In fact, Smartling’s cloud-based platform is now being used by CloudFlare to translate its website and application into 27 languages to start. The German, Indonesian, Portuguese and Norwegian sites are well under way.
Smartling just raised $10 million in new funding. CloudFare recently made waves when it was revealed the security service was being used by infamous hackers LulzSec. And CloudFare just announced a $20 million round of funding.
