Lionbridge and Transifex to Offer Continuous Translation Solution for Agile Developers and Marketers

Integrated solution delivers quality translations and accelerates time to market for multilingual web and mobile apps, websites and global marketing content

WALTHAM, Mass. – March 22, 2016Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: LIOX), today announced a joint solution that combines Lionbridge onDemand, the industry’s first Translation as a Service (TaaS) with Transifex, a leading software for continuous translation. The integrated solution provides agile developers with a streamlined, integrated solution for multilingual web apps, mobile apps, websites, help centres, video subtitles, and other global content.

Currently, over 700 companies leverage Lionbridge onDemand for their translation needs. Clients embrace the instant quotes and delivery dates, review workflow, automated payment management and asset management. By integrating Lionbridge onDemand, Transifex users can now access a suite of solutions for continuous translation of web and mobile applications.

“Vungle has experienced rapid international customer growth during the past 18 months, and Lionbridge and Transifex have been crucial in helping us meet go-to-market timelines and develop a deep catalogue of localised marketing and support materials for these global markets,” said Catherine Mylinh, Vice President of Marketing, Vungle. “The automated platform is convenient and simple and allows us to take advantage of Lionbridge’s unparalleled translation services seamlessly.”

Achieving quality translation in a rapid and continuous development cycle is a significant challenge. Many companies have tried using a combination of tools and processes, including machine or crowd translation to meet goals based on speed, but are ultimately unsatisfied with the quality levels. The joint Lionbridge-Transifex solution delivers the automation, speed, and quality levels required by today’s agile developers. The joint solution allows developers to:

  • Accelerate time-to-market: End-to-end automation from string extraction to professional translation and back, reducing turnaround times and time-to-market;
  • Increase processes visibility: A centralised platform for monitoring and managing all localisation specific activities and resources;
  • Minimise cost: Translation memories ensure that the same content is translated only once;
  • Simplify translation management: Pricing, invoicing, and spend tracking are all automated in the system.

“Clients have been asking for high quality translation in a rapid, continuous translation environment. Our fully automated joint solution with Transifex now makes this possible,” said Marc Osofsky, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Global Offerings, Lionbridge. “Lionbridge onDemand meets the translation needs of all business functions.”

“Our partnership with Lionbridge demonstrates our commitment to providing customers the support they need, in order to create high quality globalised content and reach targeted audiences worldwide. We’re delighted to partner with a world-class service like Lionbridge’s onDemand, and be the link for customers to experience exceptional localisation services,” said Amy Hawman, Vice President of Marketing, Transifex.
