Due to globalization, today teams located in different parts of the world carry out most of the software
development processes. Off shoring and outsourcing help enterprises to reap several benefits such as cost savings,
labor flexibility, ensure quality and capability, focus on core competency and so on. However, the greatest issue
faced by enterprises when expanding into new markets is the issue of offering content to multilingual and
multicultural customers in the languages of their choice. Since reaching as many markets as possible can help
enterprises not only in maximizing the investment but also in revenue growth, delivering a localized user
experience to all key countries is necessary to reap a product's revenue potential.

The software industry today is one of the most global and content rich markets. This is because any software
product comes bundled with user manual, technical specifications, online help, user interface, product
information, help guide, instructions, online tutorials and so on. There is a need for this high volume of content to
be localized to address new markets and accelerate revenue growth. Hence, enterprises need software language
technology solutions to translate the content swiftly and accurately to the languages that the customers
understand.

With software localization playing a critical part in the release cycle, enterprises face the challenge of translating
millions of words in the user interfaces, online help and resources to at least 50 languages in no time. This can be
easily achieved with an automated translation solution since it accelerates global communication to support new
market expansion, deliver a positive customer experience and enable instant access to information in a user’s
preferred language. Here is a look at some of the advantages of investing in a best of the breed automated
