Umbraco is a free CMS that has been growing in popularity around the world. It gained considerable market share thanks to its power, easy installation and management, and incorporation of new technologies. Since Version 8, Umbraco has introduced many improvements in terms of localization. This enables users of Umbraco to build multilingual websites more professionally.
As part of our continuous commitment to support new versions of content management systems, GPI is constantly updating its Translation Services Connector for Umbraco to support the newest versions.
In this blog, I will describe the features and benefits of the GPI Umbraco Translation Connector.
The connector is distributed as an installation package that can be easily installed in your Umbraco instance with just a few clicks. Depending on your Umbraco version, it can be installed either as a local package or through the Umbraco Marketplace. Once installed, you will need to follow a few steps to configure the security settings. Then, you’ll be ready to start using it!
The connector follows Umbraco’s best practices and uses the same Umbraco templates and designs. As a result, this maximizes user experience by making the connector look like just an extension of the platform.
Friendly User Interface
The connector simplifies the translation by allowing you to have your entire site translated by filling out a single form.
Also, the connector will allow you to import translated content with a single click. The translations will be imported in their corresponding Language Variants for each translated page.
Support for Dictionary
The connector supports exporting Dictionary entries for translation, all within the same Dictionary page. Also, the GPI connector provides a table that gives you a quick picture of what dictionary items are already translated, and which ones need translation, depending on the cultures enabled on your Umbraco back end.
Dashboard for Tracking Translation Workflows
The connector provides you with a dashboard screen to quickly see an overview of the status of all your localization projects. Additionally, you can access the secure Translation Portal provided by GPI, where you can find more details about the status of your quotes and projects.
The GPI Umbraco Translation Connector, with its straightforward installation and setup, helps you easily translate and update your multilingual Umbraco website.. With one click, you can easily send content for translation and upload that content back. Lastly, you can view the status of all your translation projects and access your global language teams when needed.
