Installation of Language I/O Social in Salesforce

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

Installation of the Language I/O App for Social

  2. Create a Salesforce user for Language I/O with sufficient permissions to push back translations.
