Major Enhancement to XTM Cloud Integration
XTM Cloud users are eager to take a driving role in understanding and developing their MT programs — Enter CustomMT.
The 12.5 version of XTM Cloud introduces the CustomMT feature, making it extremely easy to connect Intento’s MT platform to all translation workflows. This significantly expands the choice of MT providers that can be leveraged directly from within XTM Cloud, giving customers more flexibility in choosing best-fit MT and offering seamless access to Intento’s curated MT platform, tools, and services.
You can learn more about Intento’s XTM Cloud integration by watching our demo video, where Mark Hjerpe, VP of Revenue, will walk you through the simple steps to taking full advantage of your XTM Cloud experience.

The New Translator on the Scene
Intento Translator for Agents has arrived in the Zendesk Marketplace
The new Translator for Agents makes Zendesk ready for a global audience. The app allows customer support teams to translate client’s requests into the company’s primary language and respond in the client’s native language. As a plus, the translator is integrated into the Zendesk Support interface, so users don’t need to switch between tabs to copy and past ticket contents.
For Zendesk agents, this is a great way to expand global outreach, breaking down language barriers between you and potential clients.
Chrome Extension v1.1.0
The latest version of the Intento Translator Chrome Extension has officially been published, and it makes a world of difference if you are specifically invested in Japanese localization. Try translating websites today with best of breed AI powered by the Intento MT Hub!
