The new document functions are integrated into the Smartling Translation Management System (TMS), which provides an automated, collaborative environment for managing the translation of a company’s digital content. "By adding document translation to their platform, Smartling allows their users to process all digital content, from localization of software files to marketing literature, in the same interface rather than investing in multiple tools," according to market research firm Common Sense Advisory Inc.

Key features and benefits of the solution include:

  • In-context editing. Documents are translated with the layout and content structure that will appear in production, maximizing accuracy and spped.

  • Drag-and-drop ease. To request document translation, customers can simply drag the file into the Smartlilng TMS. The document is processed through the TMS and then returned to the user fully translated.

  • Consolidated Translation Memory. Document translation makes full use of the customer’s secure, private translation memory.

Beyond being cloud-based, which enables such new practices as crowd-sourcing, the Smartling solution’s approach to solving the translation management needs of organizations has caught the attention of a diverse array of global brands, including SurveyMonkey, Foursquare, Vimeo, Kodak, and others. There are a number of solution providers building a presence in the translation software arena, but Smartling looks to be building out one of the smarter (excuse the pun) solutions to meet the growing needs of international businesses.
