AI Translate TYPO3 extension

by Thomaskutty Sebastian

What is your idea about?

A new AI Translation extension that leverages popular language models from OpenAI, Gemini, DeepL etc. Check here, and TYPO3 Extension 'AI Translate' (ai_translate)
Our idea revolves around creating a TYPO3 CMS extension that provides editors with the flexibility to leverage various AI translation services for translating content in the backend. This model-agnostic approach aims to cater to different budgets and preferences, allowing editors to choose the service that best suits their needs.
Overall, our idea aims to empower TYPO3 CMS users with a powerful and flexible translation solution that leverages cutting-edge AI technologies. By providing a centralized platform for utilizing multiple AI models, we are fostering a collaborative ecosystem where users can leverage the best-suited services, ultimately improving the quality and efficiency of their translation workflows.

What do you want to achieve by the end of Q3 2024?

By the end of the third quarter of our primary goal is to implement a backend module within the extension that facilitates the automatic translation of locallang.xlf files by editors. Additionally, we aim to provide a functionality that enables the export/import option of these translated files in a CSV (Excel) format. This comprehensive approach not only streamlines the translation process but also ensures seamless integration with other tools and workflows.

Furthermore, we are exploring options for incorporating open-source language models, thereby promoting accessibility and cost-effectiveness, which could prove invaluable for organizations with limited budgets. Additionally, the integration with AI content generation plugins opens new possibilities for content creation and enhancement, further expanding the capabilities of our extension.

What is the potential impact of your idea for the overall goal?
The potential impact of our idea is multifaceted and could significantly enhance the overall translation experience for TYPO3 CMS users. By harnessing the power of AI translation services, editors can benefit from increased efficiency, accuracy, and consistency in their translations. Our approach ensures versatility, enabling users to leverage the strengths of different AI models based on their specific requirements.

Which budget do you need for your idea?
5.000 Euro

Hi! Have you heard of the AI Suite extension? :slightly_smiling_face:
The XLF-files translation is already there and we have plans to extend the translation features e.g. for content. We faced and fixed the issue with several API keys with our concept to have only one API key from, so everyone can choose the model or API as the user likes. Our software architecture is made for adding easily a lot of new models.
Looking forward to get your feedback!

whenever we have approached our customers with such a solution, their first concern is the possibility to force consistency in the usage of specific terms in their realm of work. So in my opinion, an integration of a glossary feature would be a top priority. The extension wv_deepltranslate provides the usage of such a glossary, but it is a integrated feature of the DeepL service.

Best regards,
