In The Media → First Cloud Computing Solution for Corporate Language Services: TDABids.com

  • Flawless integration throughout an organization;
  • No software or hardware to install or purchase;
  • Uniform updates at no expense to the company;
  • 5% Pay-per-Use: no contracts, no fixed fees.

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, a proprietary solution — developed, managed and hosted by Translatus, Inc. — is the first cloud computing solution for the translation and language services needs of corporations.

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.

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”.

It is accessible via Internet, and as such, no expensive upgrades or implementation patches are required. Users are provided automatically with the most up-to date information, including uniform product updates, as soon as it is available. Users can access the system from standard Internet browsers and upload and manage language projects without installing any additional software. Distributed over the Internet through a secure-access website, there are no compatibility issues and it is easily accessible from any location.

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.

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.

The TDABids.com difference:

  • Choose from over 2,000 language professionals or add your own to the database at no extra charge;
  • Request a price quote or assign a project to the internal Language Service Department in your company;
  • Track projects online, issue purchase orders, manage multiple projects;
  • All project information including files, support material and communications between buyers and language professionals are stored online;
  • Accessible 24/7 from any computer with an Internet connection.

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.
