Solvusoft Reaches 100 Million New Global Users Localizing into 23 Languages

“Managing the localization process across 23 different languages, and content splits between machine and human translation, is too much for us to manage in-house.  It made much more sense to partner with an experienced localization specialist like LocServe to help us navigate this process.” – Jason Geater, Founder, Solvusoft.

Solvusoft Corporation is a Microsoft Silver Partner and leading producer of award-winning utility software. It is a US-based software company serving customers in locations worldwide. Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, they maintain offices in Chicago, Los Angeles, Jakarta, and London. Solvusoft’s products have been downloaded by over 150 million people, in over 170 countries around the world.

The Challenge

In total Solvusoft required the translation of over 17 million words in machine translation and over 100k of key content requiring professional translation. The bulk of this content resided in a web CMS and offline HTML files containing software UI strings, and an INI with software installer resources.

The goal of the localization project was to provide the largest file extension resource database on the World Wide Web, in over 23 different languages. This would enable millions of people around the globe to be able to access this vital information, and build and reinforce the global Solvusoft brand.

The Solution

Translation of complex software terminology was able to be achieved accurately using integrated Smart MT (machine translation) technology. This enabled automatic translation of industry terms quickly and successfully for usable translations without the need for a human translator. This allowed for high volumes to be processed efficiently.

Smart MT technology was utilized to enable automatic translation of complex software terminology. The content included HTML style markup and many placeholders – off the shelf MT engines would corrupt the HTML and attempt to translate or misplace the placeholders but the customized solution for Solvusoft proved effective in maintaining the integrity of the content. In short, the output produced after the machine translation process was instantly ready for publishing, or for key content, ready for further editing by professional linguists

To ensure the highest quality translation, LocServe gathered a team of linguists who had a background in software localization and understanding of industry terminology to translate and edit the UI and web content. Across 23 languages the team collaborated to share queries, maintain a terminology database approved by Solvusoft and share information on the various aspects of the project.

Using a team of expert translators ensured that all website content was created in a culturally sensitive way, and spoke to visitors on a local level. The combination of MT and human translation allowed for the project to be delivered within the deadline, budget, and the quality required in today’s market by international audiences.   

The Result

“The project has been a profound success. We have already served over a million visitors to this section of our website since we launched earlier this year. This is an evergreen resource, so we expect to realize the benefits more in the years to come.” – Jason Geater
