Create a Translation Project (AEM 6.1)

Before creating a Live Copy, go into AEM and create a translation project. 

AEM Translation Projects

A translation project helps organize and manage translations within AEM and acts as a container for similar translation jobs. Use a project to create translation jobs for an entire site, an entire directory, or a single page, depending on your needs. 

To create a translation project, 

  1. Log into AEM as an administrator.

  2. Go to the side rail and select Projects.
  3. At the upper right, select Create > Translation Project and click Next (upper right).

  4. In the dialog, you will see two tabs, Basic and Advanced.
    1. On the Basic tab, enter a Project Title.

  5. Next, switch to the Advanced tab.

    Here, enter your translation settings. 
    These settings will be applied to all translation jobs using this project. Choose a source and target language, translation provider, and more. See below for help.

    1. Name: Enter a descriptive name. (Tip: Spaces are not allowed in the Name field). This name displays on the translation job tile and will help you find it again later.
    2. Source Language: Scroll to select the source language for the content you will translate with this project. (Tip: Set to English by default). 
    3. Target Language: Scroll to select the target language for the project.  (Tip: Only one target language is allowed per project).  
    4. Translation Method: Select Human Translation
    5. Translation Provider: Select Lingotek.
    6. Cloud Config: Scroll to select a Cloud Config.

      (tick) The Cloud Config links this AEM project with a Lingotek project.

      (tick) The Cloud Config designates which Lingotek project/workflow to use on all content within this AEM translation project.

  6. Click Create (upper right) to create the project.

Once the project is created, add content and start translating.
