NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/13 -- Smartling, the cloud-based enterprise translation management company, today announced three new enterprise customers -- Twilio, Shutterstock and Optimizely -- who are breaking the language barrier with the Smartling Translation Management System (TMS). This cloud-based platform accelerates global expansion with agile translation and localization that quickly converts business content into multiple languages. Offering business documents, web sites and apps, mobile apps, catalogs and more in a region's native language means more customer engagement and better results.

Customers rely on Smartling's cloud-based technology, transparent workflows, contextual editing capabilities and rapid deployment across their corporate ecosystem of digital content to go global with unmatched speed and accuracy.

  • Twilio (http://www.twilio.com), the market leader in cloud communications, allows software developers to programmatically make and receive phone calls and send and receive text messages using its web service APIs. The company teamed with Smartling to translate their technical documentation into Japanese in tandem with their Japanese product launch with KDDI Web Communications.

  • Shutterstock (NYSE: SSTK) (http://www.shutterstock.com/), a leading global provider of commercial digital imagery, is using Smartling's Translation Management System to support the localization component across several properties, including Shutterstock and BigStock sites.

  • Optimizely (https://www.optimizely.com), the leading global web optimization company, used Smartling technology to quickly prepare content for global expansion, and manage the entire process of localizing marketing materials in the cloud.

"The biggest opportunity for business today is beyond our borders, and language is the key to unlocking this potential," said Jack Welde, founder and CEO, Smartling. "As more companies play on a global field, translation becomes central to business and our platform makes it faster, simpler and more accurate than ever before."

The Smartling Translation Management System offers real-time visibility into and control over the many aspects of a translation project in one easy-to-use, collaborative platform.

"Like us, Smartling is a cloud-based service, which means they understand how we work and are equipped to handle the translation of our continuous content updates," said Nico Acosta, product manager at Twilio. "We deal with thousands of telecom companies worldwide, so it's critical that as we expand into new countries, Smartling can keep everything up-to-date in every language."

Smartling employs agile translation for flexible, iterative content updates, collaborative workflows and continuous deployment. By putting the entire translation process in the cloud, Smartling exponentially improves quality and speed. Smartling is enterprise-ready with HIPAA, PCI Level 1 and SOC 2 certifications, and meets the rigorous requirements of the largest consumer web and mobile companies, as well as the Fortune 500 and Global 2000.
