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 in Strings are sent to TMS for translation and sent back to Strings after translation.

Both a TMS and a Strings subscription are required.

Use Cases

There are a number of use cases for the connector:

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

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

  • Use Automated Project 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 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).
