In The Media → New Language Services Marketplace: TDABids.com launches site to public

  • Low 5% fee represents up to 40% savings
  • Online Access, No Software to Install
  • No Minimums, No Contracts
  • Over 2000 Language Professionals

CHICAGO, Nov. 9 / — TDABids.com launched its services for individuals in corporations to buy translation and other language services directly from thousands of independent language professionals for a low fee of 5% per transaction, representing up to a 40% savings over the fees charged by translation agencies for similar services.

TDABids.com provides individuals from corporations with the management tools to process multiple jobs for translations, technical writing, desktop publishing in multiple languages for a fraction of the cost agencies charge. TDABids.com can operate seamlessly with a company’s in-house Language Service Department, or if needed, can become the company’s language service department. Furthermore, the online platform automatically provides users with the most up-to date information, including uniform product updates, as soon as it is available.

TDABids.com satisfies the demands of a market segment that up until now has been ignored. There are numerous sites for language services professionals to advertise their services and bid on jobs for a fee and there are agencies that offer online management tools at a considerable fee. However, TDABids.com is the first site to give individuals in corporations the high-end management tools to upload projects, share projects and request price quotes from multiple language professionals for a fraction of the fee charged by agencies.

TDABids.com is a product of Translatus, Inc., a language management company with over eight years experience managing multi-language projects for some of the world’s leading companies. The company began developing TDABids.com over two years ago. For nearly a year, the product was tested internally by Translatus project managers, a process which led to important product improvements and a more intuitive user interface. More recently, Translatus began to migrate the company’s own clients to the TDABids.com platform with great success.

TDABids.com began as an effort to better our in-house management software,” explains James Guidi, Translatus’ CEO, “but quickly the potential for distribution over the Internet combined with a demand we knew that existed in large corporations for professional language services led to the development of the TDABids.com platform we are launching today”.

The TDABids.com difference:

  • Choose from over 2,000 language professionals or add your own to the database at no extra charge;
  • Direct communication with language professionals: cut out the “middle man” and reduce overhead;
  • Request a price quote or assign a project to the internal Language Service Department in your company;
  • Gain greater control over your projects: track projects online, issue purchase orders, manage multiple projects;
  • Language professionals are not charged any fees or commissions.

The TDABids Database

Originally created and developed by the Translatus operations team, the TDABids Database with over 2000 language professionals has played a key role in the company’s success in the translation and localization industries over the past eight years. The internal database contains an informative profile on translators contracted by Translatus from all over the world. The operations team maintained clear records of contact information, specialties, education and working experience, languages, program and software experience, pricing agreements and rates, along with continuous internal feedback on performance, delivery times and communication.

Registered users are given full access to this database and the TDABids.com team is continually working to maintain, grow and update the information it contains.
