Acquia's Extended Partnership With Lingotek Gives Enterprise Customers Unparalleled Translation Abilities Within Drupal

Acquia Network Users Can Localize, Deliver Multi-Lingual Solutions, Engage Community to Translate

LEHI, UT--(Marketwire - Mar 19, 2012) - Lingotek | The Translation Network and Acquia™, the enterprise guide to Drupal, today announced that Lingotek - Inside is now fully interoperable with Drupal and available immediately within the Acquia Network as part of their Acquia Network Marketplace. With the Lingotek Solution in the Acquia Network, Drupal users can rapidly and cost effectively build and scale their online presences in global markets.

Acquia enables their customers -- from the individual developer to world's largest enterprises -- to more easily construct and maintain effective, Drupal-powered websites. The Lingotek module and service will be available through the Acquia Network, which provides answers, tools and support for assembling extraordinary web experiences with Drupal.

"The Drupal community needs excellent internationalization and localization to build multilingual sites," said Peter Guagenti, vice president of Services, Acquia. "We chose to partner with Lingotek to help us translate the content of our own Acquia website, and to offer Lingotek as a service to our Acquia Network users and through our Drupal Commons distribution. With Lingotek, Drupal site owners can build content for global audiences while engaging their own communities to help support content translation."

Through the combined solution with Acquia and Lingotek, members of the Drupal community can use sophisticated translation technologies, workflow management and community collaboration directly within Drupal, seamlessly transitioning their online content into global markets. Acquia Network subscribers can access Lingotek's no-cost machine translation and also use the Lingotek Collaborative Translation Platform at a discounted rate as a part of the Acquia Network.

"We are proud to extend our relationship with Acquia," said Robert Vandenberg, CEO, Lingotek. "The strategic business alliance between Acquia and Lingotek will enable Drupal users to translate and localize large amounts of content, including social media, reliably and rapidly. With Lingotek - Inside Drupal and the extensive resources within Acquia, reaching a global audience has become much easier and more intuitive."

With the Lingotek Solution, once Drupal users create content, they can invite community members to both contribute to translations and rate their quality. Enterprises can use best-in-class machine translation solutions, real-time community translations or professional translations to translate and localize content for a fraction of the cost of a traditional translation service.
