LEHI, UT–(Slator– October 30, 2018) – Lingotek | The Translation Network announced today its latest integration to ensure higher translation quality with Xbench, a localization quality tool created by ApSIC, a provider of technical translation and software product localization. Xbench reads many common CAT bilingual formats including SDL Trados Studio, memoQ, Memsource, Wordfast, TMX and XLIFF, among others. It provides simple and powerful quality assurance (QA) and terminology management in a single package.  With ApSIC Xbench, users can organize and search bilingual reference terminology and conduct powerful searches and QA checks to boost the quality of translations.

The Lingotek Xbench Connector simplifies the process of analyzing translation quality using Lingotek’s powerful translation technology, coupled with Xbench. With the click of a button, users can export an Xbench Package (.xbpkg) for quality analysis in Xbench. They can, in turn, leverage their investment in Xbench checklists and QA workflows to flag potential quality issues, then correct them in the Lingotek Workbench.

“By creating an integration with Xbench, we are able to help our customers leverage one of the most widely used third-party quality assurance and terminology tools in the industry,” said Rob Vandenberg, President, and CEO of Lingotek. “The ability to combine Xbench checks and fix issues in our workbench using our LQE features will be incredibly valuable for tracking and monitoring, showing trends, and ultimately increasing quality over time.”

The Lingotek Xbench Connector adds a wealth of powerful translation quality assurance features right on Lingotek’s cloud platform,” said Josep Condal, Managing Director of ApSIC. “Lingotek users can take their translation quality to the next level thanks to the seamless integration that is now available between both tools.”

Once the connector uploads the XLIFF files that are in Xbench, a linguist can then run quality checks (including their own custom Regex), identify segments with quality issues, then navigate from Xbench directly back into the specific segment in the Lingotek Workbench to fix the issue.

Lingotek – Inside Connectors offer out-of-the-box integrations with all of the most popular web applications for customer relationship management (CRM), content management systems (CMS), eCommerce platforms, knowledge bases, product and support documentation, social business software, marketing automation suites, desktop files, and even software.
