The translate plus Drupal connector

Drupal® is a popular open-source content management system (CMS), used to make many of the websites you use every day and trusted by brands and organisations such as Johnson & Johnson, Cisco and GE. We’ve developed our very own Drupal translation module, the translate plus Drupal connector, which enables Drupal users to simply and efficiently get content translated. Thanks to the connector’s intuitive, easy-to-use interface, Drupal users can send, receive and monitor translations directly within Drupal – there’s no copy-and-pasting, or need to manually import/export files, just simple Drupal content translation.

The Drupal translation module leverages Drupal’s in-built “TMGMT” (Translation Management) functionality, meaning that installing the translate plus connector is as simple as configuring a Drupal “Translation Management Translator”.

To send a page for translation simply use Drupal’s in-built functionality. Just click the Translate tab against a specific page. You can then either choose Request translation to send content for Drupal translation immediately, or click Add to cart to build up a translation cart of multiple pages and articles, which can be sent for translation together.

When submitting a request, you can specify a deadline, optional comments (for example, to provide special instructions) and even a purchase order number if required.

Requests are submitted seamlessly to translate plus, with full encryption for complete peace of mind. Once translations are complete they can be collected and published on-demand, or automatically via scheduled “cron” tasks.

Jobs in progress can be tracked and managed directly within Drupal.

Moreover, because the Drupal commerce translation connector integrates seamlessly and securely with our translation management system, i plus®, you’ll gain the benefits of translation memory, reporting functionality, review plus (with integrated live web preview), and all the other advantages of working with translate plus.

Best of all, the translate plus Drupal connector requires no development expertise or resources: it can be installed in seconds via Drupal’s Regional and language configuration page, and you’re ready to go.
