Instant Translation for Zendesk


We’re thrilled to announce that our Zendesk Connector now offers users the ability to choose between Verified or Instant Translation to localize Zendesk content.

Verified Translation sends your content to Lilt, where human linguists translate, review, and approve your newly localized content before sending it back to Zendesk for review and publishing.

Instant Translation provides a machine translated version of your article within seconds, and with more than 70 supported languages, it’s the quickest way to localize your Zendesk content.

Lilt Translate Enhancements

At Lilt, we obsess over the translator experience, and we’re excited to share two enhancements to Translate that are helping translators work faster and access more content context, resulting in quicker and more accurate translations for all Lilt customers.

Our new infinite scrolling provides a seamless translation environment for each document. By eliminating document pagination, linguists never have to wait for a new page to load and don’t miss segment context that came directly before or after the first and last segment on a page.

Contextual TM metadata, our latest segment context enhancement, surfaces information about a TM or TB directly in the Translate sidebar. By providing linguists with the ability to see TM or TB metadata in-line, context is immediately shared and duplicates are grouped for optimal display.

eBook: Building for a New Age in Global Customer Experience
