Recently Ramon Nuez, along with Zev Green from BreakBumper.tv and Examiner.com, sat down with Alex Buran, CEO of Translation Services USA to talk about the his success in the translation business and how his latest innovations are changing the industry.
As more and more companies and individuals expand online, the idea of consumers remaining within native speaking boundaries becomes more and more old fashioned. Still, the translation process itself is a very elusive concept, as Ramon points out in the interview. Within the past year, however, Translation Services USA (TSU) has developed some unique applications that address these concerns which are creating a lot of buzz in the tech world.
As Alex explains in the interview, Translation Cloud technology attempts to change the old method of translation where one person does everything, ‘from A-Z’ for a particular translation task. Likened to Henry Ford’s assembly-line method of production, Translation Cloud allows the work to be broken up into multiple smaller steps, to be completed by numerous translators simultaneously. Also, with the integration of advanced technology like machine translator programs early on in the process, the ‘post-editing’ process provides much faster and less expensive results, all while continuing to provide steady work for many professional translators.
At this point in TSU’s success, expansion is the next step for the company. The IT department is continually working to improve and update the already successful programs, and work to develop innovative new solutions for the industry. On top of this, Alex states that the company is looking to upgrade to a new office building and hire more staff to keep up with the growing needs of the company.
Up until this point, TSU has been a ‘boot-strap’ company, where only money generated in revenue is put back into expansion. However with the current climate of success, and new developments eager to get off the ground, Alex is considering outside funding through venture capital and angel investors for the first time.
