Translation management software platform provider recognized in the “Content Creation” category
NEW YORK – December 2, 2014 – Smartling today announced that it has been named to this year’s EContent 100, an annual listing of the companies that matter most in the digital content industry. Smartling was recognized in the “Content Creation” category. The company’s translation management software platform helps companies increase revenue, speed time-to-market and fully capitalize on today’s global opportunities by streamlining translation and localization processes for multilingual Web, mobile and other digital content.
Each year, EContent Magazine’s staff and contributing editors review the previous year’s winners, as the starting point for the new list. The judging panel then votes and debates on new nominees to round out the Top 100. Companies appearing on the list for the first time are new to the digital content scene, reflective of an emerging trend in the industry, or older companies that have demonstrated renewed vigor in the field.
“This year we had three new judges and lots of new companies to consider,” said Theresa Cramer, editor of EContent Magazine. “Congratulations to all of the companies on this year’s EContent 100 List and kudos on all they contribute to the digital content industry.”
“Digital content is a company’s most powerful asset,” said Jack Welde, co-founder and CEO of Smartling. “When the right content is developed, it can drive brand awareness, revenue and customer engagement. So just imagine the ROI that can be achieved by translating content for multilingual audiences. Smartling is all about helping companies make the most of their digital content by easily, efficiently and affordably translating it to fully reflect the way their customers live, act and speak.”
