MotaWord announces support for over 70 languages; massive opportunity for freelance translators

MotaWord, the world's fastest, collaborative human translation platform recently announced support for 70 languages. This increase is an important opportunity for professional freelance translators looking to grow their revenue and for non-US based transl

NEW YORK, March 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MotaWord, the world's fastest human translation platform, has become the first true collaborative translation system to support over 70 languages.

The cloud-based platform, launched late 2013, allows anyone to submit a document, instantly see a quote, start a professional translation, and receive the results, all in a fraction of the time needed by a traditional translation company. MotaWord's award-winning website makes it very easy.

"MotaWord was born out of the frustrations I've had from my years and years in the translation industry," said MotaWord founder Evren Ay. "Our process allows multiple translators to work on the same document simultaneously, and the technology scales to handle the smallest or largest projects with ease."

A better way of working for professional linguists
Collaboration technology is a great innovation for professional translators, who face significant challenges working for legacy translation companies. "Nearly every translation job I've worked on has involved a lot of wasted time," said Vanessa, a translator with 8 years experience in the industry. "I lose a lot of time and opportunities waiting for project orders, filling out invoices, and emailing project managers."

Not anymore.

"With MotaWord, I get an email when a project is available. I can contribute a lot or a little. There's no overhead. And I get paid automatically through PayPal--I never have to fill out an invoice or make calls trying to collect money I was owed months ago."

Ay agrees: "MotaWord's Collaborative Translators are able to focus on just one thing: providing their best translations."

As a result, translators can contribute to MotaWord when between traditional translation assignments. "During the dead time during other projects, waiting for answers and that sort of thing, my time is no longer wasted," said Vanessa.

"Now, whenever I have extra time, I contribute to MotaWord, and continue to earn money."

A tremendous opportunity for growth
With the explosive growth in MotaWord's business, a substantial number of professional linguists will be needed.

"We are continuing to recruit talented translators, and as we move to 70 languages and beyond, there is a lot of opportunity," says Serhan Ayhan, MotaWord's Community Manager.

Ay agrees. "With the customers we are attracting to our platform, there will be limitless opportunities for translators to earn money, and see their earnings grow along with our company," he said.

By working with other professionals, MotaWord's collaborative translators can hone their skills and build experience with new types of projects and verticals.

The ease of working with the platform, the freedom to make any size contribution to a document, and ability to gain experience in multiple verticals make MotaWord an exciting opportunity for professional translators.

Interested professional linguists can register by going to and clicking on "Work With Us."

While testing is often ignored when it comes to DevOps - it could be the most important aspect of achieving true DevOps success.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...
