Connect a HubSpot Account

This article is for Account Owners and Project Managers.

The Smartling HubSpot connector allows you to translate HubSpot content in Smartling. Translations are requested from within Smartling, and translated content is sent back to your HubSpot instance.

The connector supports translation of emails, forms, landing pages, blogs and web pages.

To link your HubSpot account to Smartling, complete all sections below.

Set Up Smartling HubSpot Connector

  1. Log in to HubSpot.
  2. Log in to Smartling and create a HubSpot project type in your Smartling account.
  3. From within this project, click HubSpot > Translate Content.
  4. Authorize Smartling to access your HubSpot account by clicking Login to HubSpot.
  5. On the next screen, select the HubSpot project you just created in Smartling.
  6. Click Connect.
  7. Click Authorize to confirm the connection.

Your HubSpot and Smartling accounts are now connected and your HubSpot content will be pulled into Smartling. You can manage your configuration for each content type from the Hubspot Settings;

  1. In Smartling, go to your HubSpot project
  2. Click the gear icon, and choose Project Settings > Hubspot Settings

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;

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.

Email / Form

  • 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.
