ECI LPA Solution

Automatic and Centralized Translation Management Solution

Continuous Delivery, the Future of Translation

ECI’s Localization Process Automation (LPA) solution is a rule-based system which connects the client’s enterprise CMS to the vendor’s TMS, automating translation workflows and significantly reducing tedious manual work. This automated translation process enables us to continuously deliver efficient, high quality, multilingual translations with short turnaround times and low costs. The LPA solution also utilizes a comprehensive, multidimensional linguist pool, along with a TM management system and a QA support system, to deliver the best quality and efficiency.

Automatic Content Fetching

ECI’s LPA solution is designed to enable localization managers and their teams to centrally manage, control and monitor fragmented file transfers and high volumes of multilingual translation projects, to ultimately deliver quality translations on time and within budget.

Automatic File Processing

We are able to adapt to every client’s chosen file format and conventions. By automatically converting files into a universal format, used by our online translation system, the process of preparing files for translation is simplified.

Automatic Analyzing & Quoting

Our LPA solution enables us to provide you with an immediate quotation, bridging the gap between international office hours. If a fixed rate is quoted, ECI can begin translating your document immediately.

Automatic Linguistic Assignment

ECI’s proprietary solution conducts automatic resource allocation based on 120+ linguists' personal attributes, such as academic background, translation experience, nationality and availability. After evaluating these criteria, the best-matched linguist to your specific needs is recommended.

Online Translation & QA System

The online translation system enables translators and PMs to share and maintain TMs. Editors can also utilize our proprietary online QA tools for quality control, greatly improving our overall efficiency, flexibility and translation quality.

Intelligent Data Analysis

ECI’s data-mining solution enables translation team members and clients to monitor the progress of each project in real time. It also provides suggestions, enabling better decision making and strategy development.

How Does LPA (Localization Process Automation) Bring More Value to Customers?

Due to economic globalization, the pace at which companies expand internationally and the amount of content requiring translation and localization are continually increasing. Despite the fact that content is often fragmented and updates are common, clients require excellent translation and localization results without access to increased budgets, forcing language service providers (LSP) to put more effort and resources into project management.

AI, Big Data, Cloud Technology and Mobile Factors Make Localization More Challenging

With the development of technology in global networking and information transmission, frequent updates to product information and content, with a short turnaround time, results in increasingly fragmented content, larger numbers of translation projects and varying file types. All of this extra work ultimately contributes to difficult strategic decision making. Performing quality control within the allotted time and budget requires efficient and effective solutions.

Connector

ECI currently provides an extensive set of content connectors, adapted to some of the world’s top CMSs (E.g. WordPress, Kentico, etc.), as well as TMSs such as Plunet. We also provide API’s for our clients to customize the connectors to their particular file systems, automating translation tasks and greatly reducing the costs of unnecessary manual work.

  • CMS/VCS Connector Fetch untranslated texts automatically or by client-defined rules

  • Email Connector Fetch project requirements according to a predefined format and send to client portal

Robust Localization Management

ECI’s Localization Process Automation solution was created by EC Innovations’ development team to meet our clients’ workflow optimization requirements for multilingual content. Localization Process Automation, based on pre-defined rules, provides interconnectivity solutions including automatic content fetching (between a client’s file management systems and vendor’s TMS and CAT systems), workload analysis, automatic quoting, billing and payment records, TM and terminology maintenance, online support, online query management and online QA and revision. In addition, there is a cloud-based translation tool with integrated instant messenger, meaning translators from around the globe can work 24/7, greatly improving overall translation efficiency.
