Contentful Improvements

Two major improvements were recently released for Contentful connector. Both are targeting localization flow management:


Length Validation for Text-Box Field

One of the most popular content field types in Contentful is 'Short Text'. It is the best way to present small piece of content. However, its length limitation is 256 characters which may pose quite a challenge for the languages like German, Arabic, Russian, etc...where translated texts tend to be significantly longer. Another issue is original text that consists of more than one segment since most of the translation tools don't support validation check for multiple segments. 

In case translated content exceeds this limitation, you will fail to import the translation back to Contentful. Our system is not able to affect the translation tool but we do support the additional validation level that can help a project manager and a linguist quickly identify a mismatching job during the import phase, apply fixes and easily re-import it.
Here is an example of import report with validation error:


Joint Export of Content Element

In Contenful links are a powerful way to model relationships between content. Content elements in the represented web-page may have a lot of links and deep tree structure between the child items. If you want to order localization of all the items represented in the page, it may be very challenging and time-consuming since you'll have to find all the child items (including sub child items, etc) manually. Just FYI, the complex page can consist of 10 - 100 child elements. Thanks to flexibility of iLangL connector configuration you can predefine the linked elements for each content type. Then, all you have to do is choose the content element and we will export it with all the linked elements in a single click.

Here is an example of export report of the simple page 'Hello Contentful' from Contentful Application Example:

Content Provider update

We have released a new version of iLangL Cloud and accordingly our Content Provider has also been updated. For customers who are using content Provider at local server, we strongly recommend that they update the Content Provider to enjoy access to the new features and to prevent any problems with the compatibility of the version.
