Increase global sales with WorldLingo

Businesses that present their websites only in English are losing $10 million in lost sales per year, according to Harvard based Forrester Research.

Michael Putnam, from Forrester Research, said up to 46% of businesses turn away international orders because they do not have the processes in place to translate them.

A newly formed company, called WorldLingo, has a solution that will help capture these lost sales.

WorldLingo is a specialized translation agency focused on e-commerce and Internet communications.

The company provides clients with on-line translation software, which can translate eight languages to and from English.

The languages covered by the software, which can be found on the WorldLingo site, include Japanese, German, Spanish, Chinese, French, Italian, Russian and Portuguese, which makes up 77% of all non-English speaking Internet users.

A key strategic advantage is that WorldLingo is the only service that offers translations to and from Asian languages.

WorldLingo is unique from other online translators in that it also has a staff of specialist language translators, which will improve the machine translation if required.

WorldLingo's translators have a high degree of professionalism and integrity because they all have to sit and pass an entrance examination.

The examination covers the translator's language capability, translation skills, and learning capability. All of WorldLingo's translators are native speakers, and all translations are carefully proofread.

Each team member is an expert and is there to ensure that the services meet with your expectations.

The integrated combination of human translations and machine translations is not offered by any other company.

The Chairman of WorldLingo, Phil Scanlan, said the WorldLingo Website Translator (software) could be used on Websites, without altering its content.

"It is a simple process to add the WorldLingo Website Translator to your Website," Mr. Scanlan said.

"We provide you with the necessary HTML code to make the addition of the translation software."

WorldLingo will also send you monthly statements that display a Websites translation profile.

"Some languages will show significant demand, and these are the ones in which you may wish to consider a professional human translation."

WorldLingo can also refer you to a list of specialist web localizers.
