Rochester, NY – December 19, 2013: Due to the success with their current custom Language Studio™ machine translation engines, Advanced Language Translation has renewed its contract with machine translation technology partner, Asia Online. For Advanced Language Translation, 2013 marked the first full year the company provided machine translation services, and the roll-out of customized engines was a success. In fact, Advanced Language Translation has secured some large accounts thanks to their machine translation service offering. Machine translation customers have greatly benefited from the technology, on average saving 30% on translation costs and 50% on project turnaround time. Advanced Language Translation has created custom engines for clients in many languages including, Chinese, Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, and Indonesian; the company expects to develop 12 more custom engines in the next year.
Advanced Language Translation President, Scott Bass believes the reinvestment demonstrates Advanced Language Translation’s continued commitment to finding the best and most cost-effective translation solutions for its clients. He says, “Our decision to renew our contract with Asia Online is based on what we know our customers need. Automation is redefining this industry, allowing us to offer more cost-effective services faster, but at the same high quality output that we’ve always produced. Our commitment to machine translation demonstrates that we will continue to find ways to bring these kinds of benefits to our clients.” Bass, who has done a webinar for Asia Online to educate others on its technology, is a firm believer that machine translation is the future of the translation industry.
