Language goes West

Tower of BabelOne hour translation said it has released another version of WeST – software that can localise websites for other languages.

The software works by using lines of Javascript into a site’s template. It then counts the number of unique strings and gives translators an InContext interface, letting them translate directly onto the site.

The updated software also lets people based in other countries to access WeST, look at the translation and give their own feedback.

The company claims that it’s a cost effective way of providing local versions of websites without plunging much time and money into localisation.

One Hour Translation claims to be the fastest professional translation agency in the world and the largest online.  It has a community of over 15,000 translators and offers medical and legal transcription services as well as email translation, API and CMS translation plug ins too.
