Translation Management – You can now integrate with third-party translation vendors directly from the Sitefinity platform.  By using this feature it will reduce effort, save time and improve quality. This integration will instantly allow you to export and import content in XLIFF format which is supported by most translation agencies.  

Email Campaign Enhancements – Provides more control using interval-timed batch sending, improved usability and scalability and allowing integrations with hosted delivery services. 

Site Sync Functionality Improvements – Now allows multiple sync operations at once so the user can schedule more than one sync task at a time. 

Scheduling of site sync tasks gives the user the ability to see upcoming Site Sync tasks and sync history, showing a list of all completed sync’s which will include details on their scope and errors.

All these additions will extend the usage of Site Sync and will give greater visibility on future and past syncs.

Additional MVC Widgets – now available to assist developers with creating new applications and extensions that control the core CMS and its content while saving time.
