The improved integration of corporate translation management systems in CONTENS makes it even more easier to carry out translation processes. With its partners Across and Elephant Seven CONTENS is situated in hall 3 stand C65.

Having integrated extended enterprise 2.0 functions into its CMS technology CONTENS supports innovative standards for the efficient data exchange between different online applications. The implementation of the OAuth and open ID standard permits the simple and safe single sign-on authentication of other desktop and online applications as well as the access of other external applications to the CONTENS API. That way registration processes are made less difficult to open ID users. Once registered, they can use their profile again and again.

CONTENS also simplifies the exchange of content with other programs by the integration of microformats. Microformats integrate additional semantic information, which can be extracted and used by other services or applications, into web pages. Thus, e.g. it is possible to find dates and contact details faster and to export them easier.

CONTENS with Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)

Since its recent introduction to CONTENS, the system benefits from the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) with its number of helpful services which are constantly extended. Available is e.g. the object service, which contains basic functions for providing, updating and deleting objects. Also available is the page service which permits producing, deletion and publishing of web pages. Those CONTENS services can be addressed via the SOAP API as Web services and can be used for example in order to publish new content reacting to certain events. Furthermore the CONTENS REST Services are also new. Those services are used via the HTTP protocol and HTTP methods without needing an additional SOAP layer.

Simplified internationalization

The administration of multilingual content has always been a priority to the CMS solutions of CONTENS. Using UTF-8 and Unicode, online appearances can be created in all languages. CONTENS now features special translation workflows to make the operation of website localizations more simple. In addition, optional interfaces to the corporate translation management systems of Across and SDL Trados permit further process optimizations. Thus external translation agencies can be involved in the localization processes by being informed automatically as soon as new content has to be translated.

Social software for the use in enterprises

A further highlight is the development of the social network solution CONTENS relate. With CONTENS relate, CONTENS was one of the first to present a comprehensive solution for the structured development of social networks in the past year at the CeBIT. The solution already extended far beyond the functions of simple blogs and wikis. This year the enterprise presents for the first time the complete integration of its social software solution into the content management platform CONTENS enterprise.

Now the shared use of integrated CMS functions for central processes such as the right administration or workflows is possible. Counted among those are the registration and the automatic assignment of user status. Likewise the back ends of individual network applications such as newsletter modules, tag administrations or knowledge data bases can be smoothly integrated into the CMS. That makes the administration within an uniform user interface possible.

The "manager lounge", the exclusive network for specialists and executive staff which is operated with CONTENS relate, for example profits from an individually developed billing solution, which was integrated into the member administration.
