Buenos Aires based Prodeo Hotel selected the cloud-based, 1-click website generator SquareSpace to create and host their website www.prodeohotel.com. It was a great choice to kick-start and establish the online corporate presence in English.
SquareSpace provided neat design, contact forms, analytics but it was lacking in the localization features required to attract foreign-language customers by making the site available in different languages.
Mike Abridello, founder and CEO of Prodeo Hotel, selected Easyling as his preferred translation tool to create the proxy-based live translation of his original site, making it available in 3 additional languages.
Easyling guided him through the following steps:
- Extracting all the text from the original website;
- Providing a word and repetition count for price estimation;
- Quick pre-translation of the site through Google or BING Machine Translation;
- Post editing the text by in-house language experts in the original context and layout (What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get);
- Delivering the translation as an up-and-running, working website on a temporary domain name for final approval;
- Finally, making the translations available under: http://it.prodeohotel.com, http://pt.prodeohotel.com, http://es.prodeohotel.com
While all of SquareSpace’s great features are still available to update the original, Easyling took care of the hosting of the new multi-lingual sites, detecting changes on it and keeping them in sync.
“Glad we found Easyling” – said Mike. “We’ve been looking for such a great complementary tool to SquareSpace. We could continue using SquareSpace for our main site, while the localized versions, created by our in-house translators, are hosted and operated by Easyling in the cloud.”
