Hey guys,

as the URI suggests, we are working on a test domain of our page ( When we are done with the whole translation and the results are approved, I'll switch the page to our live domain

What do I need to take care of that everything is right (API key only one license conumed etc).

Theoretically we only need the tool in the text environemnt as new content should only be there created. Only after approval the whole page is put in production.

Thanks for your advice

Another method is this:

Please let me know if you have further question about the best practice.

Best Marcel
