Configurations

CHANGED CONTENT BEHAVIOR

You can configure the behavior of the connector when your source content changes.

Changed Content behaviors:

  • Auto: detects changes to source content every 3 hours, and submits the new content for translation. The connector will not detect net new content, only updates to content that have been submitted for translation in the past.
  • Manual: detects changes to source content every 3 hours, and will not submit new content for translation.
  • Disabled: do not detect changes.

If you would like Smartling to change the default frequency of 3 hours, insert your required cron frequency here.

Form: HubSpot form content.

Page: HubSpot landing page and web page content.

BlogPosts: HubSpot blog content.

Email: HubSpot email content.

You will have already set up your chosen source and target languages from within your HubSpot account. Ensure Smartling is reading your HubSpot locales correctly by completing the Source Language (Hubspot) and Target Languages (Hubspot) fields. 

Depending on which content type you are translating, locale mapping is done as outlined below;

Form / Email

  • Your target locale for these content types can be uniquely referenced within Hubspot (eg: German could be referenced as de, DE, GER, or German in your HubSpot account).
  • Ensure that your unique referenced is copied exactly over to Smartling in the Target Languages (Hubspot) field. This will then be visible to you on your translated email/form file.

Page

  • Choose the correct source locale set up on your HubSpot account from the Source Language (Hubspot) dropdown.
  • Choose the correct target locale set up on your HubSpot account from the Target Languages (Hubspot) dropdown.

BlogPosts

  • The source locale will be the source blog in your HubSpot account.
  • Choose the correct source blog set up on your HubSpot account from the Source Language (Hubspot) dropdown.
  • Choose the correct target locale set up on your HubSpot account from the Target Languages (Hubspot) dropdown.

CONTENT PARSING

SMARTLING SETTINGS

Auto-Authorize Content

You can choose to automatically authorize any new content for translation. If this setting is disabled, any content submitted from Hubspot to Smartling will sit in the Awaiting Authorization queue until a user manually authorizes the job for translation.

Talk to your CSM about enabling auto-authorization.

Retrieval Types

Published: send only published translations to Hubspot

Pseudo: send pseudo translations to Hubspot so you can view the potential layout of your translated asset. This is useful for testing purposes, for example.

Pending: send any available translations to Hubspot, meaning all published and saved translations. This can lead to frequent overwriting of translations in Hubspot which may be problematic for email content as translations will not be updated after the asset has been sent from Hubspot 

If you would like Smartling to change the default frequency of every hour on the 55th minute, insert your required cron frequency here.

Click Save after making any changes.
