1.1.2 - How the Connector Works with Oracle Content and Experience
The Lionbridge Connector (Connector) is an important part of the Lionbridge translation solution.
The Connector is installed on the Oracle Content and Experience (OCE) cloud-based content hub. Its functionality is displayed to the users as part of OCE.

To add the Connector and configure it to work with Oracle Content and Experience (OCE), you complete the following general steps:
Create a translation connector in OCE. For detailed instructions, see Creating a Translation Connector in Oracle Content and Experience.
Create a localization policy, which defines whether a translation is required and if so, what are the required and optional languages for assets. For a detailed description and instructions, refer to the OCE documentation at: https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/content-cloud/managing-assets/create-localization-policies.html.
Add the localization policy you just created to a publishing channel, which determines the release rules applied to items in a repository. For detailed instructions, refer to the OCE documentation at: https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/content-cloud/managing-assets/create-and-share-publishing-channels.html.
Create or edit a repository, which enables you to manage all the assets you need for one purpose in one place.
In the Translation Connectors dropdown list, select the translation connector you created in step 1, above.
In the Publishing Channels dropdown list, select the publishing channel you created or edited in step 3, above.
For detailed instructions, refer to the OCE documentation at: https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/content-cloud/managing-assets/create-and-manage-asset-repositories.html.
When the configuration is complete, OCE users can start using the Connector to manage translations. For detailed instructions, refer to the OCE documentation.
