Welcome to the Connector for Veeva Vault

Welcome to the Lionbridge Connector for Veeva Vault (“Connector”) version 1.0.0. The Connector enables you to manage the translation lifecycle effectively in Veeva Vault. The Connector facilitates built-in review work-flows in which, the files or documents pass through a review workflow before and after the translation. The translations are done quick and easy with this Connector.

1 - The Translation Lifecycle

The translation lifecycle is the broad process of selecting content, sending it out for translation, and then receiving the translated content back from translation.

This set of steps usually fits inside a larger, more general process called the content lifecycle, which is the process of creating, reviewing, editing, approving, and publishing content.

When you consider the translation lifecycle and the content lifecycle together, you have the global content value chain, which is the strategy for managing multilingual content.

Remember that localizing content is a subset of steps in the broader content lifecycle. This will improve your focus on key localization considerations, improve processes, and keep all content stakeholders included. Together, this results in better content management.

2 - How the Connector Helps You Manage Your Translation Lifecycle

The Lionbridge Connector for Veeva Vault (Connector) is a plug-in module for Veeva Vault. The Connector features enable you to select, send, monitor, and retrieve content for translation into any language Veeva Vault supports.

These features automate the process, which reduces the effort and time required to export and re-import content that needs to be localized. This is very helpful when translating large volumes of content or ensuring that translated content is quickly re-imported to meet deadlines.

When you use the Connector, you manage your translation lifecycle entirely within the Veeva Vault:

  1. The Connector exports your content from Veeva Vault in XML format and delivers these content files to the Content API Platform.
  2. The Content API Platform delivers your content to your translation providers, based on routing rules that your company chooses and the Lionbridge Connector Team implements.
  3. When the translated content is ready, the Content API retrieves it from your translators and delivers it to the Connector.
  4. The Connector automatically re-imports the content into the correct location in Veeva Vault.

You can then review, revise, reject, or publish the translated content as needed.

Note: Neither the Connector nor the Content API performs any translation. Similarly, the Lionbridge Connector Team does not provide any translation services. Your company chooses the translation provider that performs the translation.
