Sending Website Pages for Translation from SAP Commerce or SAP Commerce Cloud

You use the Connector to send out website pages ("pages") for translation from the Hybris Backoffice.

When the Connector sends out pages for translation, it actually sends out the configured localized attributes of the content in that page for translation.

Each localized attribute of a business object that is sent out for translation is a content item.

Note: Although you can view non-localized attributes and select them to send them out for translation, the Connector does not actually send out non-localized attributes for translation.

Note: You configure which pages (Content Page objects) and corresponding localized attributes you can send out for translation in the Content Mapping page. For detailed instructions, refer to the Lionbridge Connector for SAP Commerce Installation and Configuration Guide.
