Bangkok Airways has launched a Simplified Chinese booking site.
The boutique Thai carrier has worked with Translations.com, a division of TransPerfect, to develop the site as it is growing its presence in Asia.
The site uses TransPerfect’s GlobalLink OneLink; a proxy-based website localization solution that automates many of the manual tasks associated with the translation of global content.
As the site adds more languages, the solution will simplify the ongoing maintenance of www.bangkokair.com by automatically routing new content to TransPerfect’s production department for translation and placing the translated content back on the localized site.
Translations.com will support the launch and ongoing maintenance of the airline’s booking site.
Prote Setsuwan, Vice President of Marketing at Bangkok Airways:
“OneLink has helped us to kick-start our global expansion in a manner which is both cost-effective and low maintenance from an internal resources perspective. I am confident our newly localized sites will be key to increasing our market share. “
Liz Elting, TransPerfect Co-CEO:
“Bangkok Airways has a clear vision for international expansion, and fully embraces the benefits of establishing their presence in Asia. We are excited to be their partner of choice to help meet the needs of their growing passenger base.”
Phil Shawe, Co-CEO of TransPerfect:
“We are pleased to be able to partner with a respected airline like Bangkok Airways. As they begin their globalization journey, we look forward to providing support for their efforts to reach new customers abroad.”
