Cloudwords and Acquia Partner to Deliver New Integration for Multilingual Drupal Websites

"Cloudwords for Drupal" Delivers a First for Enterprise Companies Seeking Translation Management Capabilities for Drupal-Based Websites

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- Cloudwords, the first cloud-based translation management application, today announced the launch of Cloudwords for Drupal, a first of its kind integration with a translation management platform for the world's largest open source content management system (CMS). Acquia, the enterprise guide to Drupal, is a key partner in bringing this module to organizations using Drupal with an integration and automation capability that has not previously been available. Today's announcement marks a first for the translation management industry, as Cloudwords will be the first translation management platform to offer pre-packaged integration with Drupal 7.

In today's real-time and dynamic global landscape, managing content changes, multilingual content, and the translation process is difficult and prone to error. Drupal provides a robust multilingual foundation, however, translation at scale has been challenging. The Cloudwords for Drupal module alleviates these challenges with cost, quality and time efficiency, which has, until now, been unavailable within the marketplace.

The new Cloudwords for Drupal module ensures that the days of "copy and paste" or low quality computer-based machine translations are over. The new module provides a deep integration between the Cloudwords platform and Drupal 7 to allows users the ability to:

  • Easily define the content that needs to be translated within Drupal;
  • Automatically sync Drupal content into Cloudwords for high-quality localization and translation via a translation vendor of the user's choice; and
  • Automatically sync the client-approved multilingual content from Cloudwords into Drupal.

A process that once took Drupal users weeks or months to accomplish can now be completed in a few hours or several days.

"We are excited about partnering with Cloudwords to simplify translation management. Cloudwords enables site owners to use any vendor or translator of their choice. It's fast and easy to get up and running, offers seamless integration with Drupal's existing multilingual capabilities and provides a streamlined translation process for Drupal websites," said Joe Wykes, Vice President of Channels at Acquia.

By partnering with Acquia, Cloudwords is taking the benefits of this new module directly to organizations using Drupal. This partnership with Acquia enables customers to benefit from a seamless integration between Cloudwords for Drupal and Drupal 7, ensuring customers easily reap the growing benefits of the Cloudwords Translation Management platform.

"It's important to our customers to know they can run a multilingual website, translate content in an effective manner and be able to achieve this with both time and cost efficiencies. Until today, this ability to go global within the Drupal community, simply wasn't possible," said Michael Meinhardt, Cloudwords CEO. "We are excited to work with Acquia to deliver Cloudwords for Drupal and extend this integration and automation to an entirely new set of organizations that will be able to feel the power of Drupal and experience it as part of the world's most successful Translation Management platform."
