Cloudwords and Acquia Partner to Deliver New Integration for Multilingual
"Cloudwords for Drupal" Delivers a First for Enterprise Companies
Seeking Translation Management Capabilities for Drupal-Based Websites
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- Cloudwords, the
first cloud-based translation management application, today announced
the launch of Cloudwords for Drupal, a first of its kind integration
with a translation management platform for the world's largest open
source content management system (CMS). Acquia, the enterprise guide
to Drupal, is a key partner in bringing this module to organizations
using Drupal with an integration and automation capability that has
not previously been available. Today's announcement marks a first for
the translation management industry, as Cloudwords will be the first
translation management platform to offer pre-packaged integration
with Drupal 7.
In today's real-time and dynamic global landscape, managing content
changes, multilingual content, and the translation process is
difficult and prone to error. Drupal provides a robust multilingual
foundation, however, translation at scale has been challenging. The
Cloudwords for Drupal module alleviates these challenges with cost,
quality and time efficiency, which has, until now, been unavailable
within the marketplace.
The new Cloudwords for Drupal module ensures that the days of "copy
and paste" or low quality computer-based machine translations are
over. The new module provides a deep integration between the
Cloudwords platform and Drupal 7 to allows users the ability to:
-- Easily define the content that needs to be translated within Drupal;
-- Automatically sync Drupal content into Cloudwords for high-quality
localization and translation via a translation vendor of the user's
-- Automatically sync the client-approved multilingual content from
Cloudwords into Drupal.
Aprocess that once took Drupal users weeks or months to accomplish can
now be completed in a few hours or several days.
"We are excited about partnering with Cloudwords to simplify
translation management. Cloudwords enables site owners to use any
vendor or translator of their choice. It's fast and easy to get up
and running, offers seamle
ss integration with Drupal's existing
multilingual capabilities and provides a streamlined translation
process for Drupal websites," said Joe Wykes, Vice President of
Channels at Acquia.
By partnering with Acquia, Cloudwords is taking the benefits of this
new module directly to organizations using Drupal. This partnership
with Acquia enables customers to benefit from a seamless integration
between Cloudwords for Drupal and Drupal 7, ensuring customers easily
reap the growing benefits of the Cloudwords Translation Management
"It's important to our customers to know they can run a multilingual
website, translate content in an effective manner and be able to
achieve this with both time and cost efficiencies. Until today, this
ability to go global within the Drupal community, simply wasn't
possible," said Michael Meinhardt, Cloudwords CEO. "We are excited to
work with Acquia to deliver Cloudwords for Drupal and extend this
integration and automation to an entirely new set of organizations
that will be able to feel the power of Drupal and experience it as
part of the world's most successful Translation Management platform."
