Translation Proxy

Do you have a single language website that needs to service a multilingual audience? If you don’t want to change platforms, invest in new software, or allocate a lot of budget for translation, website translation proxy is an efficient solution.

A quick, efficient path to web translation and launch

Our Translation Proxy solution allows you to create a multilingual website without requiring specific software. It’s platform agnostic, so translation is possible even if your site lacks multilingual capabilities on its own.

With Translation Proxy, you’ll be able to:

  • Reach people around the world in the languages they prefer
  • Outsource day-to-day localization management
  • Review translated content in context before it goes live, giving you more quality control

The proxy is a quick and efficient way to translate and launch a localized site. We can translate small sites in as little as 2 – 3 weeks, scaling up with complexity and number of words. With Lionbridge, you’ll have a single point of contact from beginning to end: we can help you with both proxy set-up and translation.

And since we offer Translation Proxy within our onDemand platform, you can get other content translated, including documentation, videos, and software.

Translation Proxy: Case Study


A US-based luxury hotel had many international clients, the majority of whom were Chinese speaking. To provide a personalized customer experience for these clients, the hotel decided to localize their website into Chinese. But they needed a responsive, hands-off localization solution that quickly reflected changes to their English site.

We designed a tailored translation proxy solution to meet their needs. It included customization for widgets and popups, and it also included a steady site update workflow. This update workflow used periodic scans of the English site to capture any new content—a setup that allowed minimal client involvement in the Chinese site upkeep.

The client got the hands-off, easy solution they needed, so they don’t have to spend too much time or energy on website maintenance. And the hotel’s Chinese customers are now provided with a seamless digital experience in their own native language.
