Below, we’ll guide you through setting up the Slack & Transifex Zaps. However, the beauty of Zapier is that it’s flexible. You can use the supported triggers and actions to create similar Zaps connected to other services (e.g., HipChat or Box) or create something new.

Get Slack notifications about finished translations

For this Zap, we’ll first set up a trigger based on an event in Transifex (translations are completed). Then, we’ll set up an action in Slack (message a channel) whenever that event occurs. You can follow these steps to get notified about other events or send notifications through another service.

Setting up the Transifex trigger

  1. Sign up for a Zapier account if you don't already have one, log into the Zapier, click on Zaps, and then Create Zap!

  2. You’ll be asked to choose a trigger app. Search for Transifex and select it from the drop-down.

  3. Select the event you want to use as a trigger. For this example, we’ll choose Localization Activity Completed. Once you've selected a trigger event, hit Continue.
