FamilySearch had been globalized for years. family search webinarIt’s an actively used, dynamic site with a worldwide audience and presented in fourteen languages. But despite having a large and resourceful team of translators and tools, site updates that require localization caused backlogs and disparities between development and localization teams. This problem was costing FamilySearch time, money and resources, all of which could have been deployed to develop new content and features. As a result, product teams experienced significant barriers in improving the global experience of the site. Many companies successfully internationalize and localize. But, because they have little technology to innumerate, support and maintain globalization, measuring and maintaining the process is difficult. As a result they experience expensive delays and reactive surprises. FamilySearch turned to Lingoport and Globalyzer Express solve these problems. FamilySearch selected Globalzyer Express because of the ease of implementation and minimal disruption to development release cycles. Using Globalyzer and Lingoport’s Professional Services, FamilySearch created an integrated system to automate, track, verify, approve and implement interface and content changes.
As a result, FamilySearch was able to:

  • unify development and localization teams
  • measure and share changes that affect localization in each sprint, translation scheduling, turnaround and updated builds
  • improve the workflow between product builds and translation updates
  • automate to eliminate chances for errors that cause blow-up problems, while keeping controls to ensure an accurate update process
  • significantly reduce time to market, making site improvements available to international users on an accelerated schedule
