Clay Tablet offers a powerful combination of plug-in Connectors and a cloud-based central Platform which, when combined, provide a seamlessly integrated and fully automated way of moving content to and from your translation providers and technologies.
Connectors easily plug in to your CMS or TMS and provide unparalleled features to make sending and retrieving content fast and simple. For CMS’s especially, we provide rich User Interface upgrades allowing you to send content for translation in a single click.
The Platform allows any of these Connectors to interact and routes content as needed, based on parameters like language pair, or content type. And this platform uses advanced technologies to ensure secure, reliable content delivery instantly.
This approach has several technical and strategic benefits.
Mix and Match Systems: You can mix and match any CMS with any translation technology, such as a tms, an MT server or a simple FTP server. You can even link several systems together in a complex, fully integrated environment.
Avoid Integration Lock-in: Unlike captive or custom connections, the Clay Tablet approach allows you to keep the technologies you have, and choose the translation solutions you want. Need to migrate to a new CMS? Want to add another LSP? No problem! Just add another connection.
Reduce your total-cost-of-ownership (TCO): IT folks know that keeping an integrated environment running over the long-haul is a headache. Every time even one system changes version, the whole integration has to be reviewed. But with Clay Tablet – that’s never an issue. The “spoke and hub” architecture (like and enterprise services bus for the translation process) means that if one system changes – you only have to update that one connection point. And usually, Clay Tablet has already taken care of that for you – tight partnerships with CMS and TMS vendors ensure “day zero” support of any new version.
