Better, Smarter, and Faster Website Translation
GMScloud is an enterprise proxy translation cloud system that simplifies website localization, and accelerates multilingual global content delivery.
GMScloud dramatically simplifies website localization and streamlines global content delivery so businesses can get ahead faster in international markets. It automates web content extraction, multilingual translation, website update detection, and globalization management, regardless of your web infrastructure for a robust, total enterprise website translation solution.
Traditionally, enterprise website translation has been a tedious and time consuming process. First, the customer’s development team must manually extract text content from backend databases, CMS systems and web applications into string files. This process requires not only coding knowledge, but also internationalization trainings, such as multilingual enablement, language meta tags, currency and date conversions, as well as considerations for text expansions/contractions, file naming conventions, and language file organization.
Next, the string files are sent to the LSP (localization service provider) for translation. Since these text strings are stripped of its contextual information, the translation process usually takes longer as a result of extra linguistic queries. Language quality may also suffer because linguists never get the opportunity to reference the actual web pages in order to create the most accurate translations based on its original layout and context.
Finally, the clients’ developers must spend substantial time and effort to re-import the translated strings back into the CMS systems, databases and backend applications to create the localized website. Often times, import failures occur due to misplaced tags and other language encoding issues. To make matters worse, the entire localized website must be linguistically and cosmetically checked for translation and formatting issues in a process called localization testing.
This is why typical website translation projects can take months, or even up to a year to complete. As a result, companies lose critical time-to-market and ROI, as development roadmaps are extended causing international product deployment to be delayed.
GMScloud is a game changing solution for website translation as it removes the pain of manually extracting and importing content through various systems and applications. It uses the simple CDN (content distribution network) strategy to work directly with the rendered HTML pages using a common strategy called “cache”. Our technology automatically extracts text from these static HTML files without getting bogged down with backend databases and applications so the translation process becomes simpler, faster, and hassle-free.
Change Management Made Easy
One of the major bottlenecks of the traditional website translation process is the effective management of subsequent updates once a website has already been localized. Instead of going through cumbersome manual text extraction and insertions, GMScloud automatically detects updates by crawling your web-content on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Then it only translates the changed content so your multilingual pages always stay in perfect sync with your source website.
Smarter Website Localization
GMScloud provides global enterprises with intelligent, fast, and cost effective solutions for website translation. It gives you the option to translate only the pages that your multilingual users actually visit. Traditionally, you localize your entire website, regardless of the fact that certain pages may never get visited by your target language customers, resulting in a significant waste of money, time, and effort. GMScloud automatically detects each target page your web users actually visit, and then translates it on-demand.
Accelerated Global Content Delivery
GMScloud speeds up the delivery of localized web content worldwide so your international customers get what they want, when they want it . Powered by our Global Content Delivery Cloud with dedicated data centers in North America, Europe, Asia, Latin America, and Africa, GMScloud is the industry’s leading multilingual content delivery network. GMScloud caches and stores multilingual static pages on its global servers and delivers one of the fastest performances worldwide.
With GMScloud, you get better translation results as it allows linguists to translate in-context by seeing the actual web pages in its original layout. Translation accuracy no longer suffers when linguists translate isolated strings. Legacy website localization processes rely on stand-alone text string files devoid of layout and other reference information. Consequently, translation quality often become inferior resulting in costly rework, or worse, lost customer trust and confidence. With GMScloud, linguists have the ability to view the actual HTML pages in real-time so they can confidently translate in-context providing superior linguistic quality.
Global SEO Support

GMScloud is the world’s first website proxy translation solution that supports mobile translation, delivering just-in-time human translations by automatically notifying our professional linguists of your translation request. This allows them to immediately start translating anywhere and anytime, all from their smartphone or other mobile device.
What Is Web Proxy Translation?
Web proxy translation is a technology that simplifies website localization by using a remote server to crawl the content of the host webserver, localize that content as static HTML files, and then cache the translated pages in order to serve them upon request. From the web user’s standpoint, the proxy content delivery process is completely seamless. In a way, web proxy translation operates in a similar fashion as CDN (content delivery network) in that content of a website is cached (saved as static files) on the network’s servers around the world and is dynamically delivered on-demand to users when they request that information. However, the main difference between web proxy translation cloud and CDN is that the cached content is also translated, so what is stored on the proxy translation servers are static multilingual HTML files.
