Technology: Overcoming Obstacles

Online Media Translation

Using Technology in New Ways

A pioneer in online media approached TransLingua to provide web and online media localization services in Afrikaans, Arabic, Basque, Bislama, Bosnian, Catalan, Croatian, Georgian, Gujarati, Hebrew, Hindi, Kannada, Kirgiz, Macedonian, Malay, Slovenian, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, and Urdu. Our linguists logged onto our client’s interactive translation terminal, downloaded files, and translated them for a client review phase.

Skilled Resources

The challenge for us was to select linguists who could meet our linguistic standards and work from remote locations all over the world that did not always have reliable high speed internet access. Working with our client to meet the project’s technological needs, we were able to deliver successful translations in all languages–on schedule.
