Google Drive integration

Connect seamlessly to your Google Drive 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 Google Drive, and uploads translated content back when it is ready.

How do I use the integration?

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

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

3. Whenever a new file is added to your Google Drive, 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 Google Drive.

How can I benefit from the integration?

By configuring the integration, you’ll be able to benefit from all of Smartcat’s features for the success of your project:

  • You can translate your documents without any breaks, without needing to download, upload, or send it to your translators.

  • You can improve translation quality and consistency, as well as save money on repeated translations, by using Smartcat’s translation memory and glossary features with your project.

  • Smartcat’s machine translation features can be utilized with your project to produce a quick and rough translation of your content or to configure hybrid machine-human translation processes.

  • You don’t have to give your translators access to your original content when using Smartcat to invite them to work on your project, and you can also search for new translation providers in the marketplace.
