OHT Integration

Integrate your Crowdin projects with One Hour Translation (OHT) agency and allow OHT translators to work with translation files in Crowdin Editor.

The integration provides:

  • Instant synchronization of localization content from Crowdin to OHT using Crowdin tasks.
  • Possibility for OHT translators to easily access and work in Crowdin Editor.
  • 2-way synchronization of comments between OHT and Crowdin.

Connecting OHT with Crowdin

You need to have a Customer account in OHT to enable integration and sufficient Credit Balance so you can use OHT translation services. Register at One Hour Translation if you don’t have an account yet.

Follow these steps to establish the connection:

  1. Log in to Crowdin and open Settings of the project you need to translate.
  2. Go to Vendors > One Hour Translation.
  3. Click Connect Account. Connect OHT
  4. Enter Public Key and Secret Key from the OHT API keys tab. Click Submit Keys. Connect OHT

Creating Tasks for Content Synchronization

To send the localization content to OHT, you need to create tasks in the Crowdin project. Follow these step-by-step instructions for task creation:

  1. Click Create Task using the Tasks tab or straight from the OHT integration window using the Vendors tab. Create Task
  2. Set the task parameters:
    • Task Name – specify the name of the task that will be visible for OHT translators
    • Description (optional) – add more details about the task that might be useful for OHT translators
    • Type – choose Translate by vendor
    • Translation Vendor – choose OneHourTranslation
    • Expertise – define the expertise that best suits your project
    • Strings – define if all untranslated strings should be available for translation or only those that were modified within a specific period
    • Filter by labels – define needed labels if you’d like to send for translation only some specific set of strings
    • Files – select the files that should be translated
    • Languages – select translation languages (a separate task will be created for each selected language)
  3. Click Create Task for project files to be sent to OHT.

In case you change the task’s name or description or update the files selected for the existing task, it won’t be re-synchronized with OHT.

Процесс перевода

When the task is created, it’s automatically sent to OHT and visible to OHT translators in the Open Projects tab. OHT translator will need to Start Project and then use the Open Workbench button to access Crowdin Editor. Start Project

A translator will be logged in Crowdin with OHT profile data to work on content localization. As soon as translation starts, the related task in Crowdin will automatically move to the In Progress status. And when the translations are finished (marked Completed on the OHT side) task will gain Done status in Crowdin.

Discussions and Comments

If you need to add additional details to an already created task, you can add Comments. Комментарии

Comments are synchronized with OHT so that a translator can see them in the Customer Discussion section and reply if needed. Translator messages left in the Customer Discussion section in the OHT project are also automatically sent to Crowdin and shown in the Comments section inside the Crowdin task.
