    Welcome to the Item Translator

     One of the strongest techniques which can be used to increase sales and get more potential customers of the people from other regions is a multilingual website. Multi-language management is a cornerstone of Sitecore CMS, integrated into all aspects of content and site management. It allows you to build a multi-language website with almost the same effort as a single-language.

    But what if you want to translate an existing site with a thousands of pages, hundreds of templates and website sections? How to identify possible architecture(like "Shared" fields that actually should be translated) problems, or implementation bugs (hard-coded texts, displaying item name instead of a title and so on). 

    Sure, you can ask content-editors to spend few weeks in order to translate the site, test it, etc. But how about instant website translation using some online service? Read the full story here.

    This module allows you to translate Sitecore items instantly by clicking single button in back-end! You can use either Google Translate or Bing Translator, default translation provider is "Google", setting can be changed to "Bing" in Sitecore.SharedSource.ItemTranslator.config file. You can also add your own provider easily.

    To translate an item, navigate to it, select a language you want to translate it to:

    Item Translator dropdown

    And press "Translate Item/Tree". Translation time depends on number of items and their fields and may take a while.
