We're happy that you chose Scroll Translations for translating and managing your Confluence content in multiple languages.

In a few simple steps, this guide demonstrates how to translate content in Confluence.

First steps

Make sure that a user with Space Administrator, Doc-Admin or Confluence Administrator permissions has configured default and target languages for this space.

Translate a page

Let's start out by translating a Confluence page using Scroll Translations, follow the steps below:

  1. Create a new page containing some dummy content (a few words for the title and content is fine), just for use in this guide.
  2. Select a target language in the language picker. In this example, the default language for the space is German (as you can see, the original content is in German), and the target language is English.

    The content is still in the original language as we haven't started translating it yet.
  3. To get translating, click the Translate button (this replaces the Edit button in target language pages). You'll see that the normal Confluence editor has been replaced by a side-by-side translation editor, with the source language on the left and the target language on the right.

    Let's 'translate' the page by entering Translated title for the title, and Translated content for the content.
  4. Because we've translated the whole page, we'll save the translation as Complete.
  5. Now, if you click the translation status in the page byline, you'll see that the translation is now in the Complete state, indicated by a green check.

Congratulations, you've successfully translated your first page using Scroll Translations!

Next steps

If you want to translate your content in a Translation Management System (TMS), you can also export your Confluence content and work on it in your TMS.
