Like many translation companies out there, Creative Word serves some of the big players in the industry, the so-called multilingual language service providers. RWS Moravia is one of their recurrent customers from which they receive constant volumes in many small jobs, that is why they wanted to automate project management.
Small and medium-sized translation companies generally don’t have in-house tech teams to face a project of this nature. Instead, it is common for them to outsource this work, but the truth is that most software firms lack expertise in the field of localization. Coming up with a reliable solution demands not only great coding skills but also knowing the translation industry inside-out.
At the time of the request, Creative Words did not have a translation business management system. However, they have now acquired one and this means we will need to adapt the current solution to work as well with their new platform.
If the request from Creative Words had come before November 2019, then perhaps coming up with a cost-effective solution could have been quite tricky. But by the time, BeLazy had already released its Integromat application, which made it quite easy to integrate all the coming work from RWS Moravia into a Google Sheet — a custom-made sheet.
The integration works for projects coming from a specific client: In the Excel sheet, there’s a line for each project they receive with name, volume, and names of people doing the jobs, which is what we at BeLazy had to map in order to develop it.
Don’t let those manual, operative tasks hold you back. Stay ahead of the competition by introducing automation into your organization.
