Presentations to Cover Technology for Global M&A Due Diligence Along with New Technology for Realizing “Better, Faster, and Cheaper” at Upcoming Industry Conference

Elanex, Inc., a leader in language translation services and technologies announces that Donald Plumley, president and CEO, will be speaking on “Global Due Diligence: Technology to keep cross-border deals on track" with co-presenter Philip Whitchelo, vice president strategy & product marking for Intralinks, at Localization World 2013.

The session will be held at the Novotel London West hotel on Friday June 14, 2013 at 10:30AM. Plumley and Whitchelo will discuss the market for global M&A, the challenges and opportunities for removing language as a barrier to efficient cross-border deals, and a case study that highlights the partnership between Intralinks, a leading global technology provider of inter-enterprise content management and collaboration solutions, and Elanex, a technology-enabled translation services provider. The case study examines a project with a US-based acquirer of a Chinese company and how technology enabled due diligence to be completed in record time.

Later the same day, Joe Dougherty, Elanex’s vice president for business development, will be speaking on “Better, Faster, Cheaper: A technology-based alternative to picking two of the three.” This talk, at 3:30PM, will highlight the practical application of advanced workflow technology developed by Elanex to serve the ‘long-tail’ requirements of short, urgent translation not served by machine translation or ‘good enough’ services. According to Joe, “The time has come for a high-quality, time-sensitive automated online service without price penalties. This requires more finessed automation: a professional quality paradigm coupled with decision support technology to eliminate time and cost constraints.” Elanex will introduce expressIt, a novel online service that delivers expert translation incredibly fast.

Localization World brings together delegates who are engaged in the business of adapting products, services and communications to an international language or culture so as to appear native to that particular region. Other speakers at the conference include representatives from Adobe Systems Inc., Autodesk Inc., Caterpillar, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, Zynga and many others including well-known analyst groups. David Smith, Economics Editor of The Sunday Times, will deliver the keynote address. Localization World is produced by MultiLingual Computing, Inc. and The Localization Institute.

“Far too much attention is focused at free online translation websites or simplistic portals and freelance directories. Every successful global enterprise recognizes that professional, expert translation is an essential investment to protect and extend brand equity for the international audience,” said Plumley. “By using our ‘crowd in the cloud’ we can tremendously reduce the turnaround time for expert translation, and through our advanced workflow management technology and the intelligent application of automation, we are able to remove the historical bottlenecks in the translation process. Our talk at Localization world highlights how this technology, combined with the latest in collaboration solutions, enables global deals and global commerce to move at the speed of business,” he concluded.
