About GlobalLink

Companies of all types and sizes are globalizing their businesses and tapping revenue streams from across the world. To accommodate a company’s growing worldwide visibility, TransPerfect provides website and software localization, GMS (globalization management system) software products and enterprise-level, professional translation services to companies focused on gaining worldwide brand recognition.
TransPerfect enables clients to localize their websites while drastically reducing the time, effort and costs associated with not only the translation process itself, but each area of workflow surrounding the management of multilingual content. The GlobalLink Product Suite is a modular group of technology applications built and customized to manage the hurdles of localization. Comprised of state-of-the-art proprietary software tools, the modular suite offers a wide range of capabilities. Each product can function independently or as part of an integrated GMS that drives efficiency across the enterprise.
Solutions include:
• GlobalLink OneLink - A Zero-IT Solution for launching and maintaining multilingual websites quickly and cost-effectively.
• GlobalLink Project Director - an enterprise localization platform that provides customized workflows, CMS integration, reporting and multi-vendor management in a hosted or on-premise deployment model.
• GlobalLink TM Server - a robust, reliable and scalable translation memory solution that allows translation memories to be shared in real-time across the enterprise.
• GlobalLink Translation & Review Portal - a web-based, collaborative application that streamlines the linguistic verification and review process.
• GlobalLink Term Manager is a web-based terminology management tool that allows translation managers to modify, review, search or delete existing terms to give a consistent, accurate message, every time.

Key benefits of GlobalLink

Savvy businesses recognize the need to mirror their U.S. approach when expanding their global reach. As competition for international revenue grows, companies will keep pace only by localizing and optimizing their websites. By providing customers with the solutions needed to engage with global customers, GlobalLink enables them to compete worldwide.

The GlobalLink Product Suite allows clients to:
• Deliver local language products, services, applications, training and content in a culturally appropriate manner.
• Use a completely hosted solution or install software on-premise based on IT requirements.
• Ensure that a client will never be charged to translate the same phrase twice, while still maintaining consistency and quality, and keeping turnaround times to an absolute minimum.
• Automate the process of updating and maintaining global content, effectively eliminating internal project management.

They are the best. They have a solid team with high standards for customer service and bend over backwards to make sure that their solution meets your business requirements.

Pros

Super easy to use on multiple CMS's. There are a variety options to choose from in terms of connecting it to your content.

Cons

No real cons to think of for the translation software.

I am the individual who introduced this tool to our team a few years ago and it genuinely revolutionized the way we were working - passing endless numbers of files back and forth via email, struggling with edition control, progress, and coverage. Now that we have it, I couldn't go back, and am looking forward to future improvements so it grows with its clients' sizes and scopes.

Pros

The concept of this software is fantastic - it has all of the bare bones of what has changed the way we function with translations. It's intuitive and we've customized it to support our ways of working. I like the communication field and the ability to approve quotes as it centralizes comms and makes it easy for us to manage projects across different service team members.

Cons

I think it could be taken to the next level with some enhancements that are still in the pipeline. The team is very open to feedback and suggestions, which is great, but I don't find the tool very scalable for large projects or information-sharing. Things like being able to duplicate projects or build in multiple project timelines could help with project management.

Overall good, yet I feel more features that increase the UX could be explored. In addition, for the price of the service as a whole I would expect some more customer centric features. Like the example above.

Pros

It's simple in set-up. You send in a file, it comes back translated. You can attach reference files, make notes, set the date. It's got all the key features you need and it always works, never any bugs.

Cons

It's very basic. I would expect that as the service is quite expensive there would be a library feature which allowed you to search for already translated copy. We have these very basic sentences, for example "thank you for subscribing to the newsletter". We might place this in one location on the site, yet two years later CRM wants to leverage this translation. In order for me to find the translation deck I will have to remember where I saved the original file/named the project. Since all of these decks are part of the Global Link database it would be much more useful if I could just look for it in there.

Customer support has been extremely good. It allowed me as a one-person operation for globalization within the company to deliver the goods without begging for help from IT and other departments.

Pros

Specifically OneLink takes away a great deal of the burden associated with localizing a website that's under continuous delivery. It practically just like point it at your site and you've got a localized site. No need for tons of personnel and infrastructure on the back end.

Cons

No other vendor has a product like this so it ties you to them for the long haul. But the benefits are worth it.
