TAUS Webinar - Introduction to the Gengo API Ecosystem Presentation Transcript

  • 1. TAUS Translation Technology Showcase Webinar Matthew Romaine CTO & Co-Founder October 2nd, 2013
  • 2. Today you’ll learn about Gengo and how we provide massive translation scalability through our open API ecosystem, which follows standard principles and is easy to integrate and work with.
  • 3. What does “massive translation scalability” really mean? Tools and processes to handle any volume of translation – scaling up and down efficiently. For customers – an interface that enables submitting content in variable quantities, quickly. For translators – tools that enable completing quality translations in large and small volumes, quickly. Web API
  • 4. Supporting our scalability Infrastructure Units (words or characters) translated since launch. Translators Possible only with 9,000 (and growing) community of qualified translators. Languages Support for many source and target languages. 100,000,000 58
  • 5. Getting it done Customers Submit Easy integration with online documentation, free Sandbox, popular client libraries Translators Translate Regularly improving job delegation and notification processes Through API REST-based endpoints, JSON-based payloads.
  • 6. 2 “TOps” Team (Internal) 9,000 “Lay” Translators (Contractors) 75 Senior Translators (Contractors) 100,000+Candidate Translators Our Translator “Pyramid”
  • 7. 5 Steps to Quality 1.  Testing 2.  Training (PDFs) 3.  Educating (glossary, etc.) 4.  Reviewing (spot-check, etc.) 5.  Feedback
  • 8. API Ecosystem – enables … •  “plug-in” translation for any platform •  scaling submissions •  flexible UI/UX •  flexible integration types •  working with other APIs (TMs, speech-tech, MTs, …)
  • 9. Key API Features 1. Submit any number of jobs simultaneously Multiple jobs in one request 2. Receive callback notifications when job statuses change Pending, reviewable, approved, etc. 3. Submit comments with jobs (and afterwards) Give context, links, images to translators for each job 4. Receive notifications when communicating with translators Be notified when translators leave questions or comments 5. Request revisions and give feedback API-driven means every feature has an API
  • 10. Example API Integrations •  User reviews •  Product descriptions •  Social Media •  Articles •  Guides •  Manuals •  FAQ’s •  Video Captions from $0.05 / word Fast (91% < 24h) B2B2C, Video Captions Let users decide what they want translated. B2B, UGC Translating all product descriptions. B2B2C, UGC Let users decide what signs they want translated.
  • 11. API Ecosystem Components Online Documentation Freely accessible, with sample code and examples. Free Client Libraries Open source, in popular programming languages, all on Github. Simulation Environment Free, open Sandbox for testing integrations before going to production.
