Translate Marketo Content Faster with Crowdin

When you’re planning to launch global digital marketing campaigns with Adobe Marketo Engage, you need your content toengage with the local audiences. But this process can be a rocky road when building your Marketo localization process from scratch on your own. With a Crowdin app for Marketo localization (Adobe Marketo Engage), you’ll be able to translate your emails, landing pages, forms, and more to launch multilingual marketing campaigns in new regions.

In this article, you’ll learn how to send content from your Marketo account to Crowdin in a few clicks, manage translations, and instantly sync completed translations back to Marketo.

Multilingual Marketing with Marketo

When a company decides to become global, there’s always a point where multilingual marketing becomes a necessity. E-commerce businesses do not have the same geographical limitations as physical stores. Thus, digital stores and products can be accessed by their leads and customers wherever they are in the world.

However, with this advantage comes a challenge: the language and cultural barrier. To save you time, I’ll answer the question: multilingual marketing is a necessity in today’s world, and localization automation is the solution. Marketo is one of the 3 most popular marketing automation platforms, used by thousands of users. If you are one of them, you’ll probably be interested in our Marketo translation app for faster content localization.

How to Translate Marketo Content

To create a multilingual email, landing page, or form in Marketo, you’ll first need to translate content into the languages spoken at the markets you want to target.

I bet the first thing that comes to mind is to copy texts into a separate file, send it to translators, and then copy-paste translations into your campaigns in Marketo. Complications start when translators need more context, ask questions, you decide to change the source text. Copy-pasting translations can also be time-consuming. So, there’s always a point where this approach stops working, as it’s not scalable.

Setting up an integration with a localization tool would automate this process for you. This will reduce the time you spend on localization and will allow you to run multilingual campaigns faster. To automate repetitive tasks, and allow employees to focus on high-value work, connect Marketo with Crowdin.

With the Crowdin Marketo translation app, you can:

  • Localize emails, landing pages, and forms.
  • Send content for translation from Marketo to your Crowdin project in a click.
  • Provide context for translators.
  • Enable WYSIWYG file preview for translators.
  • Quick sync and translation of even minor content updates, like a new sentence or a changed word.
  • Use translation memory to reuse translations of repetitive content.
  • Run machine translation to speed up the process.
  • Enjoy other Crowdin features.
