Customers can now benefit from the ability to host real-time chats with customers in multiple languages

MAIDENHEAD, England, Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SDL Instant Translation for Live Agent is now available on the Salesforce AppExchange, empowering businesses to connect with their customers, partners and employees in entirely new ways. Based on patented Machine Translation technology, SDL Instant Translation for Live Agent helps organisations better serve their global customers, regardless of their spoken language.

Built on the Salesforce Platform, SDL Instant Translation for Live Agent is currently available on the Salesforce AppExchange at:

The technology integrates with Salesforce Live Agent, enabling agents to identify the customer's native language as part of any inbound chat. It then translates the text – in real-time – into the agent's native language. This means that a single agent with limited foreign language skills can still communicate clearly with customers from multiple countries. Customers benefit from immediate answers to their queries without having to queue for available agents who speak their local language. 

In addition, SDL Instant Translation for Live Agent offers:

?      Quality: Advanced machine translation technology for an even greater level of localization automation. Companies can train their own engines and use their own terminology.

?      Traceability: Bilingual chat content is available for the agent and customer to save for later reference.

?      Quality control: Agents can verify the translation retains the original meaning by automatically reverse-checking the translation, ensuring it's accurate.

?      Pre-translated popular phrases: Pre-translated versions of the Quick Text phrases can be leveraged by agents to maximize their efficiency and deliver consistent translation.

?      Partners supported: Also available for third parties to include in their own applications.

?      Any device, anywhere: Provides a multi-channel experience, available via browser, mobile or tablet.
