Connectors – How They Work?

iLangL utilizes connectors in order to integrate with the different CMS of customers. Thus using the connector template instance, iLangL connects its server with the customer’s website. The connector template used in actual is a DML written directives tool that define the entity of the CMS. For a template to support import/export of content for any customer’s specific system, behavior and mapping is required.

Connectors follow a set of rules in order to prove their true worth. These rules include:

  1. A connector created by iLangL will never harm any pre existing content in any way. It is designed to support the system it is being used for. If a system of the customer supports versioning, the connector will import the translated content in form of a new version for the system.
  2. All iLangL connectors are designed so that they can be easily used by even those who are non experts and can easily import/export content. The simple rule of ‘what you see is what you order’ applies.
  3. Another major objective of iLangL connector is to prevent user’s time from being spent on preparation of importing target content. If the translated content is not present in the customer’s system, the connector will automatically connect it.
