MTM LinguaSoft Translates Major Philadelphia Visitor Website

MTM LinguaSoft

Tuesday, 23 April, 2013

Last week the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) announced the official launch of its new convention and international visitor website, http://www.discoverPHL.com. Philadelphia language services company MTM LinguaSoft handled the website translation for the versions of the site that are available in French, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. Several other foreign-language microsites, legacies of the old website, are also linked to the new site and the PHLCVB has plans to gradually convert all of them to the new format.


The website was developed using the open source content management system (CMS) Umbraco, and MTM LinguaSoft worked closely with the staff at PHLCVB and digital agency MMGY Global, the site developer, to establish the most efficient translation process.


“As a Philadelphia business, MTM LinguaSoft and its team are particularly proud to have played an important part in this project, which is part of a larger program of rebranding the city under the Discover PHL banner,” says Myriam Siftar, president of MTM LinguaSoft. 


The new website includes a number of features that make it much more useful for the prospective visitor. The new website and supporting tools are “intended to position the City as a global destination for meetings and conventions, international visitors, group travel or prospective students seeking world-class educational institutions.”
