How a translation API can save you time, money and hassle

Imagine if updates to your website could be translated into other languages at the click of a button. Every time you posted a blog, it could be instantly sent for translation by professional linguists. And information about new products would be quickly available to all your global customers.

Managing multilingual websites doesn’t have to be difficult and time-consuming. Lingo24’s Translation API is designed to take the hassle out of translating and localising your content for international markets.

It’s a fast and direct way to connect your content management system (CMS) with our translation platform. Our network of thousands of experienced translators is, quite literally just a click away. You can just sit back and relax, as your translations are delivered straight to your CMS with a minimum of hassle.

And if you choose our high quality, industry-specific machine translation engines, then your content will be ready almost instantly.

So what is a translation API?

You’ve probably already used an API (or application programming interface) – even if you didn’t know it at the time. Many websites use APIs to embed Google Maps into their site, or link to sites such as eBay, Amazon or Paypal.

Lingo24’s development team offers a very wide range of APIs to fit content management systems such as WordPress, Drupal, Joomla,  and more. Once it’s installed, you can simply select the content for translation and send it via the API. The finished translation will be sent back, and can either be published immediately or wait for your approval.

What are the benefits?

Quite simply, a translation API can save you time, money, and hassle. You don’t have to spend hours managing your translation requirements, and can concentrate on other projects.

It can help your company expand its global presence faster, and tap into new markets.  It streamlines the process of localising your website, helping you stay one step ahead of the competition. And you can be confident in the quality of your translations, since they are all carried out by carefully-vetted professionals.

For example, the API is an easy way to

  • Keep all your multilingual websites up to date
  • Make sure new product descriptions are available for all target markets
  • Make blog posts available in multiple languages
  • Provide great customer service across borders

Our clients include a major tourism body, which needed to manage content across a number of multilingual websites. By using Lingo24’s API, updates could be sent quickly, ranging from just 10 to several thousand words!

Another customer, a strategic management consultancy firm, needed articles to be translated and returned, ready for publication, to very short deadlines. The API cut the amount of project management time, taking the stress and hassle out of the process.

Our IT research and development team already have a wide range of plug-ins to fit the most commonly used CMSs. Or they can develop a customised one within a very short space of time.
