Configuring site-level translation services


In This Guide

You can pre-configure combinations of settings for a translation service at the site level, making it easier for editors to send assets to the translation service without configuring every individual job. For example, you can pre-configure several Lingotek settings, and apply those settings to many translations. Editors can override the site-level settings for individual translations.


Configuring site-level translation services overview

To configure site-level translation services:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Sites & Settings.
  2. In the Sites & Settings widget, click the site for which you want to configure a translation service, or click Global to configure a translation service for all sites.
  3. In the Edit Site or Edit Global widget, under CMS, expand Translation.

      • If you select Draft, Brightspot saves the returned translation as a new asset with a status Draft.
