SmartSimple provides for basic language translation of data entered into text fields.

  • This feature only works for Plain Text fields and does not work for Rich Text Fields.
  • The translation provided should be considered as a "working" translation only and not suitable for uses where you need a high quality translation.
  • This feature is supported through the integration with Google Translate services.

Globally Enabling the Translate Feature

The feature will need to be switched on in the Global Settings.
