KantanMT Announces Members Subscription Price Plans
Xcelerator Machine Translation Ltd. today announced details of its monthly member’s subscription plans, which come into effect on the 1st June 2013.
While traditional Machine Translation solutions require high upfront costs, lengthy deployment times and on-going maintenance fees, KantanMT.com offers affordable monthly subscription plans which give small-to-medium sized Localisation Service Providers (LSPs) the opportunity to integrate MT into their workflow at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions.
“The mid-sized LSP community want a low-cost, affordable MT platform, that can be accessed easily and be customised for their client needs”, said Tony O’Dowd, Founder and Chief Architect at KantanMT. “KantanMT.com addresses these requirements head-on.”.
Recent market analysis has highlighted that localisation service providers are under constant pressure from their clients to do more for less! KantanMT.com is proven to increase translation productivity, reducing project turn-around time and improving project margins.
One member company, who have recently deployed KantanMT.com in their production environment reported that “They [We] are able to translate higher volumes, in shorter periods of time – whilst maintaining the same quality as human translation”.
The new subscription plans will come into effect on the 1st June and until then KantanMT.com will be free to use for all registered members.

What is Xcelerator?
Xcelerator Machine Translations Solution is a new start-up that is focusing on making Machine Translation easy to use, inexpensive to access and available to mid-sized LSPs that are eager to integrate MT into their client’s localisation workflows. Xcelerator is focusing on the growing number of small-to-medium sized language service providers (LSPs) that want to – or must – offer machine translation to their clients.
Recent research on pricing shows that while a very small percentage of translation agencies use MT on every job, nearly a quarter of small LSPs, and more than half of medium-sized LSPs, will apply it if requested to do so by their clients. However, most providers don’t have the technical expertise to install an MT solution, train engines for their clients, and integrate it with their workflow. Xcelerator aims to fill that gap.
