Using this Guide

Purpose of this guide

This guide describes how to use the Lionbridge Connector ("Connector") for SAP Commerce to manage your translation lifecycle. It describes how to send out localized strings in certain business objects for translation and receive them back from translation.

Who should use this guide

This guide is intended for content editors, project, marketing, localization or translation managers, or others who are responsible for creating, editing, or approving business objects for translation. This guide is also useful for translation providers who receive business objects  from your Hybris, SAP Commerce, or SAP Commerce Cloud installation, because it describes your company's translation management process.

What your company setup should be

This document assumes that:

  • Your company already has a functioning instance of Hybris, SAP Commerce, or SAP Commerce Cloud.
  • The Connector has been installed, configured, and tested on your Hybris, SAP Commerce, or SAP Commerce Cloud instance.
  • The Lionbridge Connector Team has set up the Clay Tablet Platform to send localized strings in certain business objects to your translation providers.
What you should already know

This document assumes that:

  • You are familiar with the Connector's configuration for Hybris, SAP Commerce, or SAP Commerce Cloud, and the reasons for choosing certain configuration options. This is important because your company's configuration determines which features are available.
  • You have a strong working knowledge of Hybris, SAP Commerce, or SAP Commerce Cloud, particularly the following modules:
  • Hybris Backoffice
  • Hybris Product Cockpit and/or Hybris WCMS Cockpit (Hybris versions 6.1 to 6.6 only)
  • SAP Commerce or SAP Commerce Cloud Administration Cockpit
  • You have valid user credentials to log into the Hybris, SAP Commerce, or SAP Commerce Cloud modules listed above.
  • You are familiar with your company's translation process and requirements.
  • You have the required permissions to access the Connector functionality described in this guide.

Note: Not all the features described in this guide may be available. Feature availability depends on both your company's Connector setup and the roles to which you are assigned. If you cannot access functionality that you need, contact your company's Hybris, SAP Commerce, or SAP Commerce Cloud administrator.
