NEW YORK – May 21, 2015 – Smartling, continuing on its award-winning streak, today announced that its cloud-based translation management platform was selected as the “Best Work Productivity Technology” at the 2015 MITX Awards. One of the largest and most prestigious annual awards competitions for digital innovation in the country, the MITX Awards recognize New England’s entire digital ecosystem, including media, marketing, products, mobile and more.
Smartling’s translation management system was honored in the “Best Work Productivity Technology” category, which recognizes innovative Web, social and mobile technologies that are fundamentally improving how organizations complete tasks through improved collaboration, communication, efficiency and overall output of their employees. All 2015 MITX Awards winners were showcased at a sold-out event held on May 14 at the Marriott Copley Place in Boston.
“The MITX Awards are a celebration of the New England digital community’s game changers: the people and ideas driving the industry forward,” said Amy Quigley, president of MITX. “We’re proud to honor the amazing accomplishments of these creators and disruptors who are igniting innovation in New England.”
Translation has remained a largely manual process – one that deters businesses with perceived notions of cost and complexity. Smartling enables hundreds of organizations to better compete globally and penetrate new markets faster, more efficiently and more affordably than ever before by removing complexity, cost and time from the translation process. With Smartling, companies can leverage human translation for the highest-quality multilingual content while automating the non-linguistic parts of the process, so they can focus on growth with peace of mind that their content is being accurately localized for target customers.
“Clear communication with local customers is the key to growth, and organizations must be able to engage their target audiences around the world using localized, native-language content,” said Judd Marcello, vice president of marketing at Smartling. “Our translation management platform empowers them to do just that by delivering high-quality multilingual content faster and more affordably than ever before. We’re continually striving to help companies improve their productivity, communication and collaboration processes, and being recognized in this year’s MITX Awards strongly validates our efforts in this area.”
