WorldLingo and Able International help the Web to become global

WorldLingo and ABLE International's strategic partnership will allow companies to target international customers through multilingual websites and email.

WorldLingo's free email translations will compliment ABLE Internationals globalization solutions that focus on localization.

The need to make Internet communications multilingual is highlighted by recent research from the International Data Corporation (IDC).

IDC figures showed a massive increase in European and Asian Internet use, whose combined online populations went from 19.7 million to 75.6 million in the last year.

It also predicted that by 2003, nearly two-thirds of e-commerce revenue will be created outside the U.S.

WorldLingo and ABLE International both bring vital globalization skills to the partnership.

ABLE International helps companies design, build and support multilingual-enabled websites, software and documentation using Internet-based technology, worldwide language translation coverage, and expert linguistic and technical project management.

WorldLingo's Chairman Phil Scanlan said his company's email translation service will add value to ABLE International's Internet localization service.

"Many businesses on the net think the day they launch their multilingual website through localization, they just need to sit back and watch the orders roll in, but really the work has just begun," Mr. Scanlan said

"Businesses have to be prepared to handle the multitude of foreign language emails they will receive after site localization."

WorldLingo can provide Websites with a free email translation (machine translation) service that will seamlessly translate the messages before they reach the inbox.

"Now, if a business uses ABLE to localize their site to German, they can then use the machine email translation service to gain the gist of the emails from German customers."

WorldLingo also provides an instant quote for the cost of getting the email human translated. Therefore, the initial gist translation can let you know if the email is important to company success, and if it is, you may wish to have it professionally translated by a WorldLingo human translator.
