Bodybuilding.com Debuts Its E-Commerce Store in Brazil With Sajan’s Localization and Internationalization Expertise
RIVER FALLS, WI–(Marketwired – Jan 7, 2014) – Sajan, Inc. (OTCQB: SAJA), a leading language services and technology provider, has been selected by Bodybuilding.com — the world’s largest online sports nutrition company and number one sports e-retailer — to strengthen the Fortune 500 company’s global presence. Sajan has helped launch Bodybuilding.com‘s e-commerce store for the Brazil market, the latest step in its global strategy.
Before Sajan came on board, Bodybuilding.com took steps to internationalize their e-commerce site, but they faced technical challenges and needed assistance from a company with a depth of experience in the field. They evaluated several translation providers and selected Sajan primarily for its strong technical expertise.
Sajan’s localization engineering team provided that expertise and became an integral part of the extended Bodybuilding.com team, working closely with members of the delivery team to implement the required solution. Dealing with the Bodybuilding.com team’s highly structured and format-rich content called for a unique approach. This involved a pseudo-translation and internationalization testing phase to ensure that the site back-end fully supported the addition of new languages.
Sajan dedicated a translation team with deep knowledge of the Bodybuilding.com product line to work very closely with Bodybuilding.com’s in-country team to ensure appropriate product branding and messaging for the market.
In addition, Sajan streamlined the translation process with its translation management system, Sajan Transplicity, which offers automation capabilities that make managing the company’s global content faster and simpler. The solution has relieved much of the heavy lifting connected with localization.
“Without Sajan, I just wouldn’t have been able to go any farther into localization with the resources I had,” said Carrie Fischer, localization program manager at Bodybuilding.com. “From their deep technical ability to their efficiency-driven project management team, Sajan is a true solution provider that’s always looking for ways to improve the process.”
“We are extremely thrilled to be partnering with Bodybuilding.com on their exciting international expansion,” said Shannon Zimmerman, CEO of Sajan. “This is a prime example of how our talented localization engineering and project management teams shine in their respective roles. As we roll out more of this enterprise solution, we look forward to helping Bodybuilding.com achieve ever-greater global prominence.”
