You send out assets for translation from the New Translation page after you collect them in the Select Marketo Assets dialog box, as described in Collecting Assets for Translation.
When the App sends out assets for translation, it creates placeholder assets for tokens. For asset types that support segmentation, such as email, landing pages, forms, and snippets, the target-language content is stored in a related target-language segment in same asset.
Note: If you accidentally delete the placeholder assets, the App replaces them with the translated assets, once they are available.
When you send out assets for translation, you can either:
- send them out immediately for translation as a single job
- add them to the Translation Queue queue, so that you can group them into jobs and send them out later
Note: Assets in the Translation Queue are actually just pointers to the assets in Marketo. If you modify an asset within Marketo after adding it to the queue, those changes are included in the version sent out for translation.
To send out assets for translation:
- Sign in to the Lionbridge App. For details, see Getting Started with the Lionbridge App for Marketo.
- If immediately previously you collected assets for translation, the corresponding check boxes are already selected. You can clear these check boxes or select additional check boxes.
- Select the check boxes of the assets to send out for translation. If you later choose to send out these assets for translation immediately, then the Lionbridge App will send out these assets together as a single translation job.
The assets you select should have the following in common:
- They are in the same source language.
- You want to translate them into the same target languages.
In addition, if you want to immediately send out the assets you select for translation, they should have the following in common:
- You want to send them to the same translation provider.
- You want to apply the same translation settings to them (described in step 6, below) and you want them to be part of the same translation job.
- Click Send Selected for Translation.
Note: This button is available only when all the selected assets are in the same source language.
- Enter the following preliminary information about your translation job:
Select the translation provider for this translation job. The dropdown list displays all translation providers configured for your site.
Note: If you add the assets to the queue instead of immediately out for translation, you can change the translation provider later. The selected translation provider determines which source and target languages are available for selection below. This prevents you from selecting languages that are not supported for a particular translation provider.
|Special Instruction||Any additional instructions for Lionbridge Freeway. Displayed only if the provider selected in the Provider box, above is the Lionbridge Freeway Type.|
The Freeway analysis codes for the translation. Displayed only if:
You specify the analysis codes that are relevant to your content. Your Lionbridge setup determines which analysis codes are available for you to specify, and the values available for selection for each analysis code. For example, the Region, Department, and Priority analysis codes may be available for you to specify.
Select the source language of the selected assets. The Lionbridge App will send assets in this source language for translation. The dropdown list displays all the source languages that your teams are allowed to send out for translation.
Note: Languages are available for selection only if they are supported for the translation provider selected in the Provider field, above.
Select the check boxes for all the target languages into which to translate the selected assets. The list displays all the target languages for which your teams are allowed to request translation.
Tips: To select the check boxes of all available target languages, click the Select All button. To clear all selected check boxes of target languages, click the Clear button.
By default, the Lionbridge App uses the default segment as the source content. To specify a different segment as the source content, select the corresponding check box under Segment has source content.
Tip: To specify different segments as the source content for all target languages, select the adjacent All check box.
Note: Languages are available for selection only if they are supported for the translation provider selected in the Provider field, above and for the selected source language, above.
- Optional. This step is required only if you will click the Send for Translation button at the bottom of the dialog box to send out the assets directly for translation. Click the Translation Job tab to display it.
Note: Enter information in this tab only if you are sending out these assets for translation immediately as a single job, by clicking the Send for Translation button below. If you add these assets to the Translation queue, you add the job information later, when you send out the assets for translation from the queue. If you add these assets to the Translation queue, the Lionbridge App ignores any information in this tab.
Enter the following information about this translation job:
|Job Name||Your name for this translation job. The Lionbridge App sends this information to your translation provider.|
Your description of this translation job, including any special instructions or requests. The Lionbridge App sends this information to your translation provider.
Note: This field will not be displayed if the Lionbridge App is configured to hide it.
Optional. The purchase order reference number, if relevant.
Note: Depending on your company's configuration, this field may have another name, and it may be either a freeform text field or a dropdown list with pre-configured entries available for selection.
|Quote – Send for quote first||Select this check box to inform the translation provider that you want to receive a quote before the translation process starts.|
|LocalTM – Use LocalTM||Select this check box to check whether content was already translated before sending it out for translation. The Lionbridge App sends out only changed content for translation. If content was previously translated and it has not changed, then the Lionbridge App does not send it for translation again: Instead, it uses the stored translation. This feature reduces the quantity of content that the Lionbridge App sends to translation providers, which reduces your cost. However, it increases the processing time before sending out the content for translation.|
|Token – Automatically translate referenced tokens||Select this check box to include all referenced tokens in the translation job.|
|Due Date||The requested translation deadline. This is the date when you expect the translated content to return. By default, it is two weeks from the current date. To select a different date, either type the delivery date in the field in MM/DD/YYYY format, or click in the field and select a different date in the calendar that opens. This information is sent to the translation provider as metadata of the translation package.|
If you are a member of multiple teams, select your team to use for this job.
Note: Your team determines which source and target languages are available for selection in the Languages tab, described in the previous step, and the available translation providers, described below.
Select one of the following to specify which email addresses will receive notifications about this job:
The list of email addresses that will receive email notifications about this job. The selection in the Notification dropdown list, above, determines default list of email addresses. You can edit this list by adding, editing, and deleting email addresses. Each email address must be on a separate line.
Tip: To save the list of email addresses as a new or updated group, click the Save as a new notification group button . A dialog box opens, prompting you to enter a name for the new group. Enter the name and click OK.
- Do one of the following:
- Click Add to Queue to add the selected assets to the Translation Queue.
You or another user on your team must send it out these assets for translation from the Translation queue. For details, see Sending Assets for Translation from the Translation Queue.
- Click Send for Translation to immediately send out the translation job to the specified translation provider.
You can monitor the job's status on the Translation Jobs page. For details, see Monitoring Translation Jobs.
