PCI Security Standards Council Deploys Translations.com's GlobalLink Technology to Translate Global Website
NEW YORK, NY, February 8, 2010 – Translations.com, the world’s largest privately held provider of translation services and language management technologies, today announced the successful localization of www.PCISecurityStandards.org into French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Italian, and German.
Founded in 2006 by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa Inc., the PCI Security Standards Council is responsible for the development, management, education, and awareness of the PCI Data Security Standards, which are designed to ensure the security of cardholder data worldwide. The PCI Security Standards Council has over 600 Participating Organization companies worldwide. Bob Russo, general manager of the PCI Security Standards Council, explained, “As a global organization focused on securing payment card data, it is critical we provide our stakeholders worldwide with the resources they need to meet this goal, in their own language.”
Translations.com’s GlobalLink™ technology offers companies both hosted and installed options for launching and automatically maintaining translated websites with minimal IT involvement. By combining GlobalLink OneLink with Translations.com’s language services, PCI was able to localize its website and related documents into 8 languages in only 2 months with a completely hosted solution. When PCI makes updates to the English website in the future, GlobalLink will automatically detect and route new content to Translations.com for localization by professional human translators, then insert the completed translations back into the proper location on the global websites.
“As we continue to develop PCI Security Standards and produce new resources for our stakeholders, it was critical for us to partner with a company who could help us manage our dynamic multilingual site in a cost effective and timely manner,” added Russo.
Translations.com CEO Phil Shawe said, ”By making their website and standards information accessible to stakeholders in a range of languages, the PCI Security Standards Council has made a significant step forward in its mission to secure payment card data worldwide. We applaud the Council for its efforts and look forward to supporting their ongoing global initiatives for years to come.”
