Immediate Press Release

ETHIOTRANS SUPPORTS 100 WORLD LANGUAGES.

 July 10, 2004: San Diego, California, USA: Ethiotrans, a San Diego, CA based Localization and Translation Company  announced that today it will support 100 world languages for its clients word wide. In 1999 Yebbo Communication Networks was offering free translation service for its  web site visitors  and suddenly the demand was raising dramatically. Soon the Ethiotrans founder combined his localization software engineering skill and his native language experience together, and he started Ethiotrans.com    He said “The African languages are left behind to participate in the 21st century” and in Feb 2002 he started to offer his own native language “Amharic” and added Oromo, Somali and Tigrinya and lunched Ethiotrans.com. He said “I want to start from what have inside information. That is my own language” then he expanded his language support to the East African languages (Dinka. Nuer, Swahili, and Ibo) after that every day the request was flowing from all over the word and the language list was star growing fast.

The big challenge was finding the right person  for the right project and finding the right tool to the right assignment. This was because of lack of networking and lack of technology support. For example,  not having a reliable internet access in most African countries and not having enough software applications support for African languages was a headache. Also most software applications are not enabled to support UNICODE that was bottleneck to use this application for the Desk Top Publishing environment.  Such best examples are, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Quark Express were/are some of the best examples who did not support UNICODE.  But thank you for friends, relatives, coworkers’ newsgroups and fellow translators support, Ethiotrans was managed to tackle lots of obstacles and solve lost of issues. Ethiotrans passed a very challenging road.  There were several occurrences where the client refused to pay but Ethiotrans had to pay for our translators from our pocket, there were few times where one translator did bad job and another translator had to be hired because of poor quality, and Ethiotrans was loosing lots of money.  But that was to proof our company is dedicated to provide a quality job. There were several moments where software applications did not support most African languages and we had to bump our head to the wall to bring something from the impossible for our clients. Even the clients did not understand what was going on. In the contrary, there were several shining moments for Ethiotrans,  that is why we are  still in business.

 

Ethiotrans helped several companies, organizations, individuals, and businesses all over the world. We resolved conflicts, we saved lives; we produced a product that will change people’s life. We’ve received calls from al over the word for various reasons.  From helping people to name their pets,  to helping researchers  to find the origin of a manuscript,  our service goes beyond our expectation. Ethiotrans helped us to see the power of language! We believe there is a direct relationship between language and life. For us language is a key to survive. It is life!

 

Now our confident level is high! We have lost of returning clients; they are satisfied with our professional quality oriented work.  We proofed ourselves we can produce something from nothing. Now we see lots of bright moments ahead of us. Now even companies like Microsoft understands the importance of technology to African people and we see there is a direct correlation between language (our localization department) and technology and we hope all the obstacles we had in the past will be a distance away. We hope lots of software companies will add African language support to their product. Also we see companies, organizations; government offices will add the African language part of their language support near the future

 

Today we are celebrating a big milestone to our company, which is expanding our language support beyond African languages; today as of July 9, 2004 we are supporting 100 languages. This will not change our primary focus, which is Focusing on African Languages; however it will create a new power and marketing opportunities for translation agencies and translation processionals to add African language support part of their language list.  We will support 100 languages by hiring independent contactors (language professionals) or by partnering with other translation agencies.  This is a big chapter to our company.  In our translators pool we have translation professionals from all over the world, not only they are all over the world but also they have diverse experience, skill and education. We have engineers, medical doctors, teachers, students, economists, artists, cultural consultants and so many others.  Since there is a direct correlation between language and culture we took this relationship seriously. For example in order to have an accurate and culturally fit translation we have several native translators. We respect a talent of people who can speak and translate more than one language, but most of the time we assign a project for the native speaker.  This will insure  to have the highest quality and culturally acceptable translation.
