Lingo24’s founder and Managing Director Christian Arno explained, “For example, an engineering components company might need a catalogue translated for their websites in other countries. Coach would ensure consistency in their own terminology and style, and automatically customise the level of quality they need”.
“Coach automates some of the most time-consuming parts of the translation process, and can cut costs to the client by between 40 and 80 per cent. Since it enables translators to work more efficiently, they also earn more. It is a gain all round”.
For their innovative work in this field Lingo24 last month won the most prestigious international award in the translation industry. The Excellence Award was bestowed by TAUS, the Translation Automation User Society, at their annual conference in Seattle, USA.
