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

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.

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 use the machine-translated content right away.

How do I benefit from the integration?

Once the integration is set up, you can benefit from all of Smartcat’s features, including:

  • Translate your content continuously, without having to download or upload it or send it to your translators.

  • Whenever any original content changes, Smartcat will automatically detect what translations need to be updated.

  • Use Smartcat’s translation memory and glossary features to improve translation quality and consistency and save money on repetitions.

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

  • Invite translators you already work with to 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 great content while Smartcat takes care of localization.
