In an industry where 50–80% of the market belongs to small and medium-sized businesses , achieving success means being as lean, agile, and cost-efficient as possible. Smartcat allows LSPs of any size to compete on par with the big players while spending a fraction of the costs they would have had to invest otherwise.
Top global translation companies invest millions of dollars every year to get and keep their IT systems up and running. These can go either for in-house development or to purchase licenses of similarly big incumbent translation software vendors. You cannot afford millions.
With a few configs and tweaks, you can get connected right into your customers’ content flows. Whether it’s a prebuilt integration, a custom API script, or a nifty web portal, your customers will enjoy the ability to work with you without exchanging tons of emails. That’s one of the key reasons they go to the big MLVs — and now it is no more.
Can you imagine an LSP with just over 30 employees handling 3,400,000-words project in 10 days? That’s totally possible with Smartcat’s 350,000-strong marketplace of translators who can be assigned to your projects with a single mouse click. All this does not cost a dime tech-wise — forget per-user licenses and “shared Trados workstations”!
If you are small, making payments to dozens or hundreds of translators all around the globe doesn’t seem like a fun idea, does it? You surely have better things to spend your time and money on. Smartcat allows you to make cost-effective, automated payments to anyone anywhere in the world with as little as one invoice per month!
