How to enable and configure a MultiTrans plugin

In order to enable MultiTrans plugin for your content channel, go to the channel settings and open the 'Extensions' tab:

Here you will be able to set up your MultiTrans plugin via the attributes of the "MultiTrans TMS" integration group:

  • 'Enabled' - allows you to enable/disable MultiTrans integration plugin. By default, the option is hidden and becomes available once the plugin is configured. Don't forget to check the box once you finish the plugin setup.
  • 'Configuration' - indicates whether your MultiTrans plugin is configured or not. Configuration status has the 'Configure MultiTrans Integration' icon next to it.

To edit or set up your MultiTrans plugin from scratch, you must click the 'Configure MultiTrans Integration' icon.

Please fill in the following information in the 'MultiTrans Integration Configuration' form:

  • Multitrans server address - link to MultiTrans server.
  • User name - enter your MultiTrans Web Service username.* 
  • Password - enter your MultiTrans Web Service password.*


To obtain these credentials, contact your MultiTrans TMS administrator or MultiTrans Technical Support at Donnelley Financial Solutions.

Once you provide the "Login Info", click 'Next' to navigate to the next page:

This step is dedicated to language mapping setup. The 'System Languages' column represents the languages available in your content source (e.g. website, FTP server, etc.), while the 'MultiTrans Languages' column - those supported by MultiTrans. Map your system languages with the MultiTrans equivalents indicating the state (enabled/disabled). 'Enable All' and 'Disable All' shortcuts will allow you to do bulk operation if required. At this stage, you are able to take a step back in order to change the "Login Info". This can be done via the 'Back' button. When everything is mapped, click 'Next'.".

Next form is complex and contains several setting options.

Here you can configure:

  • "Allow delivery documents for incomplete requests" - can be enabled/disabled at user's convenience. If enabled, all completed documents will be delivered from MultiTrans to iLangL one by one even if the project to which they belong is not completed.

  • 'Enable navigation for project manager' - can be enabled/disabled at user's convenience. If enabled, you will be transferred to the MultiTrans as Project Manager.

  • 'Customer name'  - please enter full legal name of the company or organization that is requesting the services. Once done, click 'Show contacts'. If you entered customer's name correctly, you will see the list of available contacts that represent the company.

  • 'Select Contact' - contact is a designated company representative who is authorised to create requests and approve work. At least one contact must be enabled. Only enabled contacts will be available during content export. For your convenience, you can filter projects by contact in the project page .

  • "Select default contact" - once company contacts are selected, please choose the default one among them. The default contact will be displayed first during content export. His/her projects will be shown first in the project page.

  • "Source languages" - enable source languages you would like to use in your projects. You can also set up a default contact for each source language. This contact will be applied to all the projects with the respective source language by default. 

  • "Select Services" - select the services you would like to receive. Once any of the selected services is completed, the document will be available for import to your website. The selected service must contain target document when completed in MultiTrans. On the project page you will be able to filter your projects by service. 
  • "Default Service" -  once you select the set of required services, please set one of them as default. Projects for a default service will be shown first in the project page.

  • "IP Filter List" - allows you to limit access to your projects to user/-s with particular IP address. In order to do this, click 'New IP Filter' button and enter the IP address and mask host. Access will be provided for the selected pool of addresses only.

If unauthorised user tries to open a project page, they will see the following message: 'Your IP address 'x.x.x.x' is not allowed'.

If the filter was not created, all users with direct link to the project page will have access to it.

  • "Custom CSS" - you can apply CSS styles to change the look of the projects page according to your custom design.

When configuration is ready, click "Next" and proceed to the last step of the setup: confirmation.

The 'Confirmation' step sums up all the information you provided and allows you to get a final overview before integration is set. If anything requires correction, you can go back via the 'Back' button. If information is correct, click 'Submit' to save 'MultiTrans Integration Configuration'.

Once you submit the form, you will be returned to the 'Extensions' tab:
