How to enable and use the Translate plugin

Overview

Like integrations, you need to be an admin in order to set up the Translate plugin.

The Translate plugin allows you to read the translation of a message, and copy and paste custom content in the box to translate additional text.


Instructions

Step 1

Go into your Settings and select Plugins & API, and Add a plugin.

Step 2 

Enter the name of the plugin. In this case, we suggest Translate. Then copy and paste this URL in the Endpoint box: https://ext.frontapp.com/translate.html

Step 3

Click Save to finish setting up the Translate plugin.

Step 4

Now you'll need to get an API key from a translation provider. We currently only support Yandex's translation API, so go to https://tech.yandex.com/translate, and select Get a free API key.

Step 5

If you don't already have a Yandex account, click Register to create one.

Step 6

Complete the sign-up form.

Step 7

Make sure the User Agreement box is checked, and select Get API key.

Step 8

You should now see the API key. Copy it.

Step 9

Go back to Front and select Translate from the plugin panel. Paste the API key from the Yandex website, and click Save.

Step 10

You should now see the translation of your message. You can also use the text box at the bottom to translate other text.
