Business Challenge

It started out as a matter of good timing. When Compliance Wave met LinguaLinx at an ethics conference in 2018, the online compliance training company was readying for a new product launch that required significant translation. With an urgent need to deepen their translation bench, Compliance Wave was hopeful LinguaLinx could provide some additional support.

To test the waters, LinguaLinx was offered a trial project that required the savvy translation company to work outside the typical video subtitling format. After the project's successful completion, and several glowing references later, Compliance Wave was confident that LinguaLinx was the right fit for the upcoming launch.

For the product to be successful, Compliance Wave needed its new partner to provide a turnkey solution. In the past, the company managed all aspects of post-production internally, consuming valuable staff time and resources.

"We were creating our own internal bottleneck," said Jim Calabrese, Director of Product Development at Compliance Wave. "Serving as the middleman between production and translation was causing delays in workflow."

The Scope

LinguaLinx was on board one-hundred percent. Over the next year, LinguaLinx supported Compliance Wave in adding over 300 new items to their resource library. And by managing all elements of the post-production—including translation, voice-over, editing, and video integration—LinguaLinx enabled Compliance Wave to reinvent their internal process, improving both the quality and speed of their work.

"Translation is a complicated, asset-management-heavy business. LinguaLinx has really got a good handle on that process," said Calabrese. "That gives me added confidence when I work with them."

"Quality, cost, speed," he added. "LinguaLinx makes my life easier and that's very important."

Mission accomplished.

Whenever we can save time, it gives us an opportunity to look to the future and plan for new products. It’s a value that’s hard to put a price tag on, but it’s very significant.
