    Smartcat Connector for Umbraco

    We would like to connect a translation management system called Smartcat which already has an open API to Umraco CMS. https://www.smartcat.com/integrations

    Is it quite straghtforward to connect Smartcat to Umbraco?

    Hi,

    I am slightly bias, but i would say the quickest way to hook this up would be to write a translation connector for Translation Manager.

    Translation Manager handles all of the getting content in and out of Umbraco : not a trivial thing - as quite a lot of it is stored in JSON blobs, and you have to know how to get the text vs ids and keys etc, and you have to be able to handle it all nested (e.g content in nested content in the grid).

    It also has build in Serializers to turn stuff into XLIFF (which is an industry standard translation format, lets you hide away HTML formatting etc - so its not lost during translation).

    An example of what a connector looks like is available on GitHub: the main chunk of code you would have to implement would be the submit and check methods in the main class.

    https://github.com/KevinJump/TranslationManager.Provider.Example/blob/master/Translation.ExampleProvider/ExampleProvider.cs

    There isn't a v9 release of Translation Manager just yet - but that is what we are working on now, we should have a beta ready by the end of this month so next week.

    Also we have do this for many translation companies before - so if you have a contact in Smartcat - we are happy to discuss this with them and potentially we could produce the connector which could then be reused.

    Thank you for the detailed information. Yes we have a contact at Smartcat and we have a call with them today at 17:45 PM to discuss the connector. When is your team available to speak to our Smartcat Contact?
