Lingotek Inside - Drupal Enables Community Participants to Translate Content Inside Drupal Applications
DRAPER, UT, May 4, 2011 - Lingotek, the leader in collaborative translation solutions, today announced a partnership with Acquia, the enterprise guide to Drupal. Working together, Lingotek and Acquia will offer Lingotek's Collaborative Translation Software to the Drupal community allowing Drupal community members to translate large amounts of content. Lingotek can now be embedded directly in Drupal through a set of APIs, providing its community members access to unlimited language translations through Lingotek's professional, community or machine translators.
By leveraging the Drupal social publishing system -- which powers two percent of the web -- Acquia helps companies of all sizes easily build and operate extraordinary web experiences. Acquia partnered with Lingotek to offer customers access to reliable, rapid content translation enabling site owners to expand the reach of their communities globally while keeping an eye on costs. Acquia will incorporate the Lingotek translation module into its Drupal Commons community site to facilitate multilingual interactions amongst community members. Drupal Commons is Acquia's social software distribution for building external and internal community sites.
"Internationalization and localization have long been priorities for the Drupal community," said Dries Buytaert, Acquia co-founder and CTO, Drupal project founder and lead. "Lingotek's translation technology helps Drupal site owners deliver multi-lingual site experiences and engage members of a Drupal community site to participate in the translation effort."
"We are excited to partner with Acquia," Lingotek CEO Robert Vandenberg said. "Together Acquia and Lingotek are a powerful combination that will help Drupal's already-experienced customers easily engage with communities worldwide. Increased engagement will help companies extract rich knowledge vital to creating new international opportunities in hot markets abroad."
With Lingotek's platform, content owners can create content and easily invite and connect with community members who can not only view and contribute translations but also rate the precision and reliability of the translation. By combining best-in-class machine translation solutions and real-time community translations, Drupal users will be able to produce "real time" translations quickly while reducing large costs organizations typical handled by translation services.
