Smartling Translation API

This repository contains the Java SDK for accessing the Smartling Translation API.

The Smartling Translation API allows developers to seamlessly internationalize their website by automating the translation and integration of their site content. Developers can upload resource files and download the translated files in a language of their choosing. There are options to allow for professional translation, community translation and machine translation.

For a full description of the Smartling Translation API, please read the docs at:

Quick start

Clone the repo, git clone

$ mvn clean install

Note: Integration tests will fail without a valid Smartling account, however as of 3.0.0 this will not block the build. With a Smartling Account you can run the integration tests:

$ mvn verify -DuserId=<smartling user id> -DuserSecret=<smartling user secret> -DprojectId=<smartling project>

See for more details.


For transparency and insight into our release cycle, and for striving to maintain backward compatibility, the Smartling Translation API SDK will be maintained under the Semantic Versioning guidelines as much as possible.

Releases will be numbered with the follow format:


And constructed with the following guidelines:

  • Breaking backward compatibility bumps the major
  • New additions without breaking backward compatibility bumps the minor
  • Bug fixes and misc changes bump the patch
