Smartling Grows Enterprise Customer Roster: Accelerates Global Expansion for YouSendIt, Glassdoor and 99designs

March 6th, 2013


Smartling (, the cloud-based enterprise translation management company, today announced three new customers — YouSendIt, Glassdoor and 99designs — using its flagship platform to manage their fast-expanding translation and localization needs. From business documents, websites, web applications, and mobile apps to catalog feeds and long-tail digital content, Smartling manages all translation requirements to ensure online and offline content is up-to-date and in the native language of every region.

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.

YouSendIt, Inc, a leading cloud file collaboration service, is using Smartling’s enterprise software platform to pilot their website and web app to Dutch and French speaking customers, and to expand internationally. Glassdoor, the social jobs and career community, selected Smartling’s Global Delivery Network (GDN) to launch localized English-language versions of the Glassdoor site to visitors in the UK, Canada, Australia, and India. 99designs (, the largest online design marketplace in the world, relies on Smartling to bring its service to French, German, Italian, and Spanish speaking visitors. “The companies we support understand that bridging the language gap is the last barrier to delivering dynamic, localized customer experiences that close sales and produce new sources of revenue,” said Jack Welde, founder and CEO, Smartling. “We are filling that gap with enterprise technology that makes translation an integrated part of the business process, not an afterthought.”

The Smartling Translation Management System gives companies real-time visibility into and greater control over their translation projects and makes worldwide deployment of translated content faster, easier and more accurate.

“Smartling gives us a competitive edge with a powerful cloud-based translation management solution that allows all our content to stay in sync, no matter what format or language,” said Steve Izzo, VP of YouSendIt.

Smartling enables translation at the speed of business today, with flexible, iterative content updates, collaborative workflows and continuous deployment. Smartling puts the entire translation process in the cloud, improving quality and speeding deployment exponentially — while meeting the quality requirements of the largest consumer web and mobile companies as well as the Fortune 500 and Global 2000.
