Learn how to create, edit and manage a multi-language translation project for your Language Copy from AEM’s Project console
An additional item that I want to discuss here about translation projects is the fact that the translation projects don’t need to be created necessarily using the create language copy wizard but rather you can also use the AM projects console in order to create them. Let me go here and go back into a projects console so we can check that out. So I’m going to go ahead now and while on this folder, I’m going to create a new folder called Multi Language project.
Okay and going to the folder and within that I’m going to create a brand-new project, okay? And this brand new project is going to be using the translation project template or project template, click next. Okay, so I’m going to give this a title Translate Multiple Language Copies.
So what I’m going to do now is create a translation project that is going to be translating, is going to be in charge of translating not just one but multiple language copies.
All right and on the advanced tab this is going to allow us to set up the advanced translation specific configuration items. So the source language is also going to be English and the target language in this case is going to become instead of French as we had previously we’ll select German, okay and let’s also select Spanish, there it is. Alright, so now we have two target languages there, we could put more than two as well.
Now, once again I’m going to do the same settings here for the translation, integration framework configurations, okay? And Then I’m going to now click on create, done.
All right, now if I go into this project, I should be able to see that two translation jobs have been added to it, one for German and one for Spanish as you can see here on the target.
What we have to notice now regarding these two translation jobs that we just created here are both empty. The details or the summary here is showing nothing as you can see the only thing we can see is that the targets are correct but everything else is empty right now, how can we go about adding something to get translated? For that, I’m going to click here on the ellipses that he have here at the bottom of the translation job and now I’m going to add pages to a translation job. So I’m going to go ahead and click here on asset pages and select here from this path finder the source which is going to English, okay? And it is now going to ask me whether I want to create a new language copy out of my selection so this is actually going to create the structure for German within my language masters. So, I’m going to click here, create language copy.
Alright, now everything has been added. Next, I’m going to go back out into the project and do the same for Spanish. I have both my translation jobs populated with actual resources to translate, the next step would be to start the two translation jobs. I could go about doing these one by one by clicking on this drop down and starting each one of these individually, but rather I will go out or get out of the project into the folder and select the project itself. So I can click here and start translation jobs and this will save me time and will start the translation job execution for both those languages.
Okay, so now both translation jobs have been completed, let’s go ahead and go into the sites console and check out the resulting two new language copies within masters I should have now one in Spanish and everything is now in Spanish and one in German. The last thing I want to talk about regarding the translation projects is that what if you don’t want to have to manually start your translation jobs, but rather you want to automate the creation of this translation jobs on a recurring basis. You can do that with these translation projects. I’m going to now head inside and open once again the summary tile, clicking here on the ellipsis advanced and you can see here at the bottom we have the repeat translation which allows us to create new translation jobs on a recurring basis either daily, weekly, monthly, I could select daily for example and select these to be done maybe at 2 a.m. or something like that.
Okay, save and close and that will have basically created a scheduling for a new job to be created and when that time arrives the status will be draft initially and then automatically they will move on to the next status because the translation jobs will get started automatically once they are on the draft status. -
