Letter of Recommendation from Bentley Systems

21 November 2012

Since 2007, Lexcelera has been providing translation and localization services to Bentley Systems Inc., the global leader dedicated to providing architects, engineers, geospatial professionals, constructors, and owner-operators with comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure. Our work with Lexcelera has resulted in an average of 20% cost savings and up to a 30% improvement in time to market.

While Lexcelera provides us with both traditional translation and machine translation, we have standardized on machine translation for online help and courseware. Because these need to be publication quality, we use machine translation with post-editing. Currently, we are up to six languages in production (French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch and Japanese).

In terms of quality, we were surprised to see an improvement in quality by using MT. In blind tests with each major language, reviewers consistently evaluated the post-edited MT output as equal or superior to the traditional output.

Weekly conference calls between Bentley Systems and Lexcelera show the high level of Lexcelera’s customer service and dedication to continually providing Bentley Systems with innovative translation solutions.

I would not hesitate to recommend Lexcelera as a translation and localization services provider .

John Papaioannou,
Director of Release Services
