LinguaNext Technologies joins the SAP eco-system after its language platform Linguify.S being endorsed by SAP as business solution worldwide. SAP will continue to develop localized versions for selected on-premise or cloud solutions, while LinguaNext will offer complementary solutions for product and language combinations not covered by SAP.
Linguify.S makes no changes or modifications to the underlying SAP software or application databases. Instead, language conversion is handled externally at the display level, with all screen output translated in real time using a customized in-memory dictionary. This allows customers to run a single language instance of an SAP application across multiple regions, with users in each country selecting their preferred display language from a drop-down menu.
“Companies are increasingly realizing the benefits of providing their staff, their partners and customers in each country with business applications in their native language, Surveys clearly show that employee productivity and customer engagement levels are much higher when user interfaces and e-commerce platforms are provided in the local language of the country.” said, Jagdish Sahasrabudhe, CEO and co-founder at LinguaNext.
“The LinguaNext solution dramatically reduces the cost, complexity, deployment and time to market of local language enablement of business applications. We are delighted to have received this global endorsement from SAP, the world’s leading provider of enterprise application software.” added Sahasrabudhe,
The managing director for SAP Globalization Services, VR Ferose, said, “As the SAP solution portfolio continues to expand and customer demand for local language increases, we have been looking at innovative new ways to deliver local language that will complement SAP’s own efforts and give our customers more choice. Having endorsed the LinguaNext solution two years ago for selected markets and solutions, we felt very confident expanding the partnership to markets and products worldwide.”
