In an increasingly globalized world, the ability to communicate effectively across different languages is a vital asset for any business. As a Chief Technology Officer (CTO), you will likely be at the forefront of solving language use cases for your organization. One of the key challenges in this area is ensuring that your content is automatically translated into other languages as soon as it's published.
Kontent.ai is a headless Content Management System (CMS) that offers powerful tools for managing and delivering content across multiple channels. Kontent.ai provides integrations with Translations.com, XTM, and Phrase for translation. One of the most compelling features of Kontent.ai is its ability to integrate with external systems. If you plan on integrating with another translation provider, you can utilize the webhooks feature in Kontent.ai.
When you hit the publish button on your content in Kontent.ai, the system can be configured to automatically send the content to a translation service of your choice. The translated content is then returned to Kontent.ai, ready to be published across your various channels. This process saves time and resources and ensures consistency and accuracy in your multilingual content.
