Thursday, 8th October – 16:00 – 17:00 CEST

Exchanging content between systems like Web CMS, ERP, PIM, etc. and the translation world can be quite a hassle, and is, above all, time-consuming and error prone. Project managers know this only too well, and especially fear the technical hurdles and many manual steps associated with these tedious exchange processes. In our webinar we will demonstrate how to benefit from new standards and how to connect almost any content with the translation world auto-magically.

We show you:

  • Different approaches to interfaces and connectors
  • Must-haves and nice-to-haves for interfaces and connectors
  • A few examples with well-known CMSs like AEM or WordPress but also home-grown ERP systems and other workflows
  • How standards can help, such as the German COTI Standard or the GALA initiative “Translation API Cases and Classes” (TAPICC), a collaborative, community-driven, open-source project to advance API standards for multilingual content delivery
