#Citrix Confidential Do Not DistributeBut A traditional LSP solution would not work We could not implement a TMS We needed a fast approach We wanted a MLSP to work with We wanted an innovative technical solution and good linguistic support

#Citrix Confidential Do Not DistributeVendor/Software Evaluation ProcessChoice became a Proxy based solutionNot many vendors offer this kind of solutionEvaluation based on:Range of languagesMarket experienceFlexibility for solution customization

#Citrix Confidential Do Not DistributeProxy-based Website Translation The BasicsThe proxy uses a translation memory to replace source segments for their translation in real-timeThe translation memory is pre-populated with all segments that have been spidered and translated ahead of timeTranslatable images are swapped out for their translated versionText expansion issues are addressed through modification of the HTML code or style sheet overrides

www.citrix.frproxy server#Citrix Confidential Do Not DistributeThe Citrix Solution

The Corporate master site is the source for page styles, content and layout

Localized full versions of the site are deliveredgloballyUn-translated content passes through untouched yet with a transformed url.Translators execute a first translation and create an initial translation memory. On subsequent iterations they are also assigned any new content identified by the spider.Regional Citrix reviewers perform in-context reviews and make edits directly to the Translation Memory with an on-page review tool.

The Proxy translates the site on the fly. Looks into the translation memory and swaps out matched text, images and documentsTranslation Memory

Content capture: All pages in scope are spidered and cached weekly, capturing all new content required to have pages fully translated

#Citrix Confidential Do Not Distribute19Sophisticated RequirementsAvoid English Bleed on in-scope pages: Caching is enabledSnapshot of pages is taken during the maintenance spiderCache is only deployed on live servers when the translations are ready=> No missing translation in pages being pushed livePredictable behavior for out of scope pages: Translation vs TransformationCitrix requirement: a page should either be fully translated, or revert to just the navigation and footer translation if notAnti-bleed: Defines an area of the page that requires full translation. If not all the segments are available, the whole area is reverted to English, leaving the rest of the page (Navigation, Footer, Promotions) translated.Compliance with new EU privacy guidelines: removal of all tracking cookiesRemoval or hiding of specific US centric contentCustomization of Marketing forms and social sites links

#Citrix Confidential Do Not Distributeand Considerations Mixed language experience top 350 pages translated Local/regional content limited Videos, PDF resources are out of translation scope Modulating translations depending on context is possible but fragile and time consuming to implement Frequency of citrix.com updates could become sub-optimal for a proxy solution Legacy issues (Vanity, CMS, URL formats) on citrix.com can make the proxy brittle Ongoing corporate and regional resources required to onboard and maintain new countries
