Lloyd International Translations Showcases Website Multilingual Capabilities With Ektron

UK Translation and Localization Firm Sees Operational Efficiencies Enhanced Through Web Content Management Platform

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) -  Ektron Inc., a Web content management, social software and marketing optimization solution provider, was chosen by UK firm, Lloyd International Translations (LIT), to make their Web site http://www.lloyd.co.uk/ a destination showcase demonstrating the company's multilingual capabilities in action.

Established in 1989, Lloyd International Translations specialises in assisting companies to achieve global success by providing first-class technical translation and localization services. "We were looking for a content management system that would allow us to use our translation tools to translate the content in an efficient manner," says Noel McCourt, technical project manager at LIT. "We also wanted a user-friendly content management system where our non-technical people could update the site quickly and easily. We were very specific about what we needed in a Web CMS. We found what we needed with Ektron."

Ektron's Web content management platform provides a complete solution for managing multilingual web content, including native support for the XLIFF file format -- an important localization standard -- and integration with popular software translation tools. XLIFF (XML Localization Interchange File Format) is a format used to exchange localization data, enabling translators to concentrate on the text to be translated, without worrying about text layout.

"With the XLIFF format we can export segments of content and not have to worry about linking or the positioning of the file," says McCourt. "It's all being taken care of by the Ektron platform."

"The Ektron system is very user friendly for non-technical people. It's easy to access, add and amend content without needing in-depth technical knowledge or continual help from the technical team. It's a huge improvement from what we had previously," adds Helen Wood, LIT sales and marketing coordinator.
