outstanding customer service
At Akorbi, relationships with our clients, along with customer service, are the fulcrum of our language translation company. Moreover, we consider your clients to be our clients. Every project handled by our team is treated as if it were for our very own end-user client.
Unlike other large language translation companies in the industry, our translation processes are not set in stone. The customer’s individual needs are always taken into account. A constant dialogue takes place between your company’s representative, an Akorbi project manager, and the translation team.
To ensure consistency, every project pertaining to your account is assigned to the same internal production team and a dedicated project manager. We also provide the option of creating translation glossaries for projects and departments.
Discounts are applied to all word repetitions in and among your translated documents. Repeated words are added to a repository for your company, so that the more work you do with us, the more return on investment you receive. Customers also save on high-volume projects.
Akorbi’s well-established infrastructure allows us to quickly deliver quality and accurate translations. Akorbi also maintains several ISO certifications to ensure quality. These include EN 15038:2006, ISO 13485:2003, and ISO 9001:2008.
Only a few language service providers have the ability to handle a large volume of projects. Akorbi is one of the top providers of linguistic services for both large and small organizations. This scalability has allowed Akorbi to maintain a satisfied list of clients for more than 15 years.
Akorbi is one of the few language service providers with HIPAA and CMS compliance in the United States. From secure server facilities to building with access controls, Akorbi meets the security standards of organizations with strict compliance requirements.
Website and Software Localization
If you’re looking for language services for your company, it’s important to understand exactly what localization is and why it is critical in today’s global communication landscape.
Unlike translation, which is the process of translating text from one language into another while ensuring the meaning of the original text does not change, localization works to build accurate content on a page but is also filled with cultural and non-textual components. Oftentimes when localization is not used or considered, the meaning of the content is poorly understood or lost on the recipient altogether. This creates a breakdown in communication and irrelevant content for the reader, which in turn generates poor engagement and retention.
The goal of localization is to give the product/service the look and feel of having been created specifically for a target market, no matter their language, culture or location. Akorbi’s experts have a deep understanding of international cultures and languages. Our in-country localization staff reviews the language and style of your website and product software with careful attention to cultural and language nuances. They ensure your UI and website is completely valid and accurate for each geographic market. While this includes translation, Akorbi’s experts also address other factors such as date – month before day or day before month – and measurement formats – meter vs. mile? There’s also currency units to consider, such as pounds, dollars or pesos. They are also sensitive to local idioms, text length and cultural references.
Native-speaking testers then send the localized versions through rigorous testing to ensure that no code has been broken by the internationalization processes and that the product is ready for distribution. Our teams include programmers, graphic designers, translators, reviewers, proofreaders, engineers, testers and project managers.
Akorbi’s website and localization services offer the following features:
Automatic content discovery
Akorbi automatically crawls all your website content and handles the translation automatically, without any intervention required from your company.
Translation in your website’s original layout
Akorbi’s translators will work in your website’s original layout to avoid any contextual, grammar or formatting mistakes.
Automatic change detection and notification
Akorbi will monitor your website, and if new content is added, it will be translated immediately and available in every language you require, without any intervention from your company.
Advanced dynamic site management
Akorbi has the ability through pre-translation features and plugins to respond to website changes quickly and efficiently, ensuring consistency across all sites.
Worldwide content delivery network
By providing a worldwide content delivery network, Akorbi offers a better visitor experience. Your website’s language versions will be edge-cached on servers near the relevant market, so your visitors will experience shorter response times.
Akorbi extracts all the meta-tags, titles, headings, key words, terms and alt-texts that the search engines crawl, localize and optimize them, then place them into your localized website for each language.
Akorbi’s translation proxy runs on the same infrastructure as Gmail and Google Search, so it can easily handle large amounts of traffic.
Creating dynamic and accurate localization content on your website and your documents will attract and engage your visitors, creating better rapport. If you are interested in our localization services, contact us today.

Akorbi’s automated translation services combine human translation and advanced automation tools to increase accuracy and speed, while reducing repetitive human tasks. Automation is ideal for large and high-volume publishing and translation projects, such as manuals, directories and benefit summaries that previously required multiple translators and thousands of man hours. Now, with a click of a button, they can be completed in a fraction of the time and cost.
Do you need to translate informational or unofficial documents for internal use only? If so, machine translations may be the answer. Our translation team can provide machine translation and post-editing workflow with client consent.

Our focus is on the implementation of best practices that allow a full array of multilingual processes ranging from translation to publishing.
We are always able to identify savings opportunities for our clients. We also work closely with our clients to select the right linguists, automate repetitive language tasks, centralize language memories, technology implementations for quality assurance, reevaluation of the workflow to cut redundant steps, and much more. When properly accomplished, these services can become part of the most efficient methods for reducing both the time and the cost associated with localization while also providing our clients with the best return on investment possible. It is our goal to decrease the costs of tasks that are non-translation involved.
