Using the Adobe Experience Manager Translation Integration Framework with the Connector

This section describes how to use Adobe Experience Manager's translation integration feature with the Connector. For detailed information about this feature, refer to the Adobe Experience Manager documentation, "Translating Content for Multilingual Sites" which is available at:

Note: For information on integrating the Connector with this feature, refer to steps 1-3 in the Adobe documentation at the above link and "Integrating the Connector with the Adobe Experience Manager's Translation Integration Framework" in the Lionbridge Connector for Adobe Experience Manager Installation and Configuration Guide.

The Connector integrates with Adobe Experience Manager's translation integration framework feature. This feature enables you to create translation projects and start translation jobs from within Adobe Experience Manager. When you use this integration, you create translation projects and start translation jobs in Adobe Experience Manager, but otherwise you can manage the projects and jobs in the same way that you manage them for jobs that you send directly from the Connector. With this integration, you can:

  • use Connector's comprehensive settings in translation jobs sent from Adobe Experience Manager
  • send translation jobs to the Translation Queue or directly to translation providers
  • monitor translation jobs from the Connector
  • view translated content from the Connector
  • perform post-translation tasks from the Connector

Important: When using the Connector with the Translation Integration Framework, the Connector's component-mapping, team-profiles, and language-mapping features are not available.

When using Adobe Experience Manager's translation integration framework feature to send out content for translation, you complete the following general steps:

  1. You create the root page of a language branch of the site to site to translate, which is called a language copy. For detailed instructions, refer to "Preparing Content for Translation" in the Adobe Experience Manager documentation at: http://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/aem/6-1/administer/sites/translation/tc-prep.html.

Note: In the Connector, this step happens automatically when you send out content for translation. Additional user action is not required.

  1. Specify the translation integration configuration and the Connector cloud configuration for the site to translate.
  • The translation integration configuration contains the Adobe Experience Manager settings for how to translate your content.
  • The Connector cloud configuration contains a set of Connector settings.
