Installation of Language I/O Response within Salesforce

This article is intended for Salesforce administrators responsible for installing and configuring the Language I/O Response add-in for automated case translation.

  1. Contact Language I/O Support at to get your info entered into our database. You will be sent your Language I/O Consumer ID and your available translation types. These will be used later in the process. Language I/O will need the username, password, and security token of an account with permissions able to modify Cases and objects used by cases such as case comments and email drafts. This user will definitely need API access at all times for translations to be pushed in, but regular login access can be blocked in high security environments.
  2. Install the package from the latest URL below depending on whether you are using a Sandbox or Production org. Begin by logging into the instance of Salesforce you wish to use. Visit the install link in the same browser and select "Install for all users".
  3. If you don't have your own predefined case locale for cases, add a custom locale field to Case by going to Setup > Customize > Cases > Fields. Name this field "locale" or something of your choosing. This will be the field used for locale setting by defined workflow or language auto-detection.
  4. For html forms to create cases in a test env: Enable Case Feed by going to Customize > Self Service > Web-To-Case and enabling it.
  5. Navigate to Setup > Develop > Custom Settings > LinguistNow. Click "[Manage]". An example of this page can be seen below. Set LinguistNowConsumerId to the ID received in step 1. Set the three HumanOrMachine fields also received in step 1. For LinguistNowURL, use "". Set LinguistNowEmailTextOrHtml to "html" if you would like full html sent or "text" if you would plaintext. Set LinguistNowLocaleFieldName to the value chosen in  step 3 with "__c" appended to the end.
