Lilt can integrate with Slack to enable localization managers, project managers, translators, and reviewers to effectively coordinate and communicate together. Localization teams use Lilt + Slack to quickly share updates, share style guides, discuss terminology, ask translation questions, and more.
During the process of onboarding a new client, Lilt will help identify whether the Slack integration can be used. If it can be used, Lilt will set up the Slack integration for the client.
Connecting Lilt Projects and Slack Channels
Slack Channels can be associated with both new and existing Lilt Projects.
Assign a Slack Channel to a new Lilt Project: When creating a new Lilt Project, you can assign it to a Slack Channel by clicking the
Select Slack Channel button and choosing the desired Slack Channel.
Assign a Slack Channel to an existing Lilt Project: To assign a Slack Channel to an existing Project, select the
more details "i" button on the Project, and then choose the desired Slack Channel.
Leaving comments in Lilt and Slack
Once a Project has been connected to a Slack Channel, Comments in Lilt will automatically be sent to Slack. The Slack comment will include:
- Project Name
- Document Name
- Segment Number
Each item in the Slack comment is a link that will take you to the corresponding Project, Document, or Segment in Lilt.
To respond to comments, you can either leave a comment in Lilt or select from a set of default responses in Slack, which will be sent back to Lilt.
