Worldwide, there are approximately 2.5 quintillion bytes of data created every single day, all of which spans a huge range of different languages. Obviously, this language barrier (or language barriers, really) regularly creates big problems for businesses that want to access and utilize this information.
Awareness of this issue led customer experience management platform provider SDL to create its brand new online translation site, www.freetranslation.com, which offers individuals and businesses a user-friendly experience for their “cross-language communication needs.”
The service will leverage a combination of secure machine and human translation through a simple interface to make sure it can provide the most accurate results possible to users, so that they can meet their precise needs. This ultimately empowers individuals or organizations to manage the entire translation process, so that they can ensure it meets their unique needs.
SDL is already a global leader in the customer experience management sector, including translation services, but in order to simplify (and thus enhance) the user experience, its freetranslation.com site allows people to select the type of translation that best suits their specific requirements of their personal or business documents and obtain a free quote. So, users can either choose the free online translation that uses SDL’s patented machine translation technology, or use the information they’re given to decide if they want a different level of professional human translation for their information.
“Our business goal is to provide technology and services that help simplify global customer engagement,” said CEO Mark Lancaster. “The freetranslation.com site eliminates barriers to communication, dramatically simplifies the online user experience and delivers true customer value where it matters most – at the intersection of high quality secure machine and human translation.”
