Translation Database Size Requirements
The required size of the database depends on the volume of translation you anticipate. When the database is used only for translation-related data, 100MB is usually adequate. However, by default, the Lionbridge Connector backs up translation data, which it uses to support the Translation Correction and Update Remote TM features. For descriptions of these features, refer to the Lionbridge Connector for Sitecore User Guide.
- If you keep the default setting of backing up data so that you can use these features, you may need to increase the size of the database by 50 to 100 percent to support the backup.
- If you do not want to back up data, you do not need to increase the size of the database.
Note: To prevent the Connector from backing up translation-related data, you modify the ClayTablet.BackupTranslationData setting, described in Configuring Database Settings.
You can use the Connector to delete the translation-backup database at any time from the Sitecore Content Editor, however the relevant Connector features will not work properly. For instructions on deleting the backup, refer to the Lionbridge Connector for Sitecore User Guide.
