Example 1 Example

Here, whenever PDF files are uploaded to SharePoint Documents, each file is downloaded, translated with Language Weaver and placed in the appropriate directory based on the translation quality assessment.

Example 2 Example In this example, the workflow starts with the On pages created or updated. Then, the workflow uses the Get page as HTML action to get html content of updated/created page. In the next step we translate this content via DeepL and then send the translated page to Slack channel.
