SDL Tridion Community Builder

This optional add-on provides an easy to use and implement solution for capturing user comments and ratings, as well as an integrated dashboard where you can monitor your visitors activity.
The new SDL Translation Manager features better integration between SDL Tridion and SDL's translation management systems. Translations are now managed on an "item" level instead of on a "publication" level so you can configure your translation more precisely. This results in lower costs and faster translation processing times. In addition the new Translation Manager provides a detailed status overview of all outstanding translation jobs in SDL Tridion, so you can quickly and easily identify the status of your global initiatives.
