Introduction to Connectors & Plugins

To help automate your translations process, Smartling offers a range of pre-built integrations that connect to a variety of software, including:

  4. Customer Support
  5. Code Repository

Smartling supports two types of connector integrations

  1. Hosted connectors
  2. Non-hosted connectors

Hosted Connectors

Hosted connectors are hosted on Smartling servers and have a similar experience in Smartling. They are connected and configured within Smartling. Once connected, all source content is automatically visible in Smartling. Translations are requested and managed within Smartling. Translations are automatically delivered to the connecting software once complete. 

For information on configuration options, read our documentation on Smartling's Hosted Connector Configuration Overview.

Non-hosted Connectors

Non-hosted connectors are plugins for software, UI hosted on a software external to the Smartling dashboard. They are connected and configured within the connecting software itself. Once connected, content is not automatically visible in Smartling and must be submitted manually. You submit content to Smartling from the connecting software. Translations are automatically delivered to the connecting software once complete.
