The Wordbee Beebox Connector for Drupal makes translating content an efficient and user-friendly process. The connector lets you filter and select content for translation, send content to your in-house translation team or external Language Service Provider, receive finished translations back, and have your Drupal site updated with just a click.



Translation capabilities:

  • Any content: Drupal nodes, commercial products, fields, taxonomy, etc.
  • Absolutely no manual export or import of translation files required. All jobs are completed using web services.
  • Send single pages or complete sites for translation in one click.
  • Supports multiple source languages and translation workflows at the same time.
  • Integrates with the Drupal Translation Management Tool (TMGMT)
  • Supports all TMGMT content selection and job tracking functionalities.
  • Isolates the HTML markup to protect against unintentional tampering.
  • Connects to your preferred translation service providers, in-house teams, or TMS.
  • Easy tracking of running translation requests.
  • Automatically insert completed translations back into the right places.

Translation job management. Wordbee Beebox exchanges work with your translation team or service provider.

Translation review and editing:

  • Preview and approve translations prior to publishing updated content inside Drupal.
  • Translations can be rejected and resent for translation, if necessary.

Translation cost optimization:

  • Automatically identifies if a sentence or paragraph has been translated in the past. The system automatically reuses the past translations and does not send that content again to your translation provider.
  • Automatically identifies repeating sentences and paragraphs in new translation requests and sends these only once for translation. This may lead to an overall translation volume reduction of 20% or more. Your translation provider receives unique content only (option).
  • If your site has already been translated, you can have your existing translations aligned and submitted to your translation team for approval for future use (translation memories).


  • Works with Drupal versions 7.x, 8.x., 9.0
  • Prerequisites: Installed TMGMT (Drupal Translation Manager) module.

The module installs a "Translator" that talks to a Beebox server and your translation team/provider.


The connector is a regular Drupal module and is installed from the Drupal Modules page. The module adds a "Translator" used by the Drupal Translation Manager.

The connector then talks to the Beebox middleware using the HTTP protocol. The Beebox server is installed at the Drupal site owner's premises, a web agency, or a language service provider. A single Beebox server can connect any number of content management systems with any number of TMS'es or translation teams. Wordbee can provide a list of LSPs who already operate a Beebox server. 

To support multiple source languages or translation workflows, create/request a Beebox project per project and register each as a "translator" in Drupal.

Both Beebox Connector for Drupal and Beebox are off-the-shelf products. Installation and configuration support can be provided by Wordbee upon request.
