GeoWorkz - For Agencies

Language technology has historically been a delicate and expensive balancing act for translation agencies, who need to align with both their customers and their collaborators. This often requires expensive on-site licensing supported by an equally expensive infrastructure. Planning upgrades across customers and collaborators is another challenge, with compatibility and version control issues galore. Until now.

Translation Workspace is the industry’s first on-demand, subscription-based, translation technology solution. Powered by Lionbridge’s proven and acclaimed technology, Translation Workspace lets you drive your business with usage-based subscription models, based on a proven, high-performance, secure, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) infrastructure.

Smart Pay-as-you-Go Subscriptions

Only the Translation Workspace gives you the flexibility to run your business your way, without penalizing you when you grow. While other translation memory tools force you to make major upfront investments and endure lengthy deployment cycles, Translation Workspace is different. We get it – we know the translation business is inherently volatile, with periods of greater and lesser work tied to customer needs and content lifecycles. That’s particularly true for agencies that must serve the language needs of customers and scale up with a mix of in-house and freelance expertise.

That’s why Translation Workspace is the first and only solution of its kind that offers monthly and annual pricing on all subscriptions. You control both the amount of work you want to process and the number of users you need. If your workload changes, you can change your subscription at any time.   And, of course, pay-as-you-go pricing means you’re always ready to accept new opportunities and grow your business – without worrying about the cash-flow impact of large, upfront commitments.

Reduce Software Costs and Upgrade Hassles with On-Demand Functionality

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is quickly becoming the standard for many applications. With Translation Workspace, you have access to all the functionality on-demand including upgrades! This means translators can use superior technology without the expenses and headaches of deploying software. As a web based solution, Translation Workspace requires no infrastructure and no up-front costs.

No More Compatibility Problems

When your freelancers are also Translation Workspace subscribers, you don’t incur any additional licensing costs. Innovative Asset AliasingTM lets you work seamlessly with freelance translators, without the cost, overhead, or risk of providing licenses for them. Forget worrying about which version of the software they use or version compatibility headaches. Everyone uses the same software all the time.

Real-time Visibility on Projects

Translation Workspace gives you real-time visibility into progress of your work. No more hoping a translator or reviewer hits a deadline - and scrambling when they don't. With Translation Workspace, you see the status of every project, and the execution of every translation.

Live Assets™Deliver Lower Costs & Higher Quality

Most TM tools run a routine analysis of source files against a static TM, but what about the new entries in the TM that occur during the translation process? At best, they capture repetitions within a project. Translation Workspace captures every segment in real-time so any new segment for a project that is either a repetition or a fuzzy match is captured during the analysis, an analysis that can predict what will be in your TM during the live translation process. The result? Lower new word counts, greater consistency, and lower translation costs. Only Translation Workspace gives you that insight.

An E-Commerce Gateway to Translation Workspace

Throughout our site, you can find comprehensive resources that enable agencies like yours to get the most from a Translation Workspace subscription. You’ll find information, training materials, product tours, free trials, and other resources to get started and improve your productivity.  In addition, you can manage your account, track usage, access training, download documentation, and submit questions to the customer success team.

The GeoWorkz Directory

Every moment spent looking for new clients is time not spent on billable activities and that adds to the overhead of running a translation business. The GeoWorkz Directory can help by matching buyers and suppliers on Translation Workspace. Inclusion in the Directory is optional and you control your profile. When Translation Workspace customers come looking for a language service provider, they'll know that you have the expertise and experience to meet their needs!
