BeLazy Early Automators Program
Monitor your jobs coming from translation management systems or vendor portals. Approve
them automatically to get more work. Get your projects straight into any business
management system – such as XTRF, Plunet, Protemos or the system you developed.
Reassign your vendors and deliver automatically.
See all the projects offered to you in multiple vendor portals and translation management systems on our aggregated project feed without having to have many browser tabs open. Create the projects in your business management system at a click. Stop having to work in multiple systems for the same project – your business management system should take care of everything. Drive the full project cycle from your own business management system, including vendor reassignment, to delivery in your customers’ systems. Cut project management overhead by up to 90%.
Our customers report an average increase of 25% in the revenue from customers they have introduced BeLazy for. Besides customer satisfaction through faster project placement, BeLazy also gives you a competitive edge in auction-based portals. The auto-approve functionality allows you to set up rules to automatically accept and approve certain types of jobs even if nobody is in the office. For example, jobs in your most common language pair from a regular customer, or those that are less than 500 words and have a delivery deadline of at least one day.
Your customers will appreciate it if you use the auto-approval and automated project management. They can place an order with you and get instant confirmation even outside of working hours. They know that you can take more work and deliver reliably if your project managers don’t get stressed out by the increased throughput. They understand you scale better than your competitors.
Copy-pasting and file downloading are tedious, error-prone, and boring. Project managers who are file shufflers usually leave a company within two years. This results in added training time, less reliable and less competitive workforce, clients’ churn even. Service level with the customers can also be affected by a constant change of contact persons. Let automation do the repetitive work, and provide a real career path for your people in customer relationship management or technology expertise. You decide: burnout or margin?
With our APIs you can push any project from a multitude of sources into your proprietary business management system or connect to almost any data source. Do you need to translate Facebook posts, pick up projects from JIRA entries, or keep a project register in Google Sheets? We have also created an Integromat app that can plug in virtually any widely used system into BeLazy in a matter of minutes. Need to integrate with a content management system? Tools like Xillio or iLangL or your own integrations can be easily plugged into BeLazy.
If you have built your own business management system, you can extend its functionality dramatically with BeLazy’s connectivity capabilities. We have designed our APIs to provide robust connectivity, value mapping and exception handling functionalities. Developing software against other companies’ systems is troublesome: you can never be prepared for the unknown circumstances, you don’t have a sandbox system, and usually you may not manipulate data. We have been working on the BeLazy infrastructure for years to provide software developers with the ideal experience: if you connect once to BeLazy and establish the first connection, connecting to new content sources or translation management systems later is a piece of cake. We can be your connectivity centerpiece and you only maintain a single connection. This decreases integration costs dramatically, and enrolling new customers with new systems can be done almost immediately.
Let’s face the truth: Continuous localization projects ordered from the largest translation companies in the world are only continuous towards you. There is no other technology spanning the entire supply chain besides BeLazy, and your vendor’s subcontractors often manage your projects manually. This means a higher chance of late deliveries and information lost in the process. Automation can solve this. BeLazy is democratizing the integration stack, making it available for any vendor in your supply chain – down to the translator level.
With a continuous localization workflow that does not provide automation throughout the supply chain, your vendor has to wait for the project managers of their vendors to pick up the project. In turn, this company waits for the translator and the reviewer to confirm they’re available to work. You lose precious time. With the right setup, your project request can reach the translators in a matter of minutes. As things stand today, the language service providers take the lion’s share of the time allocated for a job, whereas translators are not left with enough time to do creative work and research. With BeLazy’s automation, you only need to budget for the creative time.
You put a lot of work into negotiating the terms of cooperation. With manual processes, companies strive to meet the SLA but don’t always succeed. If you request them to incorporate automation in their processes and those of their vendors, you’ll eliminate the risk coming from the intermediaries: overwhelmed project managers, holidays, and out of office hours coming from time zones. If you automate all these recurring processes, you only depend on the timely delivery of the actual linguists. Automation also gives you the chance to renegotiate your minimum fees: there are fewer human touchpoints in such well-established processes. Regardless of the automation, don’t forget that linguists still have higher overheads for small jobs.
Access to automation technology used to be the privilege of the world’s largest translation vendors. With BeLazy’s you can now achieve the same service level with the vendors of your choice. When you select your vendors for your projects and languages, you can look for the best quality and reliability rather than a large technology team. No matter if you want to work with single-language vendors, one or many multi-language vendors or even freelance translators, with BeLazy’s automation you have the guarantee of a sound process.
BeLazy’s vendor portal API allows you to push any kind of content into BeLazy and retrieve the translated version. Instead of integrating with your translation providers’ custom APIs that want to lock you in, or settling for a primitive hot folder approach, you can quickly implement integration into BeLazy and ensure flawless processes at your providers. If you need that, BeLazy will also take care of bundling the jobs to find the best balance between speed and project size, saving you costs.
