Array Delivers on it's Promise of Applied Innovation by Converging Web 2.0 Technical Expertise with Foreign Linguistics, Culture and U.S. Foreign Policy to help IIP Successfully Deliver on its Mission.

ARRAY’s knowledge of foreign linguistics, culture, and U.S. foreign policy blended with Web 2.0 technical skills have been key to the company’s innovative broadening of its mission support for the State Department.

ARRAY has expanded its relationship with State Department’s IIP Bureau to provide comprehensive support for its outreach to international audiences. Converging Web 2.0 technical expertise with knowledge of difficult languages, culture, and U.S. foreign policy, ARRAY has applied an innovative approach that goes far beyond technology.

ARRAY’s staff helps the Bureau fully interact with foreign bloggers--writing, editing, and researching with deep cultural familiarity while posting content and managing blogs using the latest technology. Since 2006, the number of ARRAY employees has doubled in the Digital Outreach Team that reaches out in Arabic, Farsi, and Urdu through the most popular blogs in those languages. ARRAY provides a major component of this team and has helped greatly increase the posted messages and the audience base. In Chinese, ARRAY employees are key to drafting, editing, translating, and maintaining the “Wild Geese” blog. It has been well received; for example, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter observed that the blog’s detailed information on the United States was easy to understand.

This work fundamentally supports the Bureau’s mission, helping to draw attention to foreign policy and information about the U.S. with bloggers as well as in digital and print media outlets overseas. Brian Leung, CEO of ARRAY, states that “ARRAY’s knowledge of foreign linguistics, culture, and U.S. foreign policy blended with Web 2.0 technical skills have been key to the company’s innovative broadening of its mission support for the State Department”
