Zendesk Connector

Translating Content in Your Theme using the Zendesk Connector

Smartling uses the Zendesk API to retrieve Articles and Dynamic Content from your Zendesk account for translation. Text that is part of your Zendesk Theme is not directly available via the Zendesk API.

In order for your Help Center homepage theme or template to have custom content that can be translated via the Smartling Zendesk Connector it needs to be added via Dynamic Content curly bars references.

The syntax for using curlybars in a template or template is different from using them in macros or emails. In a template the syntax is {{dc 'dynamic-content-item-name'}}.
