Lingotek, Phase2 OpenPublic Take Open Government One Step Further

Integration Optimizes Translation Management for Government

LEHI, UT--(Marketwired - Jul 26, 2013) - Lingotek | The Translation Network and OpenPublic, have announced an integrated partnership to create a built-in translation solution for the open source distribution. With Lingotek's cloud-based translation management system built into OpenPublic, federal agencies, state and local governments, and nonprofit organizations will now have the opportunity to scale and broaden their global content systems within a secure, accessible OpenGov environment.

"OpenPublic is the premier CMS for government agencies to operate their website in a secure, trustworthy and scalable environment," said Robert Vandenberg, CEO of Lingotek. "Now with Lingotek - Inside OpenPublic, users can enjoy enhanced levels of multilingual functionality within that framework."

Built and maintained by Phase2, the web strategy, experience design, and technology agency for influential organizations across the public, private, and non-profit sectors, OpenPublic is the open source distribution developed to help build content management systems (CMS) and collaboration tools for government and public sector projects. Created with security and accessibility in mind, OpenPublic provides a flexible solution tailored for emerging internet and open government concerns, such as responsive web design, security compliance and customizable workflow administration.

The integration with Lingotek brings usability and accessibility to new levels by enabling users to translate content directly within their CMS workflow. Users can optimize budgets for the best translation workflow for their content, whether that be machine, community, or professional translation. Rather than a one-size-fits-all proposition, which often comes with steep costs, government users will be able to expedite and optimize translation, without ever leaving their CMS. Agencies will seamlessly be able to scale translation, meeting critical needs in many areas of government, from information to health care. 

"We are excited to be launching a streamlined and secure translation integration with Lingotek to the public sector and government agencies that have grown to rely on and trust OpenPublic," said Phase2 CEO Jeff Walpole. "With Lingotek's best-in-class services accessible to these groups, OpenPublic will offer real-time translation resources to enhance productivity and efficiency on a global scale."

The Lingotek and OpenPublic integration will launch in early August, and the app will be available on the OpenPublic app server for all existing OpenPublic sites.

Members of both the OpenPublic and Lingotek teams will be present at this year's CapitalCamp, a premiere Drupal camp for those in the Washington, DC area. This year's conference focuses on open government and Lingotek will have personnel and resources available at the event.
