XTM International announces XTM Cloud, the first totally scalable, real SaaS translation productivity platform
Independent language technology provider, XTM International delivers the world’s first industry Open Standards based SaaS translation solution available for freelance translators, LSP’s and enterprises.
Gerrards Cross, UK – September 2010 – XTM International is proud to announce the release of XTM Cloud. XTM Cloud is a totally online Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) computer assisted translation tool set, combining translation workflow with translation memory, terminology management and a fully featured translator workbench. XTM Cloud has been designed to make organising and delivering excellent translations easier and more efficient.
The launch of XTM Cloud means independent freelance translators have access to XTM for the first time. With a common sense, low-cost subscription model (prices start at €10/month or €108/year), translators can be totally independent, collaborate in real time with other translators or involve clients in the workflow. Existing translation assets can be uploaded and managed real time from within a browser, so that they are available to the people who need them, when they need them. With a live project dashboard, unique file handling features and an efficiently designed translator workbench, XTM will make a difference to any size of organisation.
XTM Cloud is scalable and has proven enterprise credentials with many LSPs and enterprises already benefiting from the intuitive and powerful features. Now XTM Cloud can be easily purchased via credit card by translators, agencies and businesses worldwide through www.xtm-intl.com/xtmcloud XTM International’s online purchase portal. For those looking for a real online translation tool XTM Cloud is the first truly functional web based translation tool.
LSPs can take as many concurrent licences as they need to run their translation workflow seamlessly. Integration requirements are accounted for via a feature totally unique to XTM Cloud - Open API and web services. Unlike other SaaS translation tools XTM Cloud opens up the possibility for LSP’s and enterprises to connect with third party applications such as machine translation and content management systems to create a new level of interconnectivity and workflow automation.
“To date we have seen many software vendors marketing SaaS translation tools, but too often the solutions have been a hybrid of SaaS and desktop software. Inevitably this is complex, inefficient and does not maximise the full potential of the internet. With XTM Cloud our aim is to provide our customers with a set of easy to use and effective translation tools, competitively priced and available for the first time to freelancers; but with the potential to scale all the way to the enterprise. The industry has been moving towards online and browser based solutions for a while, this is a big independent step forward and we are confident that XTM Cloud will be met with approval.” says Elliot Nedas, Business Development Manager.
Additional features such as the optional XTM Portal provide XTM Cloud users with a fully customisable customer-facing web shop, directly connected to XTM. This enables their customers to upload files, receive a quote, pay online and then check the status of their projects. Once the translation is completed the customer can download the target documents.
In late 2010 XTM Cloud users will be able to connect with each other in a new online community called XTM CloudSource. Translators will be able to register their skills and availability and seek new opportunities with LSPs and clients. Language service buyers will be able to connect with suitably qualified vendors via the new service.
