Capita Translation & interpreting (Capita TI), one of the world’s fastest growing language service providers, has partnered with 5MS to develop an extension for Magento to make the translation of e-Commerce sites and product catalogues easier to manage, faster and more cost-efficient, through the use of language technology.
The new SmartMATE connector integrates perfectly with Magento to enable a much easier localisation process by connecting the Magento powered e-Commerce site with Capita’s translation ecosystem. Anyone using this multilingual plugin can send content for translation and track the status of all jobs, without having to leave the Magento environment. Once translations are ready they are automatically imported into the relevant Store Views, ready for final checks and publishing. Users can also access their account at any time of day to review the status of their jobs, manage purchase orders and track their spend.
Tom Shaw, Chief Solutions Architect at Capita TI said “There are more than 250,000 live trading websites using Magento, with many of them currently selling, or looking to sell products internationally. This creates a need for a simple way to request professional translation and localisation from Magento. SmartMATE Magento Connect does exactly that – it streamlines the management of global content and provides easy access to the wide range of Capita’s language services. This integration provides a one-stop solution for our clients managing multilingual websites – all from within their Magento platform.”
The benefits of this connector include seamless system integration, a quick and secure set-up process, the elimination of manual tasks, full project visibility, increased sales overseas, reduced time to market and reduced costs.
Jake Mason, Managing Director of 5MS comments “SmartMATE deals with an extremely common problem for Magento merchants who sell internationally. The time-consuming process of requesting e-Commerce content translations are now a thing of the past, as are the constant obstacles of maintaining, tracking and loading the translations to Magento. The SmartMATE extension combined with Capita’s translation services, finally offers Magento merchants a truly seamless process for managing and obtaining their e-Commerce translations.”
To kick start your localisation journey, Capita TI would like to offer all new customers £1,000 off their first translation job (T&Cs apply). If you would like more information on this multilingual plugin for Magento, please visit the dedicated Magento Connect webpage.
