On April 24, 2009, the unveiling ceremony of the Chengdu Global Multi-language Information Processing Center and multi-language information industry seminar was held at the Chengdu Hi-Tech Zone. EC Innovations, one of the largest localization and translation service providers in Asia, was among the first batch of localization and translation enterprises authorized by the municipal government to enter the center. The multi-language information industry seminar featured a presentation by Ms. Du Xiaofen, head of the EC Chengdu office.
China’s rapid economic growth and increased international communication has fueled a soaring increase in the country’s translation industry. Over 130 Fortune 500 companies have gathered in Chengdu, which has recently seen a sharp rise in demand for professional translation services. In response to this demand, the establishment of the Multi-language Information Center will greatly enhance the provision of translation services. Additionally, the EU Multi-language Processing Center will be an excellent resource for domestic localization and translation enterprises providing multi-language solutions for EU companies.
At the multi-language information industry seminar, Ms. Du introduced the valuable experience that EC has gained through providing professional services to many major global and domestic companies and its comprehensive quality assurance system. As one of the pioneers in the translation and localization industry in China, EC has consistently focused on software and website localization, multimedia localization and desktop publishing services. After 12 years of accumulation and continuous efforts at improving the overall client experience, EC has earned a sterling reputation in this industry with its competitive advantages. Meanwhile, EC has made a large investment in developing a TMS–Translation Business Management System which integrates the management of global resources, visualizes the monitoring of project workflow, and classifies and leverages translation memory and subject terminology. This system has dramatically increased productivity and helped reduce client costs. (For updating projects, EC offers different price discounts for repetitions and different levels of matching words).
By entering the center, EC will continuously provide comprehensive language solutions to enterprises all over the world, and is excited about helping domestic companies that are willing to explore the international market to overcome difficulties in language barriers and cross-cultural adaptation.
