Sending an asset for translation


Brightspot provides the ability to translate content into various languages. This topic provides explanation on the process of sending an asset for translation.


To send an asset for translation:

  1. Create the asset you want to send to translation. Click Publish or the appropriate button for your workflow.
  2. In the editorial toolbar, select more_horiz > Translate This Article. Step 1 of the Translation wizard appears.

    Select the content locale and the translation service

  3. Select the Content Locale. This is the locale from where the content is originating.
  4. From the Service list, select one of the following, and then click Next:

    • One of the translation services that your administrator already configured for you.
    • Manual to translate content manually within Brightspot. Use this option to create localized content without using an external service.
  5. In the Target Locales field, select the locales to which the asset is translated and then click Next.

    You can select multiple locales and each will be listed in the Target Locales field.

Brightspot displays a confirmation message that the asset is being translated. You can view the translation assignment under more_horiz > Translations. You can also view the submission in Lingotek if you chose that translation service.
