[Translation API & Connectors ]

Automating Your Translations and Transcripts

Translation API and connectors, automating your translations and transcripts

REST APIs enable information systems to exchange data in a standardised, automated and encrypted manner. Ubiqus now offers two REST APIs (one of which is a machine translation API) available to our customers. Better still, we can integrate our features into market-leading software so that our customers can take advantage not only of our real-time automatic translation but also our automatic transcription (speech to text) capabilities.

Find out how to integrate Ubiqus solutions into your digital transformation:

  • Automatic website translation, on the fly
  • High-volume data sharing, safely and automatically
  • Effortless reintegration of translated content
  • Automatic video transcription

Ubiqus has developed two types of APIs, for two different purposes

Ubiqus has developed two REST APIs:

  • The automatic translation API (NMT API) dedicated to translating word segments on the fly and in real time
  • An Order Management API, which can be used either to process entire files (as opposed to segments) in automatic translation or automatic transcription mode, or to deliver a service via one of our professionals.

When should you interface with the Ubiqus Automatic Translation API?

With this API, our neural translation engines at last become available to customers, who can use them to translate short segments in real time. This makes them the perfect choice for:

  • E-commerce sites wishing to automatically translate their product fact sheets
  • Chat-bot developers interested in branching out into new markets

When should you interface with the Ubiqus Order Management API?

This API can do almost anything. It can be used to place orders for translations as well as transcriptions (speech to text). What’s more, for each service, it offers users the choice between a machine-run service, or one carried out by a qualified professional.

  • Interfacing with Ubiqus if your CMS does not display an API or if your site has been augmented with multiple specific upgrades
  • Translating web pages in high volumes and on a regular basis
  • Requesting transcriptions of your audio or video recordings
  • Making one of the leading players on the market and in neural translation part of your application

Incorporating a web page translation service into your multilingual CMS

How can you automate interactions on web pages you wish to have translated?  

Some content management tools (commonly referred to as CMS) offer to manage all your site’s language versions, as the default option. This is a good thing!
In this case, Ubiqus will come and interface with the CMS. We have recently completed connections with Hubspot, WPML and AEM. We took advantage of the API (programming interface) or development kit (SDK) provided by the software publishers to make our website translation service available to our customers.

Plug your CMS’ back-office into Ubiqus translation

This means that, if your site uses Hubspot, for instance, all you need is for an experienced user to retrieve the unique identification API key to your site (available in the back office) and address it to us. We will then define a collaborative process to identify the URLs that need to be translated and tell you how to prepare the target pages so that the translated content can be easily incorporated.

The benefits of direct login to the CMS  

Using the connector developed by Ubiqus (with Hubspot, for instance), a webmaster can:

  • Automate data exchanges => content selection is facilitated
  • Secure exchanges => all API logins are encrypted
  • Effortlessly reintegrate translated content

The CMSs logged into our translation API are:

Ubiqus translation & transcription is available in business software, such as Relativity

Can business software be interfaced with a Ubiqus API? 

Many specialised software suites can also handle everyday business tasks in users’ operations. One good example is the legal e-discovery activity carried out at certain law firms. Using specialised software, like Relativity, professionals can process very large quantities of documents, in a controlled and secured environment. The rigorous analysis carried out guarantees them that the courts will be presented only with the materials worthy of being taken into consideration.
The good news is: Ubiqus API is already integrated in Relativity thanks to our Ubiqus for Relativity plug-in!

Plug Ubiqus services into Relativity back-office

Whether a Relativity user wants to translate automatically documents in foreign languages or transcribe recordings or videos in English, French and other languages, Ubiqus for Relativity has the answer!
– Activate the Ubiqus plug-in (compatible 9.7+ and RelativityOne) into the Relativity software,
– select and
– order the type of service needed : translation or transcription.

The benefits of direct connection to Relativity 

Thanks to the Ubiqus plug-in available in Relativity, users can:

  • Initiate all their translation or transcription tasks without ever leaving their secure environment
  • Use our state of the artneural machine translation, including our multilingual engine for source texts in multiple languages
  • Have audio and video files transcribed automatically and benefit from our improved player
