We are constantly looking for solutions that can determine a value for the company that decides to rely on us to translate content, whether online or offline. As a result of our experience, we are able to understand the needs of companies seeking development of their business in multiple languages.
Save time and money
Most of these companies are not prepared to allocate large budgets for professional translation services and often end up delegating company resources to this role. However, as well as committing the investment associated with the cost of a delegated corporate resource for this purpose, the result is not obvious in terms of the quality and effectiveness of the translated content.
For this purpose, we support a web-based tool for the purchase of our translation services that reduces time waste and financial investment.
In order to enhance our services, we have identified new software that allows us to further connect with the tools used by our clients to sell their products or present their companies online.
A Smart company for Smart results
We have identified specific software that allows our customers to connect the main CMS systems that host their sites: Magento, WordPress, Joomla and Bitrix.
Through Smartcat we are now able to integrate with all the data coming from your CMS.
Connectivity to various applications, process automation and data synchronization are among the main requirements of today's customers. These strengths will become increasingly critical over time.
Traditional software vendors charge you a fortune for the use of their integrations and APIs. In contrast, Smartcat's open APIs and dozens of pre-built integrations are included, without strings.
How we use Smartcat
Translations Universe provides professional, human translation services in 33 languages and 16 subject areas. Having overcome the practice of sending emails and exchanging content to be translated offline, the world of translation has also taken giant steps, integrating with existing IT systems.
Through the Smartcat software we are able to generate a key that the client will insert in the plug-in he uses for his translations.
Let's say a potential customer has installed the WPML plug-in for WordPress. WPML is a plug-in that translates and manages translations for the WordPress CMS. It offers several solutions including linking to specific translation service providers.
