viaLanguage Launches Version 5 of Online Language Portal Solution


Latest version of popular Online Language System adds productivity features and additional tools for customers centralizing translations.

Portland, Ore. – December 18, 2007 – viaLanguage, a leading language translation and localization provider, has just released the latest version of its popular customer translation portal, OLS 5. Using OLS 5, viaLanguage customers can more-efficiently get project estimates as well as submit, track, purchase and retrieve translation projects.

Not only is OLS 5 built on a new technology platform, but this new release provides viaLanguage customers with greater flexibility, more robust reporting and a more-comprehensive 24/7 view into their projects and billings.
“Cutting the time and administrative overhead associated with delivering successful translation projects lets our clients focus on what they do best, instead of managing translation projects,” according to viaLanguage CEO Chanin Ballance. “As our customers continue to centralize their approach to managing translations, having an easy-to-use online environment, that provides tools and information on translations across their departments and lines of business is a must.”

OLS 5 is an especially good fit for viaLanguage customers such as Resurrection Healthcare, which uses OLS 5 to centralize translations across their system of eight hospitals and medical centers, and multiple departments. Not only does it provide them with the ability to track projects by department and facilities, but addresses the administrative overhead associated with allocating translation billings.

In addition to technology enhancements that provide for faster and more robust services, OLS 5 delivers a new set of tools for customers to obtain estimates, process files and view relevant information on their translation jobs. Also, new reporting tools allow for easier export to other applications and new administrative tools allow administrators to more-easily aggregate departmental translation billings and manage user accounts. “On the backend, OLS 5 gives viaLanguage team members the documentation and information they need to apply our Four-Phase Methodology and build quality into the translation process”, according to Michele Smeller, viaLanguage’s Vice President of Client Services. “We focused our efforts on ease-of-use, flexibility and administrative tools, and OLS 5 is a good balance of all three.”

OLS 5 is available immediately and is complimentary to viaLanguage customers. To create an account go to
