Smartling Grows Enterprise Customer Roster: Accelerates Global Expansion for YouSendIt, Glassdoor and 99designs

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - Smartling, the cloud-based enterprise translation management company, today announced three new customers -- YouSendIt, Glassdoor and 99designs -- using its flagship platform to manage their fast-expanding translation and localization needs. From business documents, websites, web applications, and mobile apps to catalog feeds and long-tail digital content, Smartling manages all translation requirements to ensure online and offline content is up-to-date and in the native language of every region.

Customers rely on Smartling's cloud-based technology, transparent workflows, contextual editing capabilities and rapid deployment across their corporate ecosystem of digital content to go global with unmatched speed and accuracy.

  • YouSendIt, Inc, a leading cloud file collaboration service, is using Smartling's enterprise software platform to pilot their website and web app to Dutch and French speaking customers, and to expand internationally.
