LILT + AWS S3 connector enables companies to automatically push and pull content between S3 and LILT. This saves you time by providing seamless localization while letting you continue to work in the systems you know.


During the process of onboarding a new client, LILT will help identify whether the AWS S3 integration can be used. If it can be used, LILT will set up the S3 integration for the client. From the client, we will utilize the following information:

  • S3 Access Key ID

  • S3 Secret Access Key

  • S3 Region

  • S3 Bucket name

Alternatively, the client can provide SFTP access to the bucket through the SSH key. LILT will organize this configuration with the client.


Once the connector is configured, content is automatically moved between LILT and S3 as outlined in the sections below.

Project creation

LILT periodically checks for new content on S3. 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 S3 into the buckets specified during configuration.


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 and can be as fast as 15 minutes.

LILT will only import supported files for translation; it will ignore unsupported file formats.
