Lingotek's Translation Module Now Integrated With Drupal 8 Enables Instant Access to Best-in-Class Automated Translation

Lingotek Is a DrupalCon Amsterdam Platinum Sponsor

LEHI, UT--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2014) - Lingotek | The Translation Network has announced the release of the development version of its Lingotek Translation module for Drupal 8. The new integration allows users to access Lingotek's cloud-based translation management system, which includes machine, community and professional translation services without leaving the Drupal environment. Available with the drop of Drupal 8, the new integration will also be demonstrated at this year's DrupalCon in Amsterdam where Lingotek is a Platinum Sponsor.

"Lingotek is excited about the important advancements being made for multilingual Drupal 8 and is thrilled to be able to contribute to these improvements," said Rob Vandenberg, President and CEO of Lingotek. "Drupal 8 promises to be the community's best release yet, and we're honored to be a key component for multilingual Drupal users."

Mobile-ready and easily customizable, Drupal has attracted some of the world's busiest websites, from the White House and Twitter to PCWorld. Drupal's legendary simplicity -- which enables seamless site-building through hundreds of free modules and simple back-end integration -- is the ideal match for Lingotek's Translation Management System (TMS), which is designed to add the utmost flexibility to sites requiring multilingual capabilities.

The translation module now available in Drupal 8 connects Lingotek's TMS to Drupal creating seamless handling of sites that need to appear in multiple languages. Professional translation services that once took weeks or even months to turn around, can now be managed and turned in days. Drupal users can customize their translation workflow everything from whitepapers to user comments and set pages to automatically update with translated material. By choosing between machine, community or professional translation, Lingotek users can publish content globally in an efficient and cost-effective way.

"Mediacurrent is excited to be working with Lingotek and our client Manhattan Associates with the development of the new Lingotek - Inside Drupal 8 module," said Dave Terry, Partner, Client Services at Mediacurrent. "This powerful new release is going to be fantastic not only for our clients but for all users of the Lingotek Translation module with the impending release of Drupal 8."

As an enthusiastic and longtime member of the Drupal community, Lingotek has made its advanced machine translation services available free of charge to Drupal users. Lingotek Drupal developers have worked with the Drupal 8 Multilingual Initiative (D8MI), led by Gábor Hojtsy which featured contributions from more than 1,000 community members.

In keeping with Lingotek's ongoing efforts to support and improve Drupal, the company is attending and sponsoring DrupalCon Amsterdam where the D8MI team will host in-person sprints from Saturday, September 27th to Sunday, October 5th. Lingotek encourages everyone to participate as there are opportunities for all skill levels to contribute.

Lingotek will be available at Booth 7 with more information and free give aways. To learn more about Lingotek at DrupalCon Amsterdam, click here.
