The Translations module has this connector setup by default. You can add more than one XLIFF file connector. By default, only the Xliff connector is configured. To create more connectors, perform the following:
NOTE: If you do not explicitly set the libraries that will hold the exported and imported files, you can view and download these files from the User files. To do this, click Administration » User files. You can see folders Exported Translations and Imported Translation.
This connector automatically sends the XLIFF files, generated by the Translations module, to an FTP server of the translation agency. When the items are translated, the agency uploads them on the FTP server and the connector automatically imports them in Sitefinity.
NOTE: The connector supports secured connection.
To configure XLIFF file (FTP) connector, perform the following:
This connector integrates the translation service of the agency, which consumes the translation files directly. Files are automatically sent and imported in Sitefinity CMS. By default, Sitefinity CMS uses Lionbridge Freeway via the Clay Tablet Connector.

This connector integrates the translation service of the agency, which consumes the translation files directly. Files are automatically sent and imported in Sitefinity.
PREREQUISITES: You must have an account with a translation agency that uses the Clay Tablet connector. When you create an account the agency will provide you the required parameters' values that you need to setup the connector in Sitefinity.
For a list of translation agencies that use Clay Tablet, see Translation connectors.
In addition to the built-in Translation module connectors, you can implement your own translation connector with custom logic to serve your requirements. You do this by first creating and completing the setup the connector and then use the Translation API to implement the overall translation process.
To check a detailed tutorial with a sample that you use to implement a custom translation connector to work with the Translations.com service, see the Sitefinity CMS GitHub repository.
