              Context API

              The context API allows you to submit a HTML rendering of the content for which translation is requested. This is then used for doing in-context reviews of the translations before the final translations are delivered back to the content repository.

              You can also submit XML files which will be transformed to HTML on the server using a preconfigured XSLT processor.
