Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google that allows website owners to track and analyze various aspects of their website’s performance and user interaction. It provides valuable insights into how users engage with a website, where they come from, and what actions they take while on the site. Google Analytics offers a wide range of features to help website owners understand their audience, optimize their content, and improve their online presence.

The example below shows a bird that updpates a Zendesk article after being translated by machine translation. Then the bird is delayed for two weeks, to gather enough data. And based on Google Analytics’ metrics on that same Zendesk article, in this case whether there were more than 1000 total users visiting said article for the last 14 days, a new MemoQ project is created and the translated article is sent for human revision.


Below are some of the available Google Analytics metrics to be chosen in order to make data-driven decisions.
