WALTHAM, Mass., April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: LIOX), today announced that its onDemand platform is gaining increasing momentum as the first, enterprise-scale, transactional translation service in the market. In the first quarter of 2014, Lionbridge onDemand added 98 active clients and grew revenue over 210% as compared to Q4 2013.
Lionbridge onDemand is an online platform that enables business stakeholders across the enterprise to quickly and easily order translation of all content types while maintaining brand consistency and controlling transaction costs.
"As various functions across an organization increasing rely on digital content to connect with customers, partners and employees globally, we have found significant demand for 'transactional translation' - an ability to quickly translate a video, webpage, InDesign file, mobile app, or document in order to meet a deadline and still follow corporate policy," said Marc Osofsky, Chief Marketing Officer, Lionbridge. "onDemand is the first transactional translation service that was designed to handle the complexity of enterprise requirements and address multiple content types within an easy-to-use point and click interface."
OnDemand is being used by both existing and new Lionbridge clients. The 98 new onDemand clients in the first quarter span numerous industries such as financial services, manufacturing, life sciences, high tech, advertising, retail and hospitality. The client list also includes some of the world's largest companies, including 15 of the Fortune 500.
"Lionbridge onDemand makes translation easy," said Melissa Borza, Sr. Manager, Americas Marketing Operations at Equinix. "We have content in all different formats and Lionbridge onDemand gives us the best one-stop translation solution while keeping our documents in their native formats. This has sped our time to market by eliminating the need to move translated content into our wide variety of templates. It has been a pleasure working with Lionbridge."
"We use Lionbridge onDemand to translate our product packaging into several languages," said Paul Cuthbert, Marketing Supervisor at GlyMed Plus. "We translate ingredients, directions and warnings into different languages and rely on the accuracy of Lionbridge to fulfill our translation needs. Lionbridge onDemand allows my design team to complete projects within deadlines so we can get our products out to market quickly."
In addition to addressing demand for decentralized translation projects within enterprises, onDemand also makes it easy for a centralized marketing, localization or procurement department to provide a single common interface for all personnel to order translation easily using pre-approved processes. This centralized approach reduces transaction costs, ensures compliance with approved procurement policies and preserves a common brand voice across markets.
