The International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA) has awarded a 2011 Silver W3 Award to Globalization Partners International for its latest version of its Translation Services Portal (TSP).
“We added several new features requested by clients this year” comments Martin Spethman, GPI’s managing partner, “including a blog, global news feed, global business resource library, translation budgeting tools and connectivity to a variety of web content management and client relationship management platforms, including WordPress, Ektron, Episerver, and RightNow.”
Used by the world’s top hotel chains, interactive agencies, franchises and global Fortune 500, the new version of the Translation Services Portal helps companies lower per word translation costs, minimize project coordination and completion times, and ensures consistency of clients’ branding and content across the globe.
“The Translation Services Portal is hosted for free and there are no licensing charges or IT burden on clients who adopt it,” says Jackie Janeri, Global Client Services Manager. “Clients who need to manage a multitude of translation projects, whether documentation, software, or websites across departments and global markets, appreciate the access and visibility the translation portal gives them to all of their project information.”
