Job Sync

Strings integration is on the job level and connects Phrase TMS and Phrase Strings. The integration allows the connection of translation jobs.

Jobs created and started in Strings with In progress status can be imported to TMS for translation, and sent back to Strings after translation. To move content between both products, TMS project language and Strings job locale codes must match.

Both a TMS and a Strings subscription are required.

ICU messages

When sending Strings jobs containing ICU messages to TMS for translation, enable the Parse ICU messages option in the XLIFF 2.0 file import settings or in the TMS project templates.

CLDR plural forms

CLDR plural forms are not supported. Segments containing CLDR plural forms will not be parsed when sent from Strings to TMS and will appear as JSON snippets in the CAT editors.

Use Cases

There are a number of use cases for the connector:

  • TMS Project managers can add files directly to TMS projects from an online repository.

  • Set up the TMS submitter portal to allow Submitters to add files to requests directly from the online repository.

  • Use TMS automated [roject creation (APC) to have new projects automatically created when a change in the last modified date is detected for monitored files or a folder.

    • Selected files are imported the very first time APC runs.

  • The TMS connector API can be used to automate steps otherwise performed manually through the UI. Webhooks can be used to have 3rd party systems notified about certain events (for example, a job status change).
