Gaining the right visibility

With high impact products that can make such a huge difference to clients globally, it was essential for UE Systems to be able to showcase its work. This is where translation — and the services of Wordminds — came in.

UE Systems’ research and solutions have been developed over four decades, explains Alexandru Cretu, Project Manager for UE Systems at Wordminds. Like any business, [it’s] interested in yielding the maximum intellectual and monetary value out of [its] work and translation is important for allowing [its] solutions to reach as many customers as possible.

The project

When UE Systems approached Wordminds it was interested in a number of projects, the greatest of which involved translation of its website. This would be an invaluable step that would expand the company’s local support offering for many international clients.

The main concerns we had before translating the website were the logistics of such a task, along with the difficulty of translating technical terms, says Mario Barbosa, Marketing Coordinator at UE Systems. We hadn’t used a translation service before, only freelancers, and that had been labour intensive in terms of quality checking.

Alexandru describes how Wordminds went about managing such a complex and extensive undertaking: From the first mention of a potential project, all the way through to post-delivery support, we manage[d] the work in phases. We ensure[d] the workload and responsibilities [were] distributed to each department involved in the project accordingly, enabling each area to do what it does best.

Expanding into key markets

The team at Wordminds began by translating some articles, which later developed into the successful translation of the entire website into five languages. This enabled the company to expand into Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Chinese and Indonesian markets and established UE Systems as a world leader in its industry.

Expanding our website into other languages was a fundamental step [in] establishing our global footprint and turning us into a multinational company, explains Mario. Having the website in multiple languages allows us to engage with our audience in those countries in their native language. This also ensures that our clients are aware they have local support.

The result

The impact of the project was significant, and with limited exposure to the world of translation services before, UE Systems was appreciative of the supportive service and efficiency of the process: Wordminds targets multiple languages, works quickly and with transparency. The team [was] able to deliver quality translations for even the most technical terms, and [was] able to work directly on our website, avoiding all the hassle of managing extra documents.
