Lingotek Expands Multi-Vendor Translation Capabilities

Introduces Ability to Bring Your Own Translator (BYOT) to Existing Workflow

LEHI, UT--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2014) - Lingotek | The Translation Network has launched the Translation Management System (TMS) for multi-vendor translation, liberating brands to choose any translation agency of their choice for in-workflow translation. This expansion of Lingotek's award-winning TMS lets brands quickly select, manage and collaborate with Language Service Providers (LSPs) on the cloud, increasing the efficiency of the translation process and boosting translation ROI.

"Translation and localization is a $35B market, but vendor flexibility has been surprisingly limited until now," said Larry Furr, VP of Product Management for Lingotek. "Managing multiple LSPs of your choice under one umbrella is a big step up from a traditional TMS, which requires you to use pre-curated translation services or commissioned vendors. Lingotek has streamlined one of the last slow links in the translation process, and we're excited to share the benefits with brands and organizations."

"Lingotek acts as a 'traffic cop' to direct each translation project to specific translation vendors to execute translation memory, machine translation and post-editing if so desired," said James Turcotte, SVP of Information Services at CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA). Turcotte integrates his chosen vendors into the Lingotek TMS, managing workflows by product, language, vendor costs, quality and bandwidth. The result is a fine-tuned process that is activated by one click. Per Turcotte: "Once an Information Engineer has completed authoring content, they simply hit the Translation button which, in turn, kicks off the Lingotek workflows. The Lingotek dashboard provides an impressive real-time translation status for each of the vendors."

A Complete Translation Management Platform

Lingotek provides a full suite of online tools to initiate, deliver, and analyze translation projects. In addition to giving users the ability to choose multiple vendors, Lingotek offers several in-workflow benefits:

  • Track the status of your project from each vendor
  • Monitor what you've translated, so that you don't have to repeat any work
  • Share translation memories and glossaries between all your vendors in order to maximize translation speed, consistency and cost savings
  • Download content into the enterprise application of your choice - Lingotek - Inside
  • Evaluate vendor performance using quality assessment tools and reports
  • Monitor vendor activity and progress in real-time
  • Calculate vendor cost and ROI using analysis tools
