LEHI, UT--(Marketwired - January 12, 2017) - Lingotek | The Translation Network announced its highlights of 2016, which included a new translation CAT tool, several new connectors, enhancements to its translation management system (TMS), and new strategic partnerships. These additions to the company's tech-enabled translation and language services provide agile processes that can help enterprises improve their operational efficiencies, increase their delivery of multilingual content, and reduce the overall cost of translation.
"The product innovations and partnerships we've created in 2016 will pave the way for success in 2017-- for both Lingotek and our customers," said Rob Vandenberg, President and CEO of Lingotek. "By constantly innovating and customizing for our enterprise clients, we're creating the cutting-edge tools and tech-enabled services they need to digitally transform localization. Our customers appreciate that integrated, cloud-based translation makes it easier to deliver the continuous, personalized multilingual content that global customers demand."
New Translation Products
In 2016, Lingotek introduced the only real-time translation review tool, the In-Context Workbench (ICW). The ICW immerses translators in a dynamic visual experience, bringing translation, formatting, and review together in real time and in one place.
Another product addition in 2016 was the Lingotek - Inside Filesystem Connector, which lets users quickly add content, request translations, and pull completed translations right from the desktop. It easily translates files stored on any file system, such as shared drives, Google Drive, DropBox, and more. Lingotek - Inside Connectors are the industry's only multilingual APIs to offer out-of-the-box integrations with the most popular web applications: CRM, CMS, eCommerce platforms, knowledge bases, product and support documentation, social business software, marketing automation suites, desktop files, and even software localization.
TMS and Connector Enhancements
Lingotek remains dedicated to the continuous improvement of its translation management system (TMS) and connectors. With the addition of automated spelling and grammar checks, linguists are able to check their work for misspelled words and grammatical errors in over 20 languages.
The Lingotek - Inside Drupal 8 Module was released simultaneously with the launch of Drupal 8. The company was the first to introduce an integrated translation integration for Drupal 8. At DrupalCon Dublin 2016, Lingotek's session on "Drupal 8 Multilingual APIs: Building for the Entire World" was voted a Top 10 Session by attendees.
The Lingotek - Inside Salesforce Connector was updated in 2016 to automate the translation for knowledge base articles and to make document repositories multilingual. This gives Salesforce users the power to build consistent, up-to-date content that is fully integrated within the Lingotek cloud-based TMS.

2016 ended with Lingotek earning a spot on the eContent Magazine list of the Top 100 in the Digital Content Industry. The company was also named a Top Language Services Company this year.
