We know the drill — strings get filtered from a file, translated and put back into said file.  Creating different output results like additional images for French, moving your Russian headline to a different position or last-minute changes in your Chinese version, are not possible. The reason is that all the attributes belonging to the string are embedded inside the file alongside. The Flex-API and the connected line of JAWS products address this issue by directly connecting your application to a dynamic database inside the Wordbee-TMS.  Welcome to the future. Translation finally becomes live.

Takeaways: Attendees will hear about a disruptive new workflow; truly agile multilingual publishing; and the certainty that the file as a data container is holding us back.
