Worldlingo Launches One Click Website Translation

Website Translator breaks down cost and time barriers to translation of websites

WorldLingo, a leading provider of integrated online translation solutions, has launched Instant Website Translator, a new solution that can be loaded easily onto websites to make them multilingual instantly. WorldLingo's Website Translator allows non-English speaking visitors to view an entire website in their own language with a single click. Translations are available in 12 of the world's most popular languages online.

The Website Translator is a web based solution and its code is simply cut and pasted into destination web pages. Updates to translations happen dynamically whenever modifications are made to a web site. This is achieved by means of on-the-fly machine translation technology.

Phil Scanlan, WorldLingo's Chairman says, "There should never be a wrong language to do business in. However, many website owners shy away from translating their website because they believe that substantial investment is necessary. We have broken down the entry barriers to website translation by using fast and dynamic machine translation technology. In this way we have made it easy and cost effective for any web site owner to make their website available to multilingual customers at the click of a button."

Feedback from over 3,000 websites that are using an earlier version to increase their international sales and improve their global communication capabilities, has driven the feature set for this latest release.

"They wished and we delivered," says Phil Scanlan, "The new Website Translator lets users customise the appearance of translated text to match the look and feel of their original site. Clever handling of cookies and JavaScript lets foreign language visitors navigate the entire site, including most importantly, shopping carts where they can complete their purchase. Custom dictionaries, 'do not translate' lists, localise d graphics, and integration with WorldLingo's Translation Asset Management System, raise automated translation accuracy to new levels. Plus it does all this faster then ever before."

WorldLingo's Website Translator provides translations in 12 of the world's most popular on-line languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Greek, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), Japanese, Korean and Russian.
