Activate your crowd of volunteer translators.
Engaging your "translation crowd" is a powerful way to translate your digital content while building brand loyalty and increasing community engagement. In fact, the bilingual power-users who love your product might produce better results than pros who aren't intimately familiar it. Our partner CloudFlare shared their crowdsourced translation experience to showcase the dedication of their volunteers.
Our platform helps you engage and manage your volunteer network, with simple, yet powerful tools to enable the translation process. If some of the lnternet giants are making it work, it might just work for you too.
- Invite, approve and manage volunteers from the Smartling dashboard
- Style guide and progressive glossary ensure consistency across the crowd
- Leaderboard stats keep volunteers active and engaged
Machine Translation (MT) has pros and cons.
MT is fast and cheap, but the quality is well below human translation. Smartling is not a machine translation (MT) provider, but our platform integrates with several popular MT services, so you can create a fully SEO compatible site in minutes.
MT is a great way to see the power of your new language site, and might jump-start your professional or crowdsourced translation effort. You can choose specific parts of your site / app to be machine translated, and while we recommend customers use human translation for optimal quality, MT can be a valid choice for some organizations.
- Commercially-available MT integration
- Quickest route to a 100% SEO compatible new language site
- Have professionals or volunteers edit or replace the MT on your website or app
