Are there any other such translators?

Yes. Wordbee is one such tool for localization of content. It is a cloud-based collaborative translation and project management platform. Wordbee provides Beebox, a CMS connectivity solution to work with AEM.

Adobe AEM CMS can be integrated with Wordbee Translator via its Beebox connector. The AEM-Beebox helps to localize perfectly with minimal management time.

The Beebox Connector is a regular Adobe AEM package (bundle). This connector lets you automatically apply the right project workflow to the right content source. The package has a UI which enables translation jobs and activities. The AEM Connector communicates to the Beebox middleware.

  • The Beebox server is installed at the AEM/CQ owner’s premises.
  • A single Beebox server can connect any number of content management systems with any number of Translation Management Systems or translation teams.
