How to translate an email template with Stripo?

First of all, you should activate and tune the "Localization" option itself.

You can do this in two ways, inside "Groups or Projects settings".

What is the difference between these ways?

All configurations from the Group can be inherited then by any project within this group.

This is a really convenient way to manage all settings in one place (Groups). Still, you'll be able to rearrange any Project's settings additionally in its own settings.

Let's consider the Group's settings way first:

  • Switch to the "Workspace" tab, proceed to "Groups", then choose the needed group;

  • Next, you need to activate the "Localization" option itself;

  • After that, you will see the next features: "Default language", "Additional language(s)" and Add Links to Vendor Translate;

  • Pick up the default language in which you write emails and choose the languages available for translation from the list;

  • Now, you should go to the Project you're going to use the Translation option and restore the adjustments to it from the parent group;

  • Click on the "Use the information" sentence;

  • Now, you should see that the data have to be inherited from the General Group.

Alright, we're done with the Preparations part, and now, if you've chosen the Group's settings way, you can simply skip the next step and jump to the Translations part itself.

Now, let's consider the Project's settings way:

If you decided to tune the Project itself, without inheritation from the Group, you should previously choose the needed Project.

Then, perform all the actions described above for Groups (activate the "Localization" option and set Default and Additional languages).

Good job, you're on the half of the way to translate your emails :)

The translations part:

After entering the template, you will see the newly available icon on the top panel.

  • By clicking on it, you'll see the already applied Original message language of the email and the Translations option;

  • Under the Translations option, you will be able to edit languages and confirm them;

  • Furthermore, you are able to "add new languages";

  • Besides, you can translate your email template in two ways:

Machine Translate: the translation process will be executed using Google Translate.
Human-generated translations: for manual modifications, the options available are Excel or JSON format.

  • Once you determined you may click on the "Translate" button;

After the Google Translation finished, at the bottom of the page, you will see a pop-up window with the text: Translations have been uploaded successfully.

Important note: If you wish to translate an email template containing a synchronized module, please be aware that the synchronized module will not be translated while it remains in “SYNC ON” mode.

  • After that, you will be able to open any translation by clicking on the needed one. The template will be updated, and you will see a particular language version of the email;

Also, the translations are not perfect at this stage, so it is better to check them because the usual Google translator is used.

  • If you still need to make manual corrections - you can choose the Excel or JSON file (all steps are the same for both), and after filling the file with translations for each language, re-upload it to the system;

How to apply changes to the translated template?

If you would like to make changes in the already translated templates for doing this, you should:

  • switch to the Original message language;

  • make necessary changes in it and click on the "Translate" button once again;

  • a new window will pop up where you will have 2 options;

Let's look at the difference between these two options:

The "Recreate Template" function will apply all changes to blocks/containers/structures, etc. if you want to add or remove something for all translation templates.

The "Apply translations" function will make changes only in text blocks to all translation templates.

Important to note:

Each application of these two functions ("Apply translations" and "Recreate Template") during translation will count as one translation per one language version.

At the moment, the translation limit is 2000 translations per month.

How to export all the language versions?

While exporting, you are able to choose the versions you want to export (primary or additional. Just don't forget to specify the required export version.

Important to note: Each email's language version will be considered a new export when exporting.
