Welocalize helps organizations increase operational efficiencies and works with global clients to deploy their leading technology platform like GlobalSight—an open-source translation management platform. The platform leverages technology and talent to offer a sustainable solution for managing, translating, and delivering content. The Translation Management System (TMS) helps automate the review, storage, and management of business content. Through an open and modular design, organizations can depend on the ability of Welocalize’s on-demand TMS system. InSight, the company’s client portal, helps customers request quotes and project specifications, monitor and track spending as well as manage Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). “InSight helps increase speed to market for the translated content,” affirms Glass. Welocalize also provides language services to brand leaders in the oil and gas space.
The company’s capabilities are diverse; they range from software and mobile app localization to device testing. They localize all content types from patents to technical documents and user guides. “It is the value of being a trusted partner with our client to meet their critical deadlines that has provided us the position to be one of the largest language service providers,” says Glass.

For instance, a global oil and gas services organization had significant translation requirements for internal and external business needs. Although they had centralized purchasing in Houston, their business stakeholders were spread across many segments and locations. As the translation buyers were distributed, they were not able to leverage their overall spend and effort. Welocalize introduced a centralized TMS that can be leveraged by multiple stakeholders with independent budgets. “A primary advantage to a TMS is the ability to ‘reuse’ translated content,” says Glass. Through this implementation, the client achieved as much as 30 percent and greater savings on translations.
With the oil and gas domain constantly evolving and expanding, Welocalize is on a mission to keep pace and provide superior translation and multilingual services across the globe. “We will continue to expand Welocalize through research and development, organic growth, and acquisitions,” says Glass. In the near future, the company aims to offer a range of services including interpretation, staffing solutions, legal solutions, marketing solutions, and onshore and offshore production.
