Connect an Oracle Eloqua Account

This article is for Account Owners and Project Managers.

The Smartling Eloqua connector allows you to translate Eloqua content with context. Translations are requested from within Eloqua, and translated content is automatically sent back to your Eloqua instance.

The connector supports translation of emails, landing pages, and dynamic content.

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

Setup Smartling Eloqua Connector

Authenticate

  1. Create an Eloqua Project type in Smartling.
  2. From within this project, click Project Settings > Eloqua > Translate Content.
  3. Authorize Smartling to access your Eloqua account by clicking the Login to Eloqua button.
  4. On the next screen click Login to proceed.
  5. Enter your Eloqua login details and click Sign In.

It's a good idea to create a new Eloqua user for the connector to use. This helps prevent confusion with content added via the connector versus content created by a regular user. Doing this will allow the connector to continue to function if any of your Eloqua users are ever disabled.

Configure

Changed Content Behavior

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

  1. From within your Smartling Eloqua Project, click on Project Settings > Eloqua Settings.
  2. Click the Resubmit changed content dropdown to select your desired changed content behavior.

Changed Content behaviors:

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