RIVER  FALLS, WI - (ACCESSWIRE - December 3, 2013) - Sajan, Inc. (SAJA), a leading provider of global language services and technology, announced today that Hotelbeds has named Sajan a preferred provider of translation services. Hotelbeds is an accommodation wholesaler, servicing over 50,000 hotels across 183 countries. To further propel its explosive growth, Hotelbeds chose Sajan to rewrite and translate hotel descriptions for approximately 10,000 hotel properties, with several thousand more soon to follow.

Hotelbeds' previous model - using internal teams to translate content - led to scalability and quality concerns, resulting in a decision to outsource translation services to a proven vendor.

"We've been delighted with the level of service and quality we've seen from Sajan," said a project manager at Hotelbeds. "With their global footprint, technology-based solution and deep knowledge of the hotel industry, Sajan gives us the expertise and scalability we need to keep our edge."

Sajan has assembled teams of in-country copywriter linguists to write hotel descriptions from scratch and rewrite existing content in Simplified Chinese, Thai, Japanese and other Asian languages. The process involves optimizing content, which includes maximizing reuse of already-translated content going forward to help keep Hotelbeds'  translation costs down.

The two companies have also discussed kicking off systems integration in the coming weeks. Sajan will integrate Sajan Transplicity, its translation management system, into Hotelbeds' content management system for even greater time and cost efficiencies.

"Hotelbeds operates with a vast global reach, which requires a translation services provider that is just as geographically nimble - a trait that Sajan embodies," said Shannon Zimmerman, CEO of Sajan. "We are proud to be working with Hotelbeds, and we look forward to seeing our relationship grow."
