Updating a Translation Memory for a Single Page from the Adobe Experience Manager Sidekick

After translated content returns from the translation provider to Adobe Experience Manager, you can review the translation and update it. You can then send these updates to the translation memory, so that they will be available to the translation provider for subsequent translations.

If you are using the Adobe Experience Manager Classic UI, you can update translated content and send these changes to the translation memory using Sidekick.

Tips: If you update translated content in multiple pages of a translation job, you can send all the updates to the translation memory in a single action using the Update TM button in the Status tab of the Translation Status page. For details, see Updating a Translation Memory for Multiple Pages. In Adobe Experience Manager version 6.3 and higher, you can update translated content and send these changes to the translation memory from the Touch-Optimized UI. For details, see Updating a Translation Memory for a Single Page from the Touch-Optimized UI (Adobe Experience Manager version 6.3 and higher only).
