Lilt + GitHub connector enables companies to automatically push and pull content between GitHub and Lilt. This saves you time by providing seamless localization while letting you continue to work in the systems you know.

  • Submission via GitHub: Creating or updating content in GitHub automatically creates a Job in Lilt containing the source content that needs to be translated.
  • Translation Method: During configuration, the user can specify the desired workflow:
    1. Instant Translation: GitHub content is immediately localized into any desired language using Machine Translation (MT).
    2. Verified Translation: Send GitHub content to Lilt's in-house translators for localization.
    3. Instant + Verified Translation: Lilt immediately returns localized GitHub content, while simultaneously sending the content to Lilt's in-house translators for localization.
  • Deliver to GitHub: When a Lilt Job is finished, the localized content is automatically delivered to GitHub.

Configuration

During the process of onboarding a new client, Lilt will help identify whether the GitHub integration can be used. If it can be used, Lilt will set up the GitHub integration for the client.

Workflow

Once the connector is configured, content is automatically moved between Lilt and GitHub as outlined in the sections below.

Project creation

Lilt periodically checks for new content on GitHub. When new content is detected, Lilt Projects are automatically created for the content to be translated.

Project completion

Lilt periodically checks for completed Lilt Projects. Completed Project content is automatically pushed back to GitHub into the folders specified during configuration.

Limitations

Lilt does not continuously check for new content; it only periodically checks for new content and completed Projects. The frequency that Lilt checks for content is determined when the connector is set up.
