Argo Translation's CMS Connect Plugin Makes Content Management Translation, Updates Easy

GLENVIEW, Ill., April 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Argo Translation is offering the CMS Connect™ plugin, cutting the steps in a typical content management translation by two-thirds and allowing transparency on all services, from the first uploaded document to the project's completion.

This automation feature ensures flow from Argo's translation team to a company's content management system, saving time and money while reducing friction in the translation process, Argo founder Peter Argondizzo says.

The process eliminates the need for a file extraction, manages updates and additions more quickly, and requires no manual file transfer. After simply selecting and uploading the pages to be translated, a cost estimate is generated within minutes. As soon as approval is received, Argo's translation team goes into action on its human translation workflow, and clients can log on to see progress every step of the way.  When the project is edited and complete, the files are automatically sent back to the CMS.

Argo supports multiple content management systems, including WordPress, Joomla, Kentico, Drupal, and many others. Custom development of new systems is also available.

Current Argo clients using CMS Connect™ include a leading manufacturer of commercial and residential water heaters and a 125 year-old global manufacturer of process and motion control systems. "But smaller businesses and organizations can benefit, too," Argondizzo says. "It's easy to use, offers faster turnaround time, and is billed monthly in a system tailored to their needs."

Launch Websites Faster With SDL Digital Accelerator 2.0

SDL Community Sets Standard for Next-Generation Digital Experiences (DX)

MAIDENHEAD, England, March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SDL (LSE: SDL), a leader in global content management, translation and digital experience, today announced the release of SDL Digital Experience Accelerator (DXA) 2.0, providing a new modern architecture to help brands create, design, and publish enterprise websites faster and with greater ease.

Jointly developed by the SDL Community and SDL, DXA 2.0 is a foundation and quick-start implementation toolkit for brands to rapidly launch and manage their ongoing SDL Tridion DX deployments. Even with limited technical knowledge, teams can use and easily navigate the framework to build fully operational enterprise-scale and mobile-optimized websites in any frontend delivery technology.

Designed from the ground up, SDL DXA 2.0 includes best practices, scripts, templates and a rich set of functionality to reduce manual processes and complexity in deploying multi-lingual websites. Also new in SDL DXA 2.0 is a themed approach towards the look and feel, making it even easier to skin the resulting websites.

"Brands can no longer afford lengthy implementation cycles to create and update digital experiences. They need the agility to respond rapidly to market changes and new opportunities," explains Arjen van den Akker, Product Marketing Director at SDL. "SDL DXA 2.0 is designed to address this challenge, and facilitate faster web deployments across multiple languages and geographies in a short time span. Built on top of SDL Tridion DX, it leverages the platform's headless options and offers a fully adaptive and responsive experience. It can be used for smaller initiatives, such as microsites, but it's equally well-suited for enterprise-wide deployments."

SDL DXA 2.0 provides a standard for creating and sharing additional web application functionality and widgets to further accelerate the delivery of SDL Tridion-based websites. This enables the developer community to easily build extensions and further increase its value. It also includes several compatibility features to facilitate a seamless migration from its predecessor (DD4T) to SDL DXA 2.0.

The acclaimed business value of SDL DXA is underpinned by real customer use cases. "It took just 16 weeks to launch the China Airlines U.S. website with the SDL Digital Experience Accelerator," said Jenny Tsao, VP, Passenger Marketing, China Airlines. "Following the launch, the amount of traffic doubled, with conversion rates increasing by 90%." 

"This latest release is a major milestone towards fully merging DD4T and DXA, as announced at Tridion Developer Summit in 2016," said Ron Grisnich, Trivident. "Its progress highlights the commitment of the community to give customers the functionality they need to build exciting next-generation experiences."

SDL Tridion DX re-defines the way companies can build digital experiences on a global scale by combining the best of Web Content Management (WCM) and Structured Content Management (CCMS) with translation technology and machine learning. Both marketing and in-depth product content can be created, managed and delivered in a way that eliminates the typical disconnects that characterize digital experiences today. It enables companies to build brand equity across the entire customer journey from pre-sale through sale to post-sale, regardless of location, language or touchpoint.
