How does it work?

Stage 1: Initially you need to configure Translution Database Translator using our easy to use web based Configurator:

  • Configure tables and columns for storing translated content. The new columns are automatically created.
  • Configure how the translations will be managed — completely automatically or authorized by you via a dashboard.
  • Configure whether you want machine translation only, machine translation and human translation, or human translation only.
  • Configure the type of translation you require for each columns or individual records:
    • Machine translation
    • Using your own team of translators
    • Professional translation using Translution's team of professional translators
    • Translate, Edit, Review translation. Two Translution translators working together to provide culturally polished translation of your most important marketing message.

Stage 2: Once you have configured Translution Database Translator you should then request the initial database translations:

  • You request the initial translations – either machine translation or human translation or both.
  • The initial database translation is delivered automatically updating your database.
  • You then go live.

Stage 3: You have gone live. You now need to track updates to source language database content and translate the updated / new content:

  • Translution Database Translator checks regularly for changes to source language content in your database.
  • If machine translation is required, when source language content changes, it automatically fetches the machine translation (using your company dictionary and any existing translations) and updates your database with the machine translation.
  • If human translation is required, it automatically requests the human translation. When the human translations are published, it updates your database with the human translation. If machine translation has also been configured it will replace the machine translation stored in your database with the human translation.
  • Every time you update your source language content, perhaps via your content management system, Translution Database Translator manages the translations for you.

Optional Dashboard for Complete Control

Translution Database Translator includes an optional dashboard for authorizing human translation requests. This puts you in complete control of any costs of professional translation. You can also change the type of translation for specific database records from professional to TER translation where the very best quality is required – ideal for that press release, important new product or statement by your CEO.

However if you wish the translation process to be totally automated, you can change the method of translation to automatic. Translution Database Translator will then operate in "Lights Out" mode with no further management requirements and peace of mind that your website content is the same in whatever language.


Re–Configurable at any time

If you add new tables to your database or change an individual table simply re–configure Translution Database Translator.


Complete integration with Translution Localization Manager

Once a professional translation has been authorized, source language content which has changed is automatically sent to Translution Localization Manager. The content is then extracted by your project manager (either working in Translution or one of your colleagues) and the translator(s) appointed. An email is then sent to the translator. The translator logins and completes the translations.

Once the database translation has been published, they are sent back to your database where they update your database records automatically.

Translution Localization Manager also automatically screens out any repetitions or previous translations meaning you only pay for new database translation.


Add additional languages with one click

Initially you may only want to focus your international expansion in certain markets. Adding additional languages (when you are ready) is as easy as a single click. Your initial translations for the new language will be automatically requested.


Completely Secure

Translution Database Translator is completely secure. It connects to your database via ODBC either via port 80 on your firewall or via a specific port number. The connection is made over 128bit SSL, meaning the data is encrypted when its transmitted across the internet.
