1 - Terminology
|Asset||A content item that you manage using Marketo, for example, emails, landing pages, and snippets. Assets are instances of asset types.|
|CloudBroker||Lionbridge’s server application for hosting the Lionbridge App for Marketo. As a SaaS (Software as a Service), Marketo does not support installing the Lionbridge App or any other external applications on its server. Therefore, the Lionbridge App is hosted on the Lionbridge CloudBroker server.|
|Freeway||The name of the Lionbridge translation portal for submitting content to and retrieving content from the Lionbridge translation provider.|
|FTP Server||File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used to transfer files from one host to another host over a TCP-based network, such as the Internet. Translation providers may receive and send files for translation using an FTP server.|
|Keys||The Lionbridge App uses keys to establish a secure, discrete connection between the app instance and the Platform.
Very important: Do not copy the CMS address keys to multiple instances, because this is a violation of the License Agreement. Using the same CMS address keys on multiple instances will cause the Lionbridge App or Connector to behave unexpectedly, which can result in lost translation content, orphaned projects, and inaccurate translation status reports. The Lionbridge Connector team will support technical issues caused by duplicating or incorrectly installing CMS address keys only on a time and materials basis.
|Lionbridge||The publisher of the Freeway translation portal and a translation provider. Users connect to the Freeway translation portal to submit content to and retrieve content from the Lionbridge translation provider.|
|Lionbridge App for Marketo (App)||The software that Lionbridge has developed and provides, which plugs into your Marketo environment to provide connectivity to CloudBroker and our hosted Platform. In this document it is referred to as the Lionbridge App. This is the software you set up as you work through this guide.|
|MT||Machine translation. The translation provider can be a machine translation service, such as Google Translate.|
|Producer||CMS or another content system that sends content or documents out for translation. In this case, this is Marketo.|
|Provider||A provider of translation services. The delivery of assets to the provider may be via an FTP server or a TMS connector.|
|SDL TMS||SDL Translation Management System™ is a global information management application.|
|Site||A site is your company’s implementation of the Lionbridge App for Marketo.|
|Support Asset||Supporting documents and their metadata. Support assets are not translated by the translation provider, but they provide helpful context for the translator.|
|TMS||Translation management system that the translation provider uses.|
2 - How the Lionbridge App Works with Marketo
The Lionbridge App is an important part of the Lionbridge translation solution.
The Lionbridge App is a LaunchPoint service within Marketo. Its functionality is displayed as a separate Web application.
As a SaaS (Software as a Service), Marketo does not support installing the Lionbridge App or any other external applications on its server. Therefore, the Lionbridge App is hosted on the Lionbridge CloudBroker server.
Your translation systems architecture might look like the configuration above. It may have additional content producers or translation providers, but the core concepts remain the same.
During implementation, the Lionbridge Connectors team works with you and your translation providers to configure and test the other elements of your translation solution, which are the connections to your translation providers' systems.
