3 Steps to Integrating SDL Trados Studio with KantanMT

SDLSDL Trados Studio is one of the most popular Computer Aided Translation (CAT) tools available on the market today, and is used by thousands of Language Service Providers (LSPs) and Translators worldwide.

To accommodate the high numbers of SDL Trados Studio users, the KantanMT development team released a new and improved KantanAPI Connector™, which is compatible with the latest versions of SDL Trados Studio (2011, 2014). The beauty of using this connector means you can quickly and easily configure both your SDL Trados Studio account and your KantanMT account, so there is a straightforward and seamless integration between both platforms.

As a member of the KantanMT Community, using SDL Trados Studio 2011 or 2014 you can launch and shutdown your KantanMT engines and retrieve translations on demand via the API from your KantanMT account, all you need to provide is your KantanMT account name, token and profile.

Once you have your KantanAPI Connector™ token, it’s a simple three step process to set up the integration.

Integrating SDL Trados Studio with KantanMT

Step 1: Login to the SDL Open Exchange App Store and Download the Installer

To download the app you will need a valid SDL Trados Studio license. Login to the SDL Translationzone App store using the same email address and password you use for SDL Trados Studio.

Step 2: Launch SDL Trados Studio

As soon as you have downloaded and installed the SDL Trados Studio installer from SDL’s Translationzone, you will need to launch Trados Studio.

Step 3: Select and Run the KantanAPI Connector

The KantanAPI Connector™ will appear in the list of plugins available for download, making it very straightforward to input your API token and select the profile that you want to use. The connector is completely free to download and requires the .NET Framework 3.5 to run correctly.

By using SDL Trados Studio you can easily access the KantanMT features available within the SDL Trados Studio interface based on your KantanMT subscription plan.

KantanAPI Connector Token

What do I do if I don’t have a KantanAPI Connector™ token?

Simply contact the KantanMT Sales Team (sales@kantanmt.com) to get your unique KantanAPI Connector token.

About KantanAPI Connector™ v2.0

The KantanAPI Connector™ allows you, and other members of the KantanMT Community to interact with the cloud based MT platform; KantanMT.com. You can submit individual segments or groups of segments for translation, and receive those translations immediately. The API operates as a REST web service, this means that a client program needs only to be able to perform HTTP GET requests to interact with the API. So, the API is not limited to interacting with clients developed using a particular programming language or operating system.
