Managing translations in Content Management Systems (CMS)

What is a CMS?

Today, nearly every website uses a Content Management System (CMS). Especially for large websites with numerous sub-pages, a CMS simplifies maintaining site content for the site administrator or content manager. Using a CMS eliminates the need to alter the underlying HTML code when changing content, for example; instead, (new) text and images can easily be entered and edited through a protected area called the 'back end', using a 'WYSIWYG* editor'. Today, the sheer number of content management systems available can be overwhelming. Some of the most popular CMS are freely available as open source projects (e.g. Typo3, WordPress or Drupal).
* Stands for: 'What you see is what you get' — a principle that corresponds more or less to text input in programs such as Microsoft Word.

How do our CMS plug-ins work?

Our CMS plug-ins enable the efficient and straightforward management of a website's various language versions directly from the content management system: Via the back end, customers can send us all texts available for translation in given source language (e.g. German) with the click of a mouse. The finished translations are then sent back directly to the CMS by us, where they simply have to be checked by the website administrator or content manager before publication. 


What advantages do our plug-ins have, and for whom?

Above all, our CMS connections will benefit large, dynamic websites with several language versions and substantial amounts of content. Specifically, this means that the greater the translation workload (larger text volume in multiple languages), the greater will be the savings in time. Our plug-ins make complex and error-prone import and export procedures, as well as time-consuming formatting operations a thing of the past.
