Access the SDK

The Software Development Kit (SDK) has been designed to enable you to fully interact with other developers to make the most of the product APIs. The SDK allows you to:

  • Share your experience, ask questions and contribute to the documentation by leaving comments directly on documentation pages
  • Use the 'Community' functionality of the SDK to add code samples, how-to guides or any other useful information directly to the SDK
  • Access the API documentation offline via the zip package

Use the Developer Community Forum

The SDL AppStore Developer Community Forum provides a platform to interact with fellow developer enthusiasts and is the place to go to if you have any SDK questions. You can use the community forum to:

  • Keep up to date with new additions to the API
  • Discuss app ideas
  • Ask questions about the API and how to use it
  • Add your app for beta testing.

Submitting an app to the store

You can add your app to the SDL AppStore to share the download with other SDL Language Technology users. To do this you need to have an active license for the SDL product your app works for and sign up to be an SDL Developer. To sign up, you need to login to your SDL Account and go to the 'Apps & Developers' tab which can be found in the top menu, then click the 'Apps' tab below it. You will find the 'Become an SDL Developer' button on this page.

Once you have been approved, you can submit your app within this section by clicking the ‘Add a new App’ button. You will be prompted to give your app a name and version number. After this, you will then need to complete a short form describing your app before submitting it for review.

Publishing and updating apps

When your app has been submitted it is subject to our security and functional review process. Once the app has been approved we will contact you to let you know that it is being published to the store. If you later wish to update your app, you can do this by revisiting the 'Apps' section of your SDL Account. You then simply need to select the app you would like to update, edit the form with your changes and then press the 'Save' button to submit your app's update for review. The SDL AppStore team will contact you to let you know when the updated version has been published.

If you would like to have more than one version of an app live on the app store simultaneously, you can press the 'Add a new version' button to create multiple records of the same app. This is useful for cases where an app has both a paid version and a free version or if an app has separate installers for different versions of an SDL product.
