Translation management is how you manage your project’s translation process, from translating your content to displaying it on your site, and everything in between. And while there are a variety of translation projects (from converting documents, to mobile apps, to websites), there are mainly two ways to handle the actual translation process. ConveyThis offers a comprehensive solution to streamline the entire translation process, from start to finish. With ConveyThis, you can easily manage, track, and monitor your translations, ensuring that your project is completed on time and on budget.
Using a translation agency
If you choose this option, the essential steps include locating a translation agency or independent contractor, sending them the material you need to be translated, waiting for the translations to be returned, and then uploading it on your website. The advantage of an agency is that you are receiving expert translation services. However, this would entail you taking charge of a great deal of the translation process yourself (delivering material, receiving material, displaying content, creating individual URLs for your translated websites, ensuring your translated website is optimized for multilingual SEO, etc.).
Using a translation tool
This combines machine translation engines, human translation, and translation management software to automate your translation process. Software can quickly translate your content into its new language, reducing the need for communication between parties and streamlining your project. It will also take care of technical elements such as displaying your translations. And a tool like ConveyThis also provides you with a translation management platform where you can make adjustments to your translated content, involve professional translators, establish a localization workflow and optimize your project management.
With those 2 options in mind, we’ll take a deep dive into how marketing managers can handle their website translations with ease, while keeping scalability in mind, and show you how to manage your website translations in a breeze.

Translation tools and translation management
Translation tools such as ConveyThis can be a powerful way to streamline the manual labor associated with website translation projects. Automating these processes can help you keep your project away from spreadsheets and centralize it in one platform for improved translation management.
With ConveyThis, we take a 2-layered translation approach: utilizing both human and machine translation to provide the most accurate and natural translations possible.
Quickly translate your entire site with ConveyThis
To get started, just add ConveyThis to your site. ConveyThis was specifically designed to require minimal coding, so you don’t need to worry about creating your own API integration or taking hours of internal resources from your dev/IT team.
Here’s a quick video that illustrates how effortless it is to use ConveyThis:
After ConveyThis is added to your site, you can configure and personalize your translation project and define your localization process. Take note, your website is instantly translated, you can select to keep it in ‘Private Mode’ until you’re ready to make it public.
Your new translated site is ready in a flash. And because ConveyThis takes care of both the translating and displaying aspect of website translation, your newly translated site is automatically displayed under language subdomains/subdirectories of your main site.
This means every translated site gets a unique URL. For example, conveythis.com is our English site, while conveythis.com/de/ is our German site, this was set up automatically by ConveyThis as part of the translation process. You can then delve deeper into the localization process by translating your URLs which not only enhances the user experience but can also be advantageous for international SEO.
