Review and edit your translations with your own network or an expert from Localize.

Frequently asked questions

The multilingual add-on for The HiVE integrates Localize, a leading Translation Management System (TMS). This service lets you deliver your content in multiple languages so you can engage with your community regardless of the language they speak.

Localize leverages the speed and scalability of cutting-edge machine translation services such as Google Translate while also giving you full control over the translation process. It ensures you can deliver professional and accurate translations in an efficient way.

With the multilingual add-on, you nominate a set number of languages for use on your site (up to 10). These are usually the languages that are most commonly used in your community, or used by a community segment you're targeting.

Yes! After you've purchased the add-on we'll get it set up on your HiVE instance and create a new account for you on Localize.

During the setup process, we'll ask you to decide which languages you want to install. The languages you pick must be available from the Google Machine Translation Engine.

After you have chosen your languages, you simply have to decide whether you want to use the translation functionality across your whole site or have the ability to pick and choose for specific projects only.

And that's it! Once successfully enabled, the content of your HiVE site will be pulled into the Localize TMS and automatically translated into your nominated languages. You will see a language picker active on your site that allows users to switch the language of the page.

You can manage your translations from the Localize dashboard. Content from your HiVE site is converted into phrases in Localize. These phrases allow you to review, edit and update to machine translations if you desire, giving you full control over the translations that appear across your site.

If you make a change to a phrase, your changes will automatically be reflected in all instances of that phrase.

You cannot edit translations of The HiVE interface itself (e.g. the hard-coded copy of a button element). If you need to update any of these translations, please contact support.

Content contributed by your community (e.g. surveys, ideas, social map posts, etc.) that is in a language different from the system default is not translated and will not be visible in Localize.

Public content submitted by your participants can only be moderated in English. Content in any other language will be referred back to your for review and approval by our moderators.

This ensures that there are no automated translations that could impact context or data from submissions.
