Learn how to send products for translation to TextMaster from your SFCC instance.

Send products for translation

  1. Navigate to "Merchant Tools" → "TextMaster"

  2. Select "Send Content for Translation"

  3. Choose the type of content you want to translate: product, category, content asset, library folder, Page Designer, or Page Component. Remember, you can select only one item type for each translation project

Launch your content search. You can refine your search using filters such as ID, category, available language(s), and date. For more control over the selection, you can use the "Exclude items exported on or after date" option to eliminate items already sent to TextMaster after a specific date.

Select the item(s) you want to translate.

Tips: Note that you can export up to 4000 items, but it's recommended to split large exports into several batches.

Choose the attributes you want to translate. This can include or exclude the default attributes you've previously set.

For Page Designer content, you have two export methods:

  • Select different Pages Designers to send global page attributes (like title, SEO elements, etc.)

  • To send specific content for a Page Designer, select the "Page Component" item type. You must select at least one attribute per Component

Choose the different Components you want to send from the dashboard.

For each selected Component, you then need to select the attributes of the Component you want to send for translation.

Tips: You must select at least 1 attribute per Component, otherwise the project cannot be validated and a warning message will indicate which Component is "empty".

Define your project parameters. You need to select a source language and one or more target languages. You can also select an automatic or manual naming method for your project.

Click "Send to TextMaster" once you've selected your content and defined the parameters.

Select your translation templates. For each language pair selected, you'll need to choose a project template, which contains all your pre-set options.

Finally, click "Place order".

By following these steps, you're on your way to creating multilingual product descriptions that cater to your diverse audience. Happy translating!
