API - Get project information

The purpose of this method is to retrieve and check the languages of the connected Beebox project. This is very important since the languages of your content (CMS, database, etc.) and the Beebox project languages must match.

When to use: A CMS connector checks languages in the page where the user configures the connection to the Beebox. You would get the languages with the present method and make sure that the languages correspond to those in the CMS. The source language must match or you will not be able to send any content for translation. The target language codes should match too or you can only get translations for those languages that do match.
