Why did GPI build an API?
The internet has evolved a great deal in the last few years and so too has the way it is used. Traditionally a User would navigate on their computer using a browser, complete their tasks, and then log out. Now-a-days a web-application approach isn’t enough.
Users are engaging with businesses using different form factors such as smartphones, tablets and other devices. Hence service providers are moving towards applications and applications as a service model to better converse with their customers.
In an effort to ensure GPI’s services and tools including our award winning Translation Portal reach the widest possible audience, we have built a GPI Translation Services API to more efficiently open our services to external third-parties. Application developers can now begin leveraging our API and build their applications around it. External websites or applications can integrate with GPI services by simply consuming our API.
