The standard ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) pattern can be used to translate database content. Simple scripts can export data from the database into files, send them to Lionbridge for translation, and then import translated data back into the database. These operations can be scheduled by standard tools such as cron.

Adding localization to your software development lifecycle

Any custom “Hot Folder” system can be easily set up using the Content CLI. Hot Folders can be fed via shared drives, FTP, DropBox, etc. and monitored by scheduled scripts.
