The Worldwide Lexicon translator enables you to publish in any language, using any combination of machine, community and professional translators.
The Worldwide Lexicon translator supports machine translation, but it does much more. You can translate your site using automated services like Google Translate, but you can also allow your readers to translate your posts for you, and you can subscribe to SpeakLike, a professional translation service that costs just pennies per word. So you can use whatever combination of translation services works best for your quality requirements, audience and budget.
Machine translation is available for over 50 languages, while SpeakLike professional translation is available for 35 languages. Community translation works for hundreds of languages. If you have volunteers who speak an uncommon language, WWL will support it.
Machine translations appear instantly, as soon as you publish a post. Community translations depend on your user community and how quickly they respond to your invitation to translate posts. Professional translations are completed within a day, and depending on the service level, can be much faster (1-2 hours).
As little as six cents / word. The per word cost varies based on the languages used, and on the service level agreement. SpeakLike offers both low cost options, with turnaround time of about a day, as well as higher cost, rapid response service with turnaround times of less than two hours.
