Slack integration

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

How does the integration work?

The integration automatically creates new Smartcat projects when new content is added to your Slack, and uploads translated content back when it is ready.

How do I use the integration?

1. In Zapier, create a new Zap with Slack > New Message as the trigger and Smartcat > Create Project as the action.

2. Create another Zap with choose Smartcat > Project Completed as the trigger and Slack > Send Message as the action.

3. Whenever a new message is added to your Slack account, wait for the Zap to run and then go to Smartcat > Projects.

4. Translate the content using standard Smartcat features.

Once the translation is complete, it will be automatically pushed back to your Slack account.

How can I benefit from the integration?

After you finish setting up the integration, you’ll be able to utilize all of Smartcat’s capabilities to benefit your project:

  • You can translate your messages on demand, without the hassle of downloading, uploading, or sending it to your translators.

  • Your project can utilize Smartcat's translation memory and glossary features to improve translation quality, consistency, and save money on repeated translations.

  • You can employ Smartcat’s machine translation capabilities with your project to get a quick and rough translation of your content, or to set up hybrid machine-human translation workflows.

  • Smartcat allows you to invite your translators to work on your project without sharing your source material, and you can use the marketplace to find new translation providers.
