Users can upload files to Babel3D by using the “Drag-n-Drop” file uploader (up to 10 files at a time) or through the traditional “Choose Files” button (one at a time). Today, we are happy to provide “Choose from Dropbox" as a third option to the users.
Many of us use Dropbox to transfer and share files across devices and with people. Most of our customers store files in their Dropbox. Dropbox support was one of the most requested feature. It is here now and this is how it works.
1. When you login to Babel3D next time, you will see a “Choose from Dropbox” button on the lower right hand corner of the Drag-n-Drop File uploader.
2. Click on the button to sign in to your Dropbox account (launched in a new window). Next, the Dropbox Chooser window is displayed.
3. Choose a file to submit it for translation to Babel3D. You can do this multiple times. Click on “Translate” button to proceed.
There are a few additional advantages when uploading from Dropbox. First, since you are not actually uploading a file, but only submitting a URL, the whole process is blazing fast. You will see your files (even heavier ones) get submitted in a matter of seconds. The second advantage is that you can now do this on devices where this was not possible before. For example, from the iPad/iPhone Safari or Chrome on Android devices.
Speaking of iOS and Android, we will add Dropbox support in Glovius iOS and Android apps, making it even simpler for you to submit jobs and translate/view files on the go. Stay tuned for an update on the apps.
Do give this a try and let us know your feedback!
