We were all told when we started out in business that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. But how much of that do you think is really true?
Sure, whether you’re starting your own business or climbing the corporate career ladder, we could all do with a connection that would open doors and help access information or opportunities that would usually fall just out of reach. An ‘enabler’, if you will; a person that makes something possible, something like going global quickly and efficiently, an opportunity a growing business certainly wouldn’t want to miss.
Enablers that allow you to take your small or growing business to a new marketplace, or help market your company to a new audience are priceless, especially when businesses that export to one or more countries are 13% more likely to forecast revenue growth than those don’t.
But surely it’s what you know that makes the connection with an enabler more interesting. That’s certainly the case when it comes to connectors in technology where both are considered equally important and are used more and more by businesses that want to go global.
The geeks behind SDL Managed Translation, a cloud based translation platform that provides quality translations powered by world-leading technology, recognised this and have been working hard to develop a new connector that enables business and content owners – as well as localisation managers – to access external content files that they want to translate directly from the Managed Translation platform. This platform improvement also enables you to get a translation quote as well as create a project on-the-go, not having to faff around with downloading content externally before then uploading it to the Managed Translation platform… saving you precious time, energy and effort so that you can focus on other areas of your business.
What’s more, translated files can then be uploaded directly back to your chosen external content repository when the translation is completed by one of SDL’s 15,000-plus in-country ISO certified translators. Simple!
So it turns out that success in business isn’t just about who you know or what you know. It’s about what enables you to connect (who) your information (what), whether that’s through the people you get to know or the technology that you use.
