Lionbridge and inRiver PIM announced today that the new Lionbridge Freeway adapter seamlessly connects Lionbridge’s translation automation to award-winning inRiver’s PIM (Product Information Management) software. The adapter brings international markets closer in a fast and cost-efficient way for companies, by giving them the tools to respond to the demands of the global market when expanding their business.
Working with companies that have the global market as their arena poses a number of challenges. Product Information Management is often a challenge where current and new markets should be handled more efficiently with existing resources. For Lionbridge as a language specialist, it also means providing solutions that enable and simplify the road to the global market by optimizing the process of creating, translating and publishing the right content in the right language.
Producing, managing product content and creating compelling product stories in a main language for all channels in inRiver PIM, the Lionbridge Freeway adapter transmits the translatable texts to Lionbridge, and reads in the translated texts back into inRiver PIM. By seamlessly connecting the solutions, the efficiency of producing perfect product content in a PIM software and combining it with fast translations, companies can build an attractive product offering while making product launches and product maintenance in international markets a significantly faster process. Managing product information and translations in an efficient process gives companies up to 50% faster time-to-market, with up to 60% lower translation cost.
“Partnering with inRiver PIM is a strong and purposeful partnership where our combined solutions are able to contribute to technically advanced and quality-driven processes and system support to our common customers. We can help our customers in their strive for producing more and relevant product information simultaneously in several markets.

We are looking forward to the cooperation with inRiver and assisting our customers in their global market launches in a fast and cost-efficient way” says Matz Söderberg, Channel Manager, Lionbridge.
