Smartling TMS

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


  1. Within Smartling, create a new user and provide its login credentials to your contact at LILT. For this example, we'll call the user "Smartling User".

  2. Create a workflow template that assigns this user as the linguist under the “translate” step. Share this with your LILT contact.

  3. Provide all languages and locales you’d like to have enabled as part of your workflow to your LILT contact

  4. Invite the LILT contact to your project needing translation


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

Project creation

Create a translation project in Smartling under the LILT Smartling User. LILT periodically checks for new projects assigned to the LILT Smartling User. When found, new content is automatically pulled into LILT to create new LILT Projects where the content can be translated.

Project completion

LILT periodically checks for LILT Projects marked as Done. When found, the content of these completed Projects is automatically sent back into Smartling and the workflow step is advanced for final review and approval in Smartling.

TM’s and TB’s

LILT will automatically pull in and update TM and TB’s from Smartling to ensure that your memories and termbase items are synced.
