If commerce is driven by words, global commerce is fueled by translation. Left to right, right to left. Buttons, shopping carts, and romance copy. Websites, emails, and forms. This takes teams of people carefully managing each distribution channel for source content, and it is cost-prohibitive for teams to address each supported language. For companies who want to be local, anywhere…everywhere, Smartling has quickly become the Translation Management System of choice. Slack. Pinterest. InterContinental Hotels Group. WeWork. Brands empowering global commerce rely on cloud-based technology and Smartling to greet their customers in many languages. Whether our customers need to quickly translate website content, software, apps, games, or documents, Smartling is making that happen.
In fact, you might say we’re obsessed with helping brands succeed on a global scale while maximizing efficiencies of doing business around the world. At Smartling, our success depends on your success, and we know that our translation software is paramount to any digital transformation.
