What is Cloudwords? Cloudwords is a 100% cloud-based platform that puts you and your team in control of your global localization process via automated workflows, a localization marketplace, hosted translation memory, and full visibility into progress, spend, and ROI.

With 300M users in 200 countries, 30 languages on all 7 major mobile platforms, when we need to communicate any update, we require the agility and speed to support our business that we have only been able to find with Cloudwords.” – David Jones, CMO, Shazam Why It Matters: The Challenges of Globalization Globalization is a massive challenge for organizations. Until Cloudwords, there was no solution to address the businessstunting issues associated with pursuing growth in international markets: Lost revenue opportunities Without delivering content, messages, product, and customer experiences in local language, sales and marketing don’t work. And without doing it quickly and nimbly enough, significant amounts of revenue remain uncaptured, and your competition gains share. Unwieldy content explosion Content designed to support sales, marketing, and product is proliferating at exponential rates. Managing the creation and delivery of this content grows more challenging by the day, but trying to do so on a global scale is nearly impossible, and brand consistency continuously weakens, without a content globalization platform. Non - global technology Marketers increasingly rely on technology to perform better. Yet the marketing software, and content management systems in place aren’t inherently capable of driving engagement and demand on a global scale. Wasteful processes Executives have come to tolerate highly debilitating processes in their organizations that support globalization efforts. Team members are wasting exorbitant amounts of time using email and spreadsheets as their localization management tools, cutting and pasting tedious quantities of content, and performing other time-consuming, error-prone manual tasks. Expense Localization is one of the most expensive budget line items for enterprises of all sizes, yet few companies even know the aggregate spend on this vital business process, let alone recognize that they are spending more than they need to. 400 Mon tg o mery Str e e t Ste 1200 | San Fra ncisco, CA 94104 U SA | p h +1 415 394 8005 | CLO U DWOR DS.COM
