    Send pages with Vorto to translator

    What is the best way to send Umbraco pages which contains Vorto properties to a translator so he/she can translate the missing languages?

    The translation file for example will contain code as below:

                    <![CDATA[{"values":{"nl-NL":"Textstring NL},"dtdGuid":"b4b8f5ab-e55c-4dbf-ad8d-080dfa7d81fc"}]]>

    The en-Us variant isn't there already, but needs to be translated.

    Hopefully someone has an answer for this issue.

    Thanks in advance!

    Grtz Sander

    Shameless plug but check out the Translation Manager package (

    This allows you to configure your site to send things like vorto properties to translators in a standard format like XLIFF or integrate directly with a translation service if they have an API . it also provides the mechanism for getting the content back into your umbraco site in the right place depending on the languages translated.

    Doing it yourself - you have to take the values out of the JSON and pass them to your translator, and then when you get source values back put them into the JSON property and save/publish the content. This can get complicated; because if your vorto has something not 'simple' in it (like nested content, or a grid) then you also need to deal with the JSON in that control - so it can become a bit of a rabbit hole.

    Like I just mentioned on Twitter there is an example how you can do it yourself in this blogpost:

    However it's probably a much better option of use Kevin his Translation Manager for this.
