Contentful integration

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

How does the integration work?

The integration pulls your content from a specific Contentful space to Smartcat, either manually or automatically on a schedule. Once you’ve completed the integration, you’ll have access to a range of tools for managing your localization project, including the option to translate content in a special editor, assign translators, and oversee workflows using Smartcat.

Once translations are complete, you can push the content back to your Contentful space with a click of a button or on a schedule.

How do I use the integration?

1. Create a space in Contentful to store the documents you want to translate, or select an existing space.

2. Enter the space ID and your Contentful API credentials in Smartcat.

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 automatically push back translations after they are finished or even when partially completed. This feature can be helpful if you have a hybrid machine/human workflow and want immediate access to machine-translated content.

How do I benefit from the integration?

Once you’ve completed the integration configuration, you can take advantage of all of Smartcat’s tools and capabilities for your specific project:

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

  • If the original material is altered, Smartcat will automatically determine which parts have been translated and which require updating.

  • Using Smartcat's translation memory and glossary features on your project can help you improve translation quality, consistency, and reduce costs for repeated translations.

  • Your project can employ Smartcat’s machine translation features to obtain a rough and fast translation of your content, or to configure hybrid machine-human translation processes.

  • Smartcat enables you to bring your translators onto your project without sharing your source material and offers a marketplace for finding new suppliers.
