How to setup auto-translation of nodes using Rules and Tmgmt

This how-to guide describes how to set up automatic machine-based translations for content on a Drupal site. Whenever a node is created, translation jobs will be created for every language specified, and depending on how you set up your translator, you should be able to completely automate the translation process. For this project we are using SDL, but you should be able to use other translators.

1. Download and enable the translation management modules. This can be done through Drush or through the modules interface in drupal.

Beyond Marketing: Why Digital Disruption Requires a Deeper Transformation

Indéfini

The forces of digital disruption have toppled established business models, magnified the significance of digital channels and competences, and initiated the “customer-centric era.” Chief marketing officers (CMOs) and their marketing organizations would seem to be ideally positioned to lead the organizational response to these disruptions. Marketing typically owns the customer relationship and has developed sophisticated methods for understanding and communicating with customers.

How Acquia Brought Drupal to the Enterprise [Sept. 18, 2014]

Dries Buytaert built what would become the open source software Drupal in his dorm room at the University of Antwerp in Belgium. What started as an experiment to build an intranet message board for his friends eventually turned into the open source software behind Drupal, and launched in 2001.

Drupal quickly grew, now boasts more than one million participants in its open source community online. In addition to a spike in individual users, Buytaert began to see an uptick in Drupal adoption by big businesses and large nonprofit organizations.

While working on his research dissertation, Buytaert began providing support to companies that had adopted the Drupal software. He recalled one particular evening when, after he was approached by a company in the UK for help, he spent the entire night working to resolve the issues it was having.

"That was my ah-ha moment," Buytaert said. "I realized there was a big opportunity to help organizations accelerate their adoption of Drupal and be successful."

Buytaert founded Acquia with Jay Batson in 2007 after the pair were introduced by Michael Skok, a partner at North Bridge Venture Networks. Acquia provides enterprise products, services, and support for Drupal, with the goal of accelerating Drupal adoption among enterprise users. Currently, Acquia works with brands such as Pinterest, Mercedes Benz, Warner Music Group, and Stanford University.

Along with businesses and nonprofits, governmental sites now run on Drupal too. The official White House site has a Drupal initiative, and Acquia published a case study on data.gov.uk, an open data project started by the UK government.

While some enterprises are hesitant to embrace open source, Buytaert believes that the collaborative software development it provides is what has kept Acquia innovative. His hope is that Acquia can be a role model for entrepreneurs with similar aspirations.

The product set
Acquia's product set aims help enterprises successfully use Drupal. The company's offerings begin with Acquia Cloud, the company's platform-as-a-service that provides cloud solutions and development tools. Buytaert said that it includes pre-built testing solutions, an API for creating custom tests, and a tool called Acquia Insight.

Acquia + You: Keeping Sites Online and Performant

On Acquia’s Support team, we see all sorts of issues every day. Many are unique to the particular purpose and configuration of a site, but there are a variety of issues that can appear on even the most well-built and meticulously maintained web applications. We see these often enough that they are among the first things we look for when a site goes down or begins to experience specific symptoms, and we are often able to resolve them quickly precisely because we have learned from experience what will and what will not work.

Transforming the Media and Entertainment Industry with Drupal

I’ll admit it. I was initially a skeptic.

My colleague at NBCUniversal, Chris Herring, really wanted me to attend DrupalCon Chicago. It was 2011, and many of the developers and product managers across NBCUniversal had started to advocate passionately for Drupal. Chris really wanted me to experience firsthand the community and all it had to offer.

Dept of Finance Embraces Drupal for Centralised Government-wide CMS [Sept. 15, 2014]

Government Technology Review

The Commonwealth Department of Finance will build its centralised govCMS Web-content platform on a content management system (CMS) from Acquia, the company announced today after an extensive tendering process that began in May with an open request for industry comment.

Designed to provide a centralised repository for storage and publication of government agencies’ content, the govCMS platform is intended to simplify content-management processes by shifting them to the cloud-based Acquia Cloud platform.

Acquia’s solution is based on the aGov distribution of the widely used Drupal open-source CMS, which already powers sites like Australia.gov.au and finance.gov.au that will be among the first to transfer to the govCMS environment.

“We designed govCMS to save costs while empowering agencies to act independently. We’re supporting innovation by relying on Drupal, a technology proven in governments around the world,” Australian Government CTO John Sheridan said in a statement.

“Open source technologies like Drupal, when paired with an open cloud platform like Acquia Cloud, are creating efficiencies in government and disrupting the way we deliver digital citizen experiences – for the better.”
