NEW [MT profiles] Create a meta connector profile to process your MT requests, where each language pair can use a dedicated MT engines

You can now use the meta connector profile to map your Wordbee languages and existing MT profiles, making it possible to target explicit language locales. This is a major upgrade since previously MT systems in Wordbee Translator were relying on the languages supported by the MT provider (Google, Microsoft, etc). These languages are defined in a general way and don't offer any further customization, which limited the use you could do in your projects when handling automated requests containing different locales.
Meta connectors will help you defining a more accurate approach to machine translation and further train and exploit your MT engines. Like any other MT profile, the meta connector is compatible with 3rd party providers (Microsoft, Google, etc.) as well as with custom MT systems.

Learn more about this feature in the documentation. https://documents.wordbee.com/x/6gGFAQ
