We've launched a new support center at help.smartling.com. This site will continue to be maintained into January 2017. Please update your bookmarks.


The following article applies to Global Delivery Network, Application Resource File, Business Document, and CMS Connector project types.

The API settings page allows you to generate credentials for Smartling's Smartling Application Programming Interface (API). There are currently 2 active versions of the Smartling API. Version 1 is still available but scheduled to be deprecated on October 2017. Where possible, you should use Version 2. 

Version 1

Each account has a single API key. Copy it from the v1.0 tab, or click Generate new API key. Note that if you generate a new API key, your old one will stop working. The page also shows a list of project IDs for each project in your account. You need both an API Key and a Project ID to access version 1 API.


Version 2

Version 2 uses Oauth authentication and requires a token and secret. You can generate as many tokens as you wish. Tokens can be created to have access to your entire account or only for a specific project. The token secret is only available when the token is first created so be sure to store it securely.
