Website Translation Service Smartling Debuts New Self-Service Platform

Realtime website translation service Smartling is debuting a new self service version of its platform that caters to small businesses as well as large companies.

Smartling offers a large, scale SEO-friendly realtime translation service for websites. The company has a hybrid model which allows you to pick between professional translators, machine translations, and crowdsourced translations.

New features in the platform include a style guide, a “learning” glossary of term for translators, SEO
compliance for all translated pages and crowdsourced management tools. Smartling also offers an enterprise plan for highly trafficked and complex sites that includes API access, SSL support, and additional training and integration services. Companies like Foursquare, IMVU, Scribd and SurveyMonkey have all used Smartling for their translations.

Smartling, which just raised $10 million in new funding, also recently partnered with CloudFlare to allow the web security startup’s users to enable translations.
