Cloudwords Translates to Success With Impressive Company Growth and Expanded Global Footprint

Translation Management Leader Adds Notable Fortune 500 and Global 2000 Organizations to Stunning Customer Roster

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 11, 2013) - Cloudwords, the first cloud-based translation management application, recognized today the two year anniversary of its product launch with an update on the company's tremendous growth and success as a leading online application provider helping companies automate, manage and analyze their translation process. With a customer base that boasts Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies, Cloudwords is focused on delivering an enterprise-ready solution that streamlines the process of translating and localizing content to help organizations go to market faster.

Customers who use Cloudwords reduce their translation costs by more than 40 percent, and complete translation processes 60 percent more quickly, meaning translation projects that used to take several months can now be completed in several weeks. Cloudwords customers include SuccessFactors/SAP, Marketo, Groupon, Honeywell, Life Technologies, Verisign and Panduit, among others.

"When Cloudwords launched, our goal was to transform the archaic process of managing translation by developing a cloud-based application built specifically for business and marketing users. Through our efforts, we've successfully raised the bar for how translation should be managed in organizations today. The Cloudwords platform delivers visibility, control, and centralized project management," said Michael Meinhardt, CEO and Co-founder of Cloudwords. "Now, we're continuing to build on our strength as a powerful and flexible cloud application that enables businesses to easily manage all their translation projects and achieve a faster time to market."

In 2012, the company more than tripled the number of closed projects compared to the previous year, and reports a 1,100 percent increase in project dollar value. In addition to a number of new product features and functionalities to better support its growing customer base, Cloudwords also launched two key integrations to deliver on its vision of being the central hub for multilingual content management across the enterprise.

Following integrations between Cloudwords and leading web content management systems (CMS) Drupal and Adobe CQ, Cloudwords effectively eliminates the inefficiencies around copying and pasting content or problematic import/export processes, enabling project leaders to manage the translation of content more quickly and easily. Now, Cloudwords allows business users to get multilingual content to market at least 80 percent faster using integrations built on the best-in-class Cloudwords REST API.

"Using the Cloudwords API speeds up our translation turnaround time so we can keep all of our global content up to date for our Appthority App Risk Management service," said Anthony Bettini, CEO and Co-founder of Appthority.

In addition to capabilities designed to improve the customer experience, Cloudwords also continues to add features and functions designed specifically to address the demands and requirements of its language service providers (LSPs) in order to increase efficiencies and improve the translation process. Participating in the Cloudwords marketplace allows its LSP partners to interact with and potentially gain customers that they may not have access to otherwise. Further, for LSPs that do not have existing technology to manage their translation delivery workflow, they gain the ability to leverage Cloudwords' leading technology.

"Cloudwords enables us to communicate directly with qualified decision makers involved in the localization bidding process in a way that dramatically reduces the cost, time and energy generally required to have an ongoing global conversation. We see Cloudwords as a translation opportunity to easily introduce Venga and engage organizations investing in translation and localization," said Robert J. Forloine, VP of Business Development and Sales at Venga.
