Working with a multilingual Sitecore website? Turbo-charge translation with a LanguageWire connector! If you’ve never heard of our connectors, they act as an automatic link between your CMS and our language collaboration platform. With translation integration, you’re able to order translations from our global network of language experts directly from the Sitecore user interface – saving massive amounts of time, simplifying your content creation work-flows, freeing up resources and reducing errors.
The need for localised content
We get it, the demand for localised content is skyrocketing. Research shows that 84% of business buyers are more likely to buy a product with online information in their language (Localization Matters (2014). Common Sense Advisory). But budgets are tight and the age old problem of doing more with less arises. That’s where we come in, by creating efficient translation technology that helps businesses reach more customers globally.
It saves time
The core value in a LanguageWire Sitecore Connector is how it dramatically simplifies translation; achieving this by automating previously manual work. A connector gets rid of the need to keep track of multiple files, tracking edits via email and the dreaded time spent copying and pasting.
For example, translating a new website of 100 pages into five languages would save a massive 10,000 minutes. This corresponds to over a month's work, or 167 hours. That’s enough time for 41 rounds of golf, to view 79 games of football, taking 7 flights from the UK to New Zealand or learning a new language to a basic level!
Easy to use & robust
The Sitecore Connector not only saves time spent on translation, but it is very easy to implement. It comes as a software update package and only takes 15 minutes to install. We then configure the connector to your business needs, setting up work-flows and user permissions to maximise the value of the connector. With minimal training time, content authors will be able to order translations directly from the Sitecore UI, reducing time-to-publish and helping you scale globally across all markets.
We’ve also made sure that our connectors are technically very robust. This emphasis on stability and error management means communication doesn’t get lost if there is a network interruption of some kind.
Here’s a run-down of some major benefits to be gained by translation integration and automation:
- Optimise your time-to-market
- Simplify translation work-flows
- Avoid copy-paste errors
- Free up resources and reduce costs
- Centralise translation and keep an overview
That’s a lot to take in about the power of translation integration. So we’ve made it simpler by creating this handy infographic that demonstrates how you’ll benefit from using a LanguageWire Sitecore Connector.
