Configuring Bulk Translation Settings in Sitecore

You can specify some settings for the Bulk Translation wizard in the Sitecore user interface.

Note: Some of the settings in this section are also relevant to other methods of sending content for translation.

To configure settings for the Bulk Translation wizard:
  1. In the Content Editor, in the content tree, navigate to /sitecore/system/Settings/Lionbridge Settings/Lionbridge Connector Settings/.
  1. Click the Lionbridge Connector Settings item to select it and open it in the content area.
  1. Specify one or more of the following options:
Option Description
Use Local TM Only send fields with changed content Select or clear this check box to specify the default value of the Use Local TM check box in the Advanced Translation Options section of the Translation Options page in the wizard. For a detailed explanation of this option, refer to "Sending Multiple Content Items for Translation" in the Lionbridge Connector for Sitecore User Guide.
Send Media Content Select or clear this check box to allow or prevent sending binary files of any file type for translation.
Field Types Need Translation

Determines which types of fields the Connector can send out for translation when it sends an item for translation. This is relevant for all templates. If you create a custom field type, you must add it to this list so that you can send it out for translation.

Note: You cannot set Shared Fields to be sent out for translation, because these fields are shared across all versions and languages of an item.

To change these fields:

  1. Click the Edit button above the list.
  2. In the dialog box that opens, select the field types to add, and use the blue arrow to copy them to the Selected column. When you are done, click OK.

Tip: You can use the Shift key to select multiple adjacent field types.

By default, the Connector sends out fields of the following field types for translation:

  • text
  • Rich Text
  • html
  • Single-Line Text
  • Multi-Line Text
Default Target Languages In this section, you can select which target languages to select by default in the Settings page of the wizard by selecting the corresponding check boxes. If you do not select any target languages, then all the check boxes for the target languages are blank.
Send dependent items

Select or clear this check box to specify the default value of the Send Dependent Items check box in the Choose Items page of the wizard.

Note: This also specifies the default value of the Send Dependent Items check box in the Automatic Item Export for Translation dialog box.

Templates Excluded from Bulk Translation Use the arrows to move items to exclude to the Selected list. This instructs the wizard to exclude Sitecore items with the corresponding templates when it collects items for translation. By default, Bucket and Folder are selected, so that the wizard excludes item buckets and folders from items that it collects to send out for translation.
Sort Languages Alphabetically

You can specify the sort order of languages displayed in all user interfaces when sending out content items for translation.

  • To sort languages alphabetically, select this check box.

Languages Display Format

Type a # at the beginning and end of the string, for example:

  • #DisplayName#, which can display French (Canada) | français(Canada). This is the default setting.
  • #Name#, which can display fr.

You can include a combination of multiple fields, for example #DisplayName# - #iso#.
