Hello community, I have a request from a customer, he wishes to automate a huge part of his translation process by creating a web UI that his customers can use to create Trados projects, now, my question is the following: Is there some sort of prebuilt tool/licence (like a REST API or something similar) that allows someone to spin up/build their own in-house solution for doing operations with Trados (more specifically converting files to sdlxliff and turn them back to the original format after the project was processed)?
One of the main and most important requirements is that the data must stay in-house, cannot be shared at any moment with any provider in the cloud, so a cloud solution is not permitted.
Thanks a lot in advanced,
I'm not sure if you're aware of SDL Trados Groupshare (https://www.sdl.com/software-and-services/translation-software/project-management/sdl-trados-groupshare/). It has it's own Rest API…
Yes, Groupshare is an on-premise solution.
I'm not sure if you're aware of SDL Trados Groupshare (https://www.sdl.com/software-and-services/translation-software/project-management/sdl-trados-groupshare/). It has it's own Rest API that is used also by the product to build it's own Web UI. Also Groupshare's Rest API is succesfully used by different integrators to build their own custom UI / workflow.
As your customer wants a web UI and SDL Trados Studio is a desktop product you would need a solution to manage the resources stored in Studio (projects, TM, etc) and to be able to expose that on a server to the outside world. This is what Groupshare is for (and many more).
I see, can I host a version of Groupshare on-premise as well? If so, that would be the best solution for me, thanks a lot for pointing me in that direction :)
There is one "little" catch - GroupShare is expensive as hell...
And building your own solution on top of Studio API is a no-go from licensing perspective... so you're basically screwed ;-)
