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. You can then use all of Smartcat’s features to run your localization projects, including translating content in the editor, assigning tasks to translators, managing workflows, and more.

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.

You can also configure the integration to push translations back automatically once they are completed, or even when they are partially completed. This can be useful if you have a hybrid machine/human workflow and you want to have access to the machine-translated content right away.

Once the integration is set up, you can use all of Smartcat’s features. In particular:

  • You can translate your product data continuously, without having to download or upload them or send them to your translators.

  • If the original content changes, Smartcat will automatically detect which parts need to be updated.

  • You can use Smartcat’s translation memory and glossary features to improve translation quality and consistency, and save money on repetitions.

  • You can use Smartcat’s machine translation technology to get a quick translation of your content or to configure hybrid machine-human translation workflows.

  • You can invite your translators to work on your projects directly in Smartcat without having to give them access to your original content, or easily find new translation providers (both individual translators and translation agencies) in Smartcat’s marketplace.

Focus on creating and editing your product data while Smartcat takes care of localization.
