Global Press Release Distribution Service, Kontax, Launches in 160 Countries and over 60 languages
Kontax is a new press release service specialising in the distribution of multilingual news and information that is simple to use and highly effective, anywhere in the world.
Kontax - HTT - Bihorel - France - In today's global economy, issuing press releases for international audiences is a decisive but difficult task for corporate communicators: in addition to cost, professional press release distribution services are often monolingual or available in a very limited range of languages, with no guarantee of translation quality.
Kontax (www.kontax.com) is a new press release service specialising in the distribution of multilingual news and information that is simple to use and highly effective, anywhere in the world.
Available in more than 160 countries and over 60 languages, Kontax allows companies and organisations in every country to publish – free of charge – an unlimited number of multimedia press releases in the language of their choice, and to obtain professional translations of their press releases in any other language.
Users have direct contact with Kontax partner translation companies – most of which have ISO 9001 or equivalent certification, and all of which apply EN 15038 quality assurance procedures – appointed in each country to ensure translated press releases are optimised for cost and quality.
Translations of press releases – including proof-reading, publication, distribution, updating and real-time feedback on media impact – are handled from end to end by the Kontax manager for each customer, enabling them to effortlessly address any international target, any time, in any language.
According to Malcolm Duff, CEO of HTT, the lead company in the worldwide network of Kontax Translation Managers, “Kontax represents a major change in the business model for press releases: instead of paying high prices for a local service of limited worth, customers can now invest in a global service at a competitive price with genuine added value”.

Online management of multiple customer accounts,
Automatic multilingual e-mail alerts by keyword, city, country, category and language
Real-time feedback on reader statistics by country and language,
