Akeneo integration

Connect seamlessly to your Akeneo account to automatically pull your content into Smartcat and push it back when translated.

How does the integration work?

The integration pulls fields marked as localizable from your Akeneo account to Smartcat. By finishing the integration setup, you’ll be able to use Smartcat’s full range of tools to manage your localization project, such as translating content in a specific editor, assigning translators, and managing workflows.

Once translations are complete, you can push the translated fields back to Akeneo with a click of a button or on a schedule.

How do I use the integration?

1. In Akeneo, mark the fields you want to translate as localizable.

2. In Smartcat, create a new integration indicating your Akeneo account data.

3. Choose the languages and workflow settings (e.g. machine, human, or hybrid translation) and wait for the sync to complete.

4. Translate the content using Smartcat.

5. Sync the translated documents back with a click.

The integration can also be set up to push back translations automatically once they are finished or even when partially complete. This feature can be beneficial if you have a hybrid machine/human workflow and desire immediate access to machine-translated material.

How can I benefit from the integration?

After you finish the integration configuration, you’ll have access to all of Smartcat’s tools and capabilities for your project’s needs:

  • You can translate your product data without any breaks, thanks to the fact that you don’t have to download, upload, or send it to your translators.

  • If the source content is modified, Smartcat will automatically identify which segments have been translated and which require updating.

  • You can leverage Smartcat's translation memory and glossary features to elevate the quality and consistency of your project's translations, as well as save money on repeated translations.

  • Your project can take advantage of Smartcat’s machine translation features to generate a rough and fast translation of your content, or to set up hybrid machine-human translation workflows.

  • With Smartcat, you can invite your translators to work on your project directly, without having to share your original content or search for new translators or translation agencies elsewhere.
