Getting started

Step 1: Bundle installation

Follow the installation guide for the bundle.

Step 2: Configure your content types

Separate your content field types into translatable and non-translatable content. Fields types which are IDs or numbers are for example non-translatable. The admin interface offers a checkbox to control this.

Step 3 (optional): Translate your frontend sources

Follow the frontend translation guide for the translation manager.

Step 4 (optional): Implement translation logic for custom field types

If you installation has custom field types, follow the implementation guide for custom fields types which do not ship with the default distribution. The Translation Manager already has support for all build-in fields types such as richtext, text or image.

Step 5 (optional): Configure roles and permission

Consider the following:

  • Editors do not have access to edit target languages or access to the translation manager.
  • Create a new role for a translation manager which differs from the default admin roles.

Follow the permissions guide for the translation manager.

Step 6 (optional): Use a translation delivery platform

Consider using our recommended translation delivery platform for the translation manager.

Step 7: Start your first translation job

Follow the user guide for the translation manager.
