Introduction to Feeds for Translations

To have a smoother translations process when working with multiple languages, you can optimize the translation process for both efficiency and timeliness. You can utilise a Google Sheet and connect it as a feed source. This is an easy way for your translation team to work with multiple translations from just one sheet. Once you have connected it, manage your translations across your Creative Set versions with just a few clicks.

Setting up the Google Sheet

  1. Begin by creating a new Google Sheet.

  2. On the first row, enter the desired field names. Ensure each column has a unique identifier. Include a "Language" column to facilitate language selection for different versions in Creative Studio.

  3. Starting from the second row onwards, enter your copy and specify one language per row.

Configuring the Google Sheet as a Feed in Bannerflow and integrating the Feed in Creative Studio

  1. Now set up your Google Sheet as a feed in the Bannerflow feeds module. Once the feed is set up in Bannerflow, navigate to Creative Studio. You can either access an existing Creative Set or create a new one.

  2. In the design view, locate the "Dynamic Content" tool and select the feed you've set up.

  3. Drag & drop the placeholders on to the canvas. The placeholder will contain the text values that you have entered in the Google Sheet. You can add styling to the text as usual.

Language Filtering

  1. To filter out a specific language from the Google Sheet for each language version in Creative Studio, add the "Feed Selector" widget to the canvas. In the Widget Properties, select the column in the feed from which to filter values. For instance, if using the English ("EN") value from the "Language" column, select accordingly. Don't forget to specify the feed source.

  2. Save your progress and return to the Manage View. All placeholder text will now appear in the translation panel and will be sourced from the feed. Use the Feed Selector to filter the desired language.

  3. When creating a new language version, simply filter your desired language from the translation panel by adjusting the value in the "Filter Value" field.
