Standardised file transfer of complex translation projects via REST API .
Complex translation projects often demand a lot from all those involved: The files have to be transferred to the provider so that it can translate the content. In order to do away with this often time-consuming process, KERN offers its own independently developed REST API (API4client™), which makes the following possible:
Our translation engineers guide the development of a plug-in or middleware so you can connect your system to an API - so manually importing and exporting individual documents is no longer necessary. This saves a significant amount of time. The direct connection of the REST API to portal4client™ makes it possible to exchange files and transfer all relevant project parameters to KERN. In this way, created projects can be automated from the customer system. The processing of an order in the API is based on status, which leads to security in the translation process and serves the status-dependant provision of functions in the API. Once the quality assurance of the translation has been completed and the translation finalised, the finished translation can be retrieved completely automatically from the client system via the REST API.
Depending on the system that is to be connected and its expansion options (e.g. by means of SDK) it is possible to create a plug-in with which basic information about the translation process can be transferred. This includes, for example, project creation triggered in the customer’s system, specifying the desired target languages, or real time transmission of the translation status, cost estimates or overviews of existing projects.
The connection between API4client™ and the customer’s system can actually be made without a plug-in. Therefore the middleware controls when new projects are created and which target languages they are translated into. For any other requirements for the translation process, it is possible to adapt the functions of API4client™ to your needs at any point.
Through using portal4client™, we guarantee a seamless and flexible collaboration that fulfils any needs our customers may have. With its extensive workflow component, integrated translation memory and terminology databases as well as process automation and file processing options, the portal solutions is the optimal basis for efficient translation management. API4client™ ensures direct communication between the client system and portal4client™, enabling an automated information exchange.
To make the connection to the API interface as simple as possible, KERN offers extensive REST API documentation. This lists available endpoints, as well as their correct use and the necessary parameters.
KERN Global Language Services supports you in developing a plug-in with a connection to the API interface for Content Management Systems (CMS) or Product Information Management Systems (PIM)
The plug-in transfers the content to be translated directly from your CMS or PIM to our system via our API interface. As soon as the text has been translated and proofread, it is fed back into the CMS/PIM via the API.
A plug-in like this thus enables a considerably faster transfer of content, which eliminates the need for manually importing and exporting text. In this way, classic sources of error that can arise from copying and pasting can be avoided too. This saves time and money!
You will now see a selection of the CMS and PIM systems for which we offer plug-ins:
The well-known online shop software enables management of several e-shops with different domains and languages.
The CMS enables intuitive management of website content, including multilingual back-end and front-end.
The CMS enables blog entries to be created and managed easily. It can be expanded upon to include language export via plug-ins.
The CMS is used to organise websites and it enables various expansions of interfaces.
The CMS serves to create websites and offers a variety of functions, such as language internationalisation
The combination of CMS and Digital Asset Management allows you to update content easily.
The integration of our connector to the CMS allows multilingual content to be transferred automatically!
One of the things that the automation software offers is solutions for content creation. Our connector means the translations can be managed easily!
With our connector for the CMS, content is automatically transferred into our system and fed into Magnolia after it has been translated.
The PIM solution enables optimised content to be delivered quickly and product data can be imported automatically.
The CMS Censhare enables content and processes to be managed easily. The connector allows translation jobs to be completed automatically.
By connecting webshop4client ™ to your shop environment, language services can be ordered directly and order information is transmitted automatically to your ordering system. As a result of this, the entire ordering process is significantly simplified. This also guarantees a more efficient workflow: The shopping cart is filled with translation jobs and can be ordered with a single click. The relevant data (content of the shopping cart, cost centre, price) are then transmitted via either OCI or cXML punchout to your ordering system , which, if required, creates an order after processing and approval, meaning the translation can be commissioned immediately. Further processing of the project takes place in portal4client™ in a workflow-driven manner. You receive a notification as soon as the target files are available and can be downloaded.
This significantly increases the overall speed and efficiency of order processing.
The KERN webshop makes it possible to place translation jobs in an intuitive shop environment and to transfer them to your OCI or cXML-compatible systems following an analysis and price calculation of the content to be translated. In addition to the interface function, the webshop also features a standard ordering process by which you can order the items placed in your shopping cart directly in the shop without switching to your own ordering system.
