Dropbox integration

Connect seamlessly to your Dropbox account to automatically pull your documents 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 Dropbox, and uploads translated content back when it is ready.

How do I use the integration?

1. In Zapier, create a new Zap with Dropbox > New File in Folder as the trigger and Smartcat > Create Project as the action.

2. Create another Zap with Smartcat > Project Completed as the trigger and Dropbox > Upload File as the action.

3. Whenever a new file is added to your Dropbox, 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 Dropbox.

How can I benefit from the integration?

Upon completing the integration setup, you’ll have access to all of Smartcat’s capabilities to enhance your project:

  • You can translate your documents as needed, without the extra steps of downloading, uploading, or sending it to your translators.

  • Your project can benefit from Smartcat's translation memory and glossary features, which can help improve translation quality and consistency while also saving money on repeated translations.

  • By using Smartcat’s machine translation tools with your project, you can quickly and roughly translate your content, or set up hybrid machine-human translation workflows.

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