Lingotek, Lingoport Team Up to Automate Software Globalization

Integration Identifies, Translates and Imports UI Strings, Ensuring Immediate Globalization for Every Software Release

LEHI, UT--(Marketwired - Jan 27, 2015) - Lingotek | The Translation Network has announced a global partnership and technical integration with Lingoport. Together, the two companies provide continuous translation and localization for software applications, from content to code. No matter how many builds or iterations a company ships, translation and localization are automatically taken care of, freeing developers to perfect the product for every global audience.

"Keeping pace with international users requires agility, and until now, there was no good way to quickly translate and localize apps," said Lingotek CEO Rob Vandenberg. "By automatically identifying, exporting, translating and re-importing UI strings, Lingotek and Lingoport are taking the manual labor out of software globalization. In a world that is increasingly mobile and wearable, this automation will be key to helping companies win in new markets."

"We built Lingoport to help companies systematically address internationalization, and Lingotek was a natural fit," said Lingoport CEO Adam Asnes. "As continuous development became standard, we saw growing demand for our ability to seamlessly localize every sprint and release. By adding a cloud-based translation management system to our service, Lingotek completes the cycle of continuous globalization."

Together, Lingotek and Lingoport eliminate human errors that slow down localization updates. The integration automatically identifies user-interface strings, verifies locale completeness, tracks missing or non-translated strings, translates them, and round-trips the finished product back into a user's code repository. File formats and encoding are automatically verified. By seamlessly updating language files as part of the continuous delivery cycle, companies ensure that every global app and web property contains the latest code as soon as it is released. By reducing the cycle time between release and localization, Lingotek and Lingoport are bringing continuous delivery one step closer to becoming a true and unfettered reality.

"The new Lingotek-Lingoport integration enables FamilySearch to quickly and accurately update every facet of our website in all languages, ensuring that our users can easily access ancestral content," said Rob Thomas, Senior Project Manager at FamilySearch. "By automatically removing the language barrier on all fronts, Lingotek helps us connect people to their histories, and helps us focus on providing the features that matter."

The integration is available immediately with Lingotek and Lingoport.

For an in-depth exploration of how the integration works, please attend our webinar on February 12th. Lingotek and Lingoport will explain how FamilySearch, the world's largest collection of genealogy, family history and family trees, used the integration to help millions of users locate their ancestral lineage.
