What is the best translator for Confluence ?

Hi Folks,

We have a Multilanguage team. Most of the content in Confluence is written in GERMAN, and some other in ENGLISH.

 

WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR:

  • Create a page in Confluence and chose the main language of the page
  • choose the language in which we wish to translate the content
  • Generate Automatic translation
  • Translation must also be editable (light change)
  • When we update the page in main language, the translation are automatically updated
  • User can select the language of the page (example : “Translations for Confluence - by bitvoodoo ag”)

 

NOTE:

  • We have some Jira content in the page (link, task, table, …)

 

Here are my top-5 choice :

  1. Translations for Confluence - by bitvoodoo
  2. Easy Confluence Translator - by EPS Software Engineering AG
  3. Scroll Translations for Confluence - by K15t
  4. Translator for Confluence - by venITure
  5. Translate for Confluence - by MOEWE

 

What do you think and recommend?

 

Thanks

Hey @Gaetan Gaston

I'm with the team behind Scroll Translations. Our app can do everything you mentioned but, the holy grail of languages, perform automatic translation.

What we do support is the ability to export/import content from your default language using the .XLIFF (the industry standard translation format) so your team could do the translation in a translation management system. Some TMS apps can integrate with an AI translation tool like Google Translate or DeepL. Either that, or you can work with a third party who does the translation work.

You can also do manual translations right in Confluence, which is great for a multilingual team. 🙂 This also works well if you want to quickly copy text into an AI translator, like Google Translate, and then paste the results back into Confluence. It's not seamless, but it works.

Of course, please try the free trial and see what you think. The trial includes our support, so if you have any questions, you can ask our team directly. We'd love to see how it works for you.

If you'd like to see it in action, just grab a spot on my calendar.

Also, I'd encourage you to try the other apps you mentioned. I know personally that the teams at bitvoodoo and MOEWE are great, I'm sure the rest are as well. Maybe ask around in the Write the Docs (WTD) Slack #confluence channel. The WTD community is full of great tech writers and translators, and the #confluence channel is a good spot to see what users are liking. The #I18n channel might also be a good spot to ask.

I hope this aids you on your quest!

Hi @Gaetan Gaston 

As one of the vendors, I cannot and will not make a recommendation. But our Easy Confluence Translator supports five of your mentioned points and one almost. I am not sure about your note. This would have to be tested.
Of course we are very happy to support you with a possible evaluation. Just send an email to info@eps.ch. Possibly you could already indicate possible dates for a video call. Then it will go even faster.

Regards,
Stephan (PM at EPS Software Engineering AG, the vendor of the Easy Confluence Translator)

Hi @Gaetan Gaston 

my name is Kevin and I am a member of the bitvoodoo team :) I can confirm that you can achieve nearly all the listed points with our App "Translations for Confluence". Ou app works like this: 

  • You have different Macros per language which you can place on a Confluence Page. ("German", "English", etc. for example)
  • Inside these Macros you can place your language specific content
  • The shown content will be detected as follows:
    • Your profile language
    • if no there is no matching language macro then it will check your browser language
    • if there still is no match then it will show the system default language (Confluence settings )or space default language 
    • Here you can see it as a flowchart: https://wiki.bitvoodoo.ch/x/DoTPBQ

The only function which we don't deliver is the "automatic translation". We evaluated it but decided to not implement this feature. But if you are using Jira Service Desk we can tell you that our translated content will also work for the knowledge base ;) 

I hope I could help you with this answer and please feel free to contact us for any further questions! Just send a mail at support@bitvoodoo.ch

Best regards.
