Nobody who already counts their blessings for the accessibility of Slack needs to be introduced to this simple, yet innovative tool. To those, who haven’t heard about the tool that helps global teams work together, we have good news – with this blog post you can quickly catch up!
Slack is a collaboration chat tool used both in and out of organizations to help teams communicate and coordinate in a more effective manner. It does so by segregating conversations into channels which can be specialized for different uses as needed. This minimizes noise and allows chats to stay on topic.
Slack was also the first hosted app to allow integrations on its platform. Now, it comes with a collection of apps and integrations that makes it much more powerful and useful than ordinary messengers. This is what gave Slack its significant growth rate. And now, we are proud to introduce you to Text United Slack integration that will upgrade your translation project workflow.
Text United Slack Integration
Our integration with Slack creates a locked channel exclusively for team members like translators, proofreaders, and in-country reviewers who can log in to the channel from the translation task. When one of them leaves comments within the project, an automated Slack message is generated with the link to the segment where the comment has been left.
This creates the possibility of managing the projects and observing their progress in the real-time while also enabling team members to communicate better.
How does Slack integrate with Text United?
Slack’s integration with Text United is simple and efficient, allowing for easy collaboration and a unified space for exchanging messages for a project. The integration works on a project level. After you connect to your Slack workplace and use your credentials to log in, you are good to go.
Simply navigate to your project details and click on the Connect now button for Slack integration.
The next step is for your team members to login from their side as well. They can connect to Slack by entering their own credentials in the task overview.
Text United will automatically create a new channel in your Slack workspace for the connected project.
For any interactions on the project, a new notification will be generated. For example:
- The reviewer leaves a comment for a particular segment stating that the translation needs to be corrected
- The whole team receives the notification on Slack
- The translator clicks on the notification link and is redirected to the segment in question
- The translator can leave a comment to say that they have corrected the segment, and the whole team will be notified about it
- The team can use the channel to further discuss anything related to the project workflow
An integrated Text United Slack channel looks like this:
