Crowdin product updates October 2022

Salesforce Marketing Cloud app, Contentstack connector, ICU Message Format Helper app, and the ability to change the default translation memory (TM) and glossary are just a little part of what happened at Crowdin in October. Here’s our monthly recap.

Crowdin Marketplace

Translate Contentstack Contentstack

Contentstack is an enterprise-ready, headless CMS. Crowdin connector for Contentstack has been built with all the experience we gathered while making headless CMS connectors. It has automatic synchronization, nice file previews, contextual information for translators, and allows translating all stacks from the CMS. The app is free of charge while in beta and will remain free for users who installed it during the beta period.

Translate Salesforce Marketing Cloud Salesforce Marketing Cloud

New app for marketers to launch multilingual digital marketing strategies with Salesforce Marketing Cloud and Crowdin. Install the app to translate and sync your content in a few clicks. Localize your emails and mobile (SMS) messaging with the help of your team, machine translation engines, or order professional translations from Crowdin Language Services.

Integrate Make Make

Make is a visual platform that lets you design, build, and automate anything – from simple tasks to complex workflows by using a powerful, no-code toolkit. With the Crowdin app for Make, you can send information between Crowdin and thousands of apps.

Make has implemented more than 70 Crowdin API methods and webhook listeners. It’s fast and easy to use, visually intuitive and requires zero coding expertise. Make lets you create custom workflows with your calendars, emails, messaging apps, marketing tools, and more. Thus, you can automate database management, content changes, and more at the speed of your ideas. Design your workflows with as many steps as you need. It just takes a few minutes to set up an automation that will improve your team’s communication and overall progress. Get rid of the manual work, and focus on innovating with Make.

Here are some of the most-asked features from Crowdin clients:

  1. Transform Jira/Asana/Trello tasks into “Translation requests”.

Allow your team to request translations by creating a task in the task management system you use. Make will transform the task into a Crowdin project, send the attached field to Crowdin, and notify a Crowdin manager. When translations are ready, Make will attach them back to the original task and close the task, notifying the person who requested the translation.

  1. Invoices/Quotes automation.

Make can track “New Task” events, generate “Cost Estimate” reports for new tasks, and transform report data into quotes or invoices in the system you use to manage finance. Make can do the same for project updates, any new content will be estimated and transformed into a quote or invoice.

Crowdin Editor: View String Identifiers (Keys)

This month, we added the ability to view string identifiers (keys) right in the Editor. You can search for strings by keys too.

View String Identifiers

View String In Context

After you find the string through the search, it is necessary to see its context (view previous and subsequent strings in the file). To help you with this, we added a view string in context feature in the Editor.
