Content is king! You know that and so do we

At Umbraco, we believe that content is king and that nothing should stand in the way of creating great content. That’s why we have built the Umbraco CMS to support your workflow, so you can spend more time creating content and less time on long and tedious processes.

But creating content is not enough - it also needs to be seen and shared. With Umbraco, it is simple to optimize your content for SEO best practices, while also being easy to share on Social Media with the right description and image to make it stand out.

And if you’re depending on 3rd party system and tools - you don’t have to give them up. Umbraco’s set-up means it’s possible to integrate with these in a seamless way so you can get a website that works the way you need it to.

Editor workflow that fits you

We have worked hard to make an editing experience that fits your natural workflow. Once you’re in the zone and the creative juices are flowing, nothing should stand in your way or be overly complicated.

We call this; “Infinite Editing”. This is integrated workflows in the Backoffice that ensure that you and your team won’t get interrupted and can always stay focused on the context and the content you are creating. Create a page, add text through a WYSIWYG editor, upload and crop images perfectly for the page and write catchy SEO titles and descriptions - all without leaving the page you are working on.

Are you working on a multilingual website? Then Language variants got you covered as well. With the powerful side-by-side mode, you can edit two pieces of content at the same time, so the text you are translating is always visible in your screen and you won’t have to keep switching tabs when translating.

Preview before you ship to the world

Once you’re ready to publish, you never have to be scared of how it will look for your users - no matter the device they use. Does the content in the editor look like expected on the page? Are your images going to align properly on tablets? Will your headlines break down to multiple lines on smartphones? With the powerful preview feature, you’ll always be able to preview your content on multiple devices before publishing, so it looks great across all screens.

The unique Responsive Preview gives you previews of how your content will look on desktop and laptop screens as well as portrait and landscape view on tablets and mobiles.

Be confident when you press “Publish” and know you don’t have to spend time afterwards on fixing how it is presented on the page.
