Automating Translation Management and Locale Specific Builds

Published on

It is a little known fact that Microsoft SharePoint includes easy-to-use tools for managing document translation. And it is even less widely known that Doc-To-Help’s integration with SharePoint gives you access to these features and automates processes and tracks changes, taking the pain out of managing a translation project. You can store your content (created in Microsoft Word, Doc-To-Help’s editor, or HTML) in a SharePoint Translation Management Library and use SharePoint’s built-in tools to manage your documents.

When a document is translated, it will automatically synchronize with the appropriate project and all you need to do is generate output. You can track a document’s progress and a Doc-To-Help project’s progress all from inside the Doc-To-Help interface.
Since SharePoint has free versions (and most companies already have it), you get a low-cost and easy way to manage the translation process.

This session will show you how Translation Management Libraries work, how you can use SharePoint workflows to automate your translation process, and how to localize and automate builds in Doc-To-Help, including tips and best practices for your localized projects.

  6. “It would take me too long to learn to useSharePoint.”• SharePoint is designed for the average computer user. – Everything is menu driven and it is a member of the Microsoft Office family of products. – If you can use Word, Excel®, and Outlook®, you will have no problem with SharePoint.• SharePoint 2010 uses intuitive Silverlight® driven menus that make features very discoverable. The user experience is actually pleasant.
