Lingotek to Deliver More Localized Community Translation for Adobe

Software Giant to Use the Web-based Collaborative Translation Platform™ to Enable Community Leaders to Better Distribute and Collaborate on Translation of Regional Content

DRAPER, Utah -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Lingotek, the leader in collaborative translation technology, today announced that Adobe Systems Incorporated (Nasdaq:ADBE) has chosen Lingotek’s Collaborative Translation Platform™ to simplify community and “crowdsourcing” translation projects worldwide. With Lingotek’s web-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform, Adobe will create a decentralized translation model that will empower community leaders across the globe to set up and manage independent translation efforts in their regions. This will help ensure more accurate and timely translation of a much larger number of documents important for the individual markets.

“Working with Lingotek, we are streamlining the process by enabling recognized leaders within each global market to distribute and collaborate on individual translation projects with their existing communities. It’s a quality engagement and educational tool for our foreign markets.”
“Localizing our product and service materials is critical to ensuring our customers worldwide get the best user experience possible,” said Francis Tsang, director of globalization, Adobe. “Working with Lingotek, we are streamlining the process by enabling recognized leaders within each global market to distribute and collaborate on individual translation projects with their existing communities. It’s a quality engagement and educational tool for our foreign markets.”

Lingotek enables managers in each of Adobe’s markets to have more control in the localization process, letting them upload new projects, assign projects to translators and communities, check the status of current projects and download completed documents. As a result, they can ensure translation projects are done in time to release products or services around the world simultaneously, with all content accurately translated with sensitivity to every colloquial nuance of the native language and country. The platform:

  • Enables flexible and alternative workflows and integrates with content management systems
  • Provides content owners a dashboard for managing and assigning content including the ability to alert translators and communities of projects
  • Creates a translator scoreboard along with voting and leader boards
  • Captures translations for future use through Translation Memory
  • Allows managers and translators to work from any location with internet access.

“By using Lingotek to distribute and manage translation projects from each community, Adobe can get more content into more languages than was possible managing the efforts completely from their California headquarters,” said Robert Vandenberg, CEO, Lingotek. “This decentralized approach facilitates the localization process for the entire team.”
