Achieve More with Subscription-Based Translations
Stepes (pronounced /’steps/) redefines professional language translation services to a modern subscription-based model. We help the world’s leading companies accelerate international business success with simpler, faster, and more cost-effective translation solutions, at scale.

Subscription based business models are disrupting the way companies deliver services and products. Translation is not an exception. Customers today demand simpler and faster professional translation solutions that are on-demand, agile, always-on, and easily scalable. Old fashioned, offline translation services involve complicated processes and unneeded manual touch points that are too slow, overly expensive, and highly difficult to track and manage. This is why you need to take a look at Stepes. We’ve introduced the world’s first subscription-based professional translation model so you can streamline enterprise wide translation activities online and on the cloud.

Enterprise Translation Subscription
Let’s face it, today’s enterprise localization operations involve purchasing the same translation services over and over again, in a highly repetitive business process, regardless if it’s translating website updates, product documents, or marketing collaterals. This recurring business pattern makes it ideal for subscription-based translation models. Old fashioned, offline translation paradigms that rely on manual workflows and disbursed email messages for file transfer, project tracking, billing/invoicing management are no longer efficient to meet today’s agile translation requirements necessitated by the rapidly growing digital economy. This is why subscription-based translation service models are poised to grow exponentially. Stepes is a leader in next-gen enterprise translations that leverage the power of the cloud to deliver unrivaled localization performance. Our industry leading subscription-based translation solutions help our clients beat their competition and get ahead faster in international markets.
Subscription based services are ideal for modern enterprise translations that demand quality, speed, while ensuring scalability. For each business subscriber, Stepes automatically assigns one or more customer success managers to provide real time project support as needed. Next, Stepes linguistic resource managers assign a dedicated team of professional translators (called myTranslator) with the right subject matter expertise to the client’s account. These linguists will work on the client’s translation projects on a continuous basis for the best linguistic accuracy and consistency.
