Enterprise Translation 2.0 – Leaner, Faster, More Cost-Effective.
Are you a multinational company doing business globally? Chances are you’re running enterprise translation operations with a centralized localization management team that works as a liaison between internal business units/departments needing translation support and external language service providers (LSP). There are several major benefits with this centralized approach, such as unified vendor selection, consistent localization processes, translation memory sharing, economy of scale, and better visibility on translation spend. Nevertheless, companies increasingly require agile translation services to localize an ever growing number of small projects with fast turnaround to meet rapidly changing international customer demands. The cost of managing these small or micro projects—file handoff, project quotation, progress tracking, content updates, and delivery can add up quickly, making the traditional process less economical. This is where Stepes Enterprise Translation 2.0 solutions can be a game changer. Our next-gen, AI-powered translation management system increases your internal localization team’s productivity and scalability without increasing headcount. We have redefined professional enterprise translation services by optimizing the people, resources, effort, and processes on the cloud to deliver the best localization results, consistently and continuously.
Stepes offers end-to-end enterprise translation services that use technology to enable, but not replace, human skills for the highest linguistic quality, while achieving efficiency and scale. Our powerful, intelligent translation management platform has a plethora of built-in localization tools such as automated content validation, project director, terminology management, real-time translation memory, translation provision, progress tracking, translation memory server, and dynamic in-context review, providing one-stop enterprise translation services with guaranteed quality and speed.

Enterprise Translation Automation
Traditional enterprise translation workflows involve too many manual touch points which can lead to haphazard QA processes, resulting in lost localization efficiency and poor linguistic quality. Additionally, increasingly complex business translation requirements over a multitude of content types all need to be translated accurately and on-demand. This is why you need Stepes next-gen AI-powered and fully automated enterprise translation solutions to systemically carry out each step of the localization process with precision and speed.
Modern enterprise translation involves specially trained localization professionals (localization vendor managers, documentation managers, project managers, translators, and linguistic reviewers) working together seamlessly to ensure consistent and quality language output. Requirements like terminology accuracy, linguistic consistency, and translation style can only be addressed if all stakeholders work at their best at all times. However, personnel change and people have up-and-down cycles. This is why oversights often can occur, leading to poor translation results, which in turn cause international product launch delays and lost revenue. Even if these personnel issues are effectively managed, translation volume can rapidly increase calling into question capacity and scalability while using the old manual localization approach.
Stepes understands the challenges which modern enterprises face to localize business content with speed and quality, while reducing translation costs on a systematic level. This is why we’ve invested heavily in next generation translation technology innovations. We lead the language industry with translation automation solutions that help multinational companies in IT, life sciences, manufacturing and financial services accelerate international growth.

The Digital Challenge
We live in a global digital economy in which information is fast-changing and distributed through many channels. Multinational enterprises must optimize their corporate communications to connect with customers worldwide and grow business globally. The hyper-connected world has radically changed basic customer expectations about turnaround times. Fast delivery of translation services is no longer a matter of weeks or days; it’s now minutes and seconds.
Today, enterprises must be able to consistently market, advertise, sell, and support online across smartphones, tablets, social networks, and a growing number of Internet of things (IoTs). This is why innovations in translation technology that deliver multichannel and agile translation services when and where customers need them are critical factors for global business success. Professionals rely on networks such as websites, social media, call centers, and live on-site interpretation to perform a growing number of business related tasks. Modern translation solutions that are dynamic, real time, and rendered on all devices are not only possible—they are increasingly a must.
Designed for the digital economy, Stepes disrupts traditional static localization models so multinational enterprises can penetrate into global markets more quickly and efficiently.
Here is a list of Stepes enterprise localization and translation management solutions. Many of these services can be customized to meet the unique global language solution requirements of your own organization.
The World Is Agile
In today’s digital economy, content is becoming smaller, more fragmented, and in need of on-demand translation in minutes and around the clock. Traditional localization models are no longer sufficient in meeting these always-on, agile, and fast translation requirements of the digital age. Stepes professional and on-demand human translation services works perfectly on all devices, and is ideally positioned to deliver quality, speed, and scalability that modern enterprises demand in order to succeed internationally.

Mobile and Artificial Intelligence
Localization industry experts agree that two of the biggest trends impacting the translation industry are mobile technology and AI (artificial intelligence.) In today’s mobile-centric world, everyone is accessing information including translated content on their smartphones. This is why mobile devices will play an increasingly important role in the translation ecosystem. Instant notifications and the ability for linguists to translate anywhere and anytime are essential in the era of omnichannel commerce where content changes quickly, and is in need of on-demand translation in minutes at any time of day. Legacy localization services are no longer capable of meeting these agile translation requirements of the digital age. This is why mobile enterprise translation services like Stepes are poised for massive growth.
Artificial Intelligence is reshaping the way how knowledge workers in many industries do their jobs. For the translation field automatic translation technologies, including the latest neural machine translation algorithms, are playing increasingly important roles in the delivery of enterprise translation solutions. However, machine translations (MTs) alone are not enough because quality translation requires subject matter knowledge and cultural nuances so human translators must be involved to post-edit the MT content. Stepes is the first translation ecosystem to introduce a mobile based platform so translators and subject matter experts can confidently post-edit MT results anywhere and on all devices.
As the world’s #1 provider of on-demand enterprise translation and global language solutions, Stepes is uniquely equipped to help global businesses meet the new challenges of a digital world. Our cutting-edge technology and highly-skilled customer service representatives enable our clients to streamline their enterprise translation & communication processes to achieve faster time-to-market and increased ROI in global markets.
Terminology Management. Simplified.
Multilingual enterprise terminology management is the single most important component of professional translation solutions. However, effective terminology management does require considerable know-how and substantial human resources. This is why Stepes offers a complete terminology management solution for our clients that includes terminology extraction, glossary creation, term definition, translation and on-going maintenance. We employ the industry’s leading terminology management platform TermWiki Pro (Stepes’ sister product) to help our clients create, collaborate, and control terminology content for consistency and accuracy across all cultures and languages.
