In the video below, Lingo24’s Head of Engineering and Support, Neil Wilkie, talks about Lingo24’s technology platform and what pains associated with translation it addresses.
Christian Arno, Lingo24’s President and Founder, and Sergio Penkale, our Head of Machine Translation, discuss common challenges in the translation process.
Working hard in the sun. Honest…
When it comes to translation efficiency there are two main things that count: speed and accuracy. To a certain extent it’s a balancing act. Increasing one can lead to a corresponding decrease in the other, and both can affect the cost.
‘So what is an API?’ we hear you cry. We’re glad you asked. An application program interface (API) can be viewed as the bridge or link that allows two or more programs to interact. Even if you’d never heard the term before it’s likely that you’ve used an API.
When it comes to translation buying, cost per word can often be a deciding factor between suppliers. While for a short-term solution being able to negotiate a cheaper price could result in a small cost saving, companies looking to maximise profitability from their international operations are increasingly adopting a more strategic approach.
