Babylon for Manufacturing

The globalization of manufacturing operations has created a world market that will continue to expand and strengthen. Companies must adopt strategies that will enable them to gain and maintain a competitive advantage in this global marketplace. Enabling a company’s workforce to communicate clearly and effectively in English is undoubtedly a vital strategy for business success.

Babylon’s single-click translation and dictionary software provides the most effective tools available for organizations whose employees need to communicate in English.

In a single click, Babylon delivers translations and definitions, and converts currency, time zones and units of measure. Babylon is also integrated with Microsoft Office, and gives short definitions and translations for each word suggested by the Office spellchecker.

Companies that can communicate in English have a definite advantage. They can more comfortably contact and negotiate with suppliers and customers. They can more easily obtain information about competitors and developments within their industry. Without language capabilities, companies will miss many potential and profitable trade opportunities.

Babylon can also translate to and from 31 languages the content of entire Internet pages, and documents in Word, text or PDF format. When business intelligence plays a vital role in a company’s business strategy, Babylon enables users to get an immediate, basic understanding of a document or web page written in a language they do not understand, and to decide whether it contains information that requires a more thorough human translation.

Organizations can use Babylon to create customized dictionaries of terminology used specifically within their organization or industrial sector. This content can also be made available to customers as a value-added promotional gift.

Babylon also gives licensed users access to free professional content, including a number of lexicons on topics related to business and manufacturing. These content sources deliver definitions of terms, acronyms and abbreviations, providing a valuable reference tool for Babylon users in the manufacturing sector.
