2015 Knowledge Sharing Book of Abstracts

The 2015 Knowledge Sharing Book of Abstracts has been published by EMC.  This book contains summaries of all of the 2015 Knowledge Sharing articles chosen for publication this year.  The articles are really interesting; download the Book of Abstracts and see what articles interest you and when they will be published.  You can download the competition winning articles immediately.  My Knowledge Sharing article, A Language Translation Service for Documentum, is on page 33 and is scheduled to be published (pdf) in September 2015.


In our highly-connected and diverse society, the expectation that online content be multilingual is greater today than ever before. It is expected that licensing agreements, rules and regulations, and disclaimers be available in multiple languages on websites belonging to software vendors, credit card companies, insurers, and other service providers. From a content management perspective, how do you produce, manage, and maintain all of these translations? What if the “source” document changes? How do these changes ripple through to the rest of the translations? What if one of the translations needs to be “tweaked”? How do you keep its versions in sync with the source document?

This Knowledge Sharing article discusses a solution for creating and maintaining multiple translations of content in a Documentum® repository. The solution uses the inherent content management capabilities of the Documentum Content Server to manage content, versions, and relationships among documents, and leverages the Content Server’s infrastructure (specifically Service-based Objects, asynchronous jobs, and external database tables) to integrate with a translation services provider for the production of translations. The translation services provider used for this discussion is Lingotek (www.lingotek.com). Lingotek offers a comprehensive RESTful API that integrates easily with Documentum to provide a seamless solution for the production and management of multilingual content.

About Scott
I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
