Using New Technology To Rapidly Localize Content

Big organizations face the ordeal of getting loads of content translated on a weekly or even on a daily basis. Especially if your company/organization operates in various international markets, your translation needs often surpass the limit to which you can keep track of all your translation projects. Not only does it become difficult to manage all your translation projects, it also becomes a challenge to speed up your project time-lines with so much content to handle.

Is your translation vendor using latest technology?

As far as website localization is concerned, many new tools are being used by translation companies to speed up the project time-lines of their clients and also to save them from unnecessary hassle. One Houston translation services company is also employing the latest technology in content management to facilitate our clients. Let’s see what this latest technology is.

Are you manually exchanging content with your translation vendor?

We talked to a few Portuguese translators, everyone being of the opinion that all companies have different needs and requirements. If you update content on a weekly basis on your company’s website, website localization will become a ‘not-so-easy’ task. Getting your website localized would mean translating all this content into another language. Imagine the number of files required to be sent and received from your translation services vendor in such a case. Using email to pass this material back and forth will delay the projects and updates on your website.

Ever considered system automation?

With new technology being used in the field of translation, you needn’t complicate things by doing everything manually or using email to send and receive files. If you haven’t set up a content management system as yet, contact The Marketing Analysts Translation Services Company as we have a team of competent professionals who can set up an effective content management system for you.

By establishing a connection between your content management system and our translation management system, you will be able to speedily send and receive files from us.

How it works

This link between your company’s content management system and your translation vendor’s translation management system enables large files to be sent quickly for translation. Your translation provider is instantly notified of the received file and can start working on it immediately. When the translation is done, your translation vendor will resend the file to your system. Without wasting any time you can upload your content on the desired location on your website.

This new technology can help save a lot of your precious time, enabling you to speed up your project time-lines which will eventually benefit your business.

Web Strategy Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive, It Just Has To Be Effective

Web Strategy

Web Strategy

Often business success is made by innovative decisions, sometimes by the fall of an exhausted competitor. However, when journalists write about why a business took one course rather than another, they are most interested in identifying a single decision that was made by one person.

In the current economic climate, you can probably think of a number of companies where one person was blamed for an entire company’s demise.  While there are many examples in the news, we tend to overlook some of the more obvious ones that include poor choices in marketing budgets. One example is the number of companies that continue to ignore the importance of professional search engine optimization; search engine marketing; social media; web analytics; content management systems CMS; web translation and localization; and other web strategies.

There are many reasons why Marketing Directors may be hesitant about investing in web strategies.  Some Marketing Directors are overwhelmed by evolving web trends, new jargon and other complexities.  Others believe that web strategy requires substantial investments that don’t payback in their industries.  There are also Marketing Directors that invested in a web strategy once that failed, and will not try it again.

Regardless of the importance that you place on your web site, Internet usage continues to increase.  In the past, having a website meant that your firm was on the cutting edge of technology.  Today, all legitimate businesses have websites, and most recognize that having a website is not only a mark of professionalism, but also a critical component in their sales and marketing strategy.

A successful web strategy requires a continuous and dedicated effort by experienced web professionals. When the responsibilities of web presence are left to inexperienced workers, even the best-intended strategies can backfire and cause irreparable damage to a company’s reputation. In other cases, a company may invest considerable time and money into web strategy efforts and see little or no results.  This is often the case when an employee is given the responsibilities of managing web strategy, but has not received continuous training and kept up with changes.  This is because the formula to achieve high rankings changes continuously. On a regular basis, Google, Yahoo, Live (Bing), Ask and other engines make changes to their ranking algorithms. Therefore, what works today may not work tomorrow for your organic search engine optimization (SEO) or search engine marketing (SEM) strategy. .

With our talented team of professionals, we will develop a solution that gives you a competitive advantage.
