the Connector did not send out content for translation to a language node that did not already exist. For example, the Connector did not send out content from /content/www/en/cat1/products for translation into French because /content/www/fr did not exist. This issue has been resolved. If the node for the target language is missing, the Connector creates it before sending out the content for translation.
AEM-1131 When using version 3.4.0 of the Connector, if the Catch rollout pages to [Rollout] Queue check box was selected in the Translation Settings section of the Configuration page, the Connector displayed incorrect language names when there were multiple groups of language mappings. This issue has been resolved.
AEM-1133 In version 3.2.1 of the Connector, users in a non-admin team profile could not access the Translation Status page, and an error message was displayed. This issue has been resolved.

Clay Tablet Connector for Adobe Experience Manager Release Notes ver. 3.4.5

What’s New?
  • The Connector now supports version 6.4 of Adobe Experience Manager.
  • If page paths are configured for a team profile, then only pages in those paths are available for selection when a team member selects pages to send out for translation.
  • You can now configure the Connector to include or exclude a submitter’s username and email address when submitting a job for translation. You configure this setting with the Submit user name and email as job metadata check box in the Translation Settings section of the Configuration page. By default, this metadata is excluded from the submitted job. This feature supports the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation.

Note: If you are upgrading from a previous version of the Connector, this is a change in the default behavior of the Connector, because previously, this metadata was always included in submitted jobs. If your translation provider relies on this job metadata, notify them of this change.

Recommendation: In the scenario above, enable this option to continue sending this job metadata to your translation provider.

  • You can now select the Allow Reference Files for Translation Job check box in the UI and Default Settings section of the Configuration page to determine whether the Reference Files feature is available in the Translation Queue, Bulk Translation Wizard, Globalization Tool, and the Sidekick wizard. Previously, displaying this user control was determined by the ShowReferenceFilesDialog option in CRXDE Lite.

Note: This feature is backward compatible, so that if you previously configured it in CRXDE Lite, you do not need to reconfigure it in the Configuration page.

  • The Clay Tablet Connector for Adobe Experience Manager Installation and Configuration Guide now includes instructions for configuring the Connector to wrap content for translation in CData tags.
  • The Clay Tablet Connector for Adobe Experience Manager Installation and Configuration Guide now includes a subsection in the “Configuring the Connector” chapter listing all available Connector configuration options in CRXDE Lite.
