Transfluent’s Magento Extension Looks to Take US eCommerce Global
Transfluent today announced the release of the new Transfluent Magento Extension, the easiest way to localize eCommerce websites. The extension, which is now available from the Magento Connect marketplace, gives Magento users the power to translate their entire product catalog to any language, effortlessly.
The Transfluent Magento Extension gives Magento users access to over 100 languages – practically any language that is needed in eCommerce today.Transfluent’s network of over 50,000 skilled professionals is one of the world’s largest networks of translators. This extensive network consists of experts who specialize in various topics – including fashion, sports, social media, legal, and medical.
With the US and EU in talks on a trans-Atlantic trade and investment partnership, and hot growing markets in Asia, the Middle East, and South America, it is becoming crucial for American web stores to gear up their support for multiple languages. Global eCommerce is expected to reach $1.5 trillion this year, and the US will have less than a third of the market. The need for efficient solutions for localizing eCommerce has been apparent for a while, but until today, there has not been a single solution.
The Transfluent Magento Extension has been designed to be easy to use so that any shop owner can use it on their own without the need to pay for expensive consultants. In a typical use case, the entire catalog is first translated into the key languages. Each time new products are added, the translations are updated so that all of the different languages stay up-to-date at all times.
“I am excited to launch our Magento Extension as it will nicely complement our already thriving customer support and content solutions. Localizing your shop, supporting customers in any language, social media marketing – it’s never been easier to go global,” stated Transfluent founder and CEO, Jani Penttinen, who is on a mission to eradicate language barriers from business communications around the world.
Transfluent’s Magento Extension is distributed free of charge in Magento Connect, and the only cost is for the actual human-powered language translations.
Transfluent (http://www.transfluent.com) provides professional language translation for social media, customer services, and apps. Transfluent is the only translation provider directly integrated with Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, Zendesk, Magento, and Weibo.
Transfluent’s customers include some of the world’s largest companies, top-ranking celebrities and athletes, famous universities, and a whole range of leading companies aiming for global markets.
