The Diction connector
Our direct API

Our API, the Diction connector, enables us to automate order and delivery processes with e-commerce, DAM and PIM systems and CMS. The Diction connector simplifies the entire workflow and connects the Diction TMS with your system.

How do you connect to our API?

You can use any existing plug-in or add-on solutions for e-commerce, DAM and PIM systems and CMS to send your text to our system via the Diction connector. Our connector also supports most middleware software to connect your system to ours.

If necessary, Diction’s developers will also create a plug-in or mini-middleware solution that meets your requirements.

And, if you prefer us to connect to your in-house interface, we are more than happy to do so. Just call us and we can discuss the right solution.

E-commerce, DAM and PIM systems and CMS

We use our API to connect with CMS solutions such as WordPress, Drupal and TYPO3. You can of course also send your data to our connector via a DAM, PIM or e-commerce system. The choice is yours. Our Diction connector is compatible with most widely available plug-in and add-on solutions. Find out more here.

If you prefer a more old-school approach, we will also be more than happy to log in to your CMS and upload the translated or proofread content there.

Interchange and file formats

Interchange formats: Interchange formats are file types that can be sent between different operating systems and applications, making file transfers a lot less complicated. If you need a text translated, our system can process your file format and send it back to you.

We have a wealth of experience with interchange formats such as .xml and .xlf, and use them for our clients on a daily basis.

An .xlf file, also known as an XLIFF, is a bilingual file interchange format that is used by CAT tools to display the source and target texts next to one another.

However, .idml and .html can also be classed as interchange formats as the files are transmitted directly from one system to another, processed, and then transferred back.

File formats: We work with all standard file formats that can be sent to our TMS via the connector using plug-ins or add-ons. These are some of the formats that we can work with:

Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Office, Apache OpenOffice, Adobe InDesign, Adobe InCopy, Adobe Framemaker, Adobe PageMaker, Interleaf, QuarkXPress and more (.doc, .docx, .pdf, .xls, .xlsx, .csv, .ppt, .xml, .idml, .icml, .html, .sgml, .xml, .xlf, .tmx, .tbx, .svg, …)!

Get in touch if you have a text in a format that isn’t mentioned here.

Information security
From certification to our data centre

Diction’s Head of Information Communication Technology could talk for hours about the sophisticated system we use to ensure that our clients’ data are secure. In this video, he discusses the most important aspects of this system, including the no-nonsense approach that not only our clients from the legal and financial industries truly value.

What our clients say about us

Impressive technology

Diction has some real machine translation experts on their team. They managed to do exactly what we wanted by creating the kind of system we need. The Diction portal also makes our project management much easier. Diction tailored their standard version to our requirements with a single-sign-on (SSO) interface. Diction really does meet all of our needs when it comes to technology. We are really happy with them!

Roger RölliTeam Leader Marketing Services, AMAG Import Ltd

A true partnership
The team at Diction not only deliver excellent translations, they are also able to look at things from the client’s perspective. They truly understand what partnership is about.
